Emerging Nuclear Scandal Shaking Japan as Atomic Olympics Approaches


Two Messages from Our Correspondent in Japan

[1] 09 October 2019

Dear Fucetola-san,

It started with the following press report.

OSAKA (Kyodo) September 27– Kansai Electric Power Co. said Friday 20 people, including its top executives, received a total of 320 million yen ($3 million) in money and goods over a seven-year period from 2011, from an official of a central Japan town that hosts one of the company’s nuclear power plants.

The president of the Company yesterday announced his intention of resignation.

It is could be the beginning of a possible revelation of a vast scandal, wide and deep,that could shake all Japan.

The law of history that does not allow immorality to last long seems to be surfacing at long last.

With warmest regards,

Dear Fucetola-san,
I am sending you my message sent to President Thomas Bach of the International Olympic Committee.
Best wishes,
Dear  President Thomas Bach,
I hope you are in the best of health.
Please allow me to send you, herein attached, an important document which summarises
a book published in Japanese last month.
The title of the book is “Dangers to be Created by Tokyo Olympics—- Clear and Present Radioactivity and Health Damages”.  The book edits articles submitted by 25 scientists, directors, refugees from Fukushima, and opinion leaders. The first edition is already sold out.
We cannot but be recalled that “the Nuclear Emergency Declaration” decreed immediately after the Accident is still maintained.This is why radiation 20 times higher than before the Accident continues to be permitted, threatening public health.
In view of the undeniable presence of dangers,the Tokyo Olympic Games could not take place, morally speaking.
The honor of Japan is at stake. So is the honor of the Olympic Games.
I am convinced that you will redouble efforts to tackle with the present critical situation
faced by the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020 and the Olympic Games itself.
With warmest and highest regards,
Mitsuhei Murata
Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland

Introductory Summary — Etsuji Watanabe Nozomi Ishizu
To everybody who feels something dangerous about Tokyo 2020.
The book has been published in Japanese so Etsuji W atanabe and Nozomi Ishizu , the co-editors of the book, tried to overview it in English. We are very honored if you spread this this introductory summary introductory summary among your friends and supporters among your friends and supporters as widely as possible as widely as possible by by using any media.  In addition, you can use this full text or any part of this document you can use this full text or any part of this document freely as you like freely as you like for the purpose of warning against Tokyo 2020 for the purpose of warning against Tokyo 2020.
In about 100 months, the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics are scheduled to be held. This book is an urgent publication to warn people of Japan and the rest of the world against a grave danger of radiation exposure to be posed by the Tokyo Olympics. The main points of this book of this book are:
(1) To strongly urge the athletes, visitors and audiences who are planning to attend the
Tokyo Olympics never to trust any propaganda of the Japanese government claiming
that Fukushima and Tokyo ‘are 100% safe now’, ‘have no risk of radiation exposure’ or
‘radiation exposure won’t cause any health effects ,’ and the like.
(2) To request these people to recognize the real danger or risks of radiation exposure
from visiting Fukushima and Kanto regions including Tokyo even only for short stay s ,
and to reconsider their plans of attending the Tokyo Olympics.
(3) To prompt people , especially the international to pay attention to the
Japanese government’s cruel ties that, behind the large scale mass media propaganda
and construction extravagance for the Olympics the authorities are terminating all the
financial support for Fukushima evacuees and victims, economically forcing these
people to return to heavily contaminated areas with 20mSv/y ear (33mSv/y in reality),
leading to stochastic ‘mass murder Such a violent act by the authorities against the
people is equal to a crime against humanity comparable to war crime. Based on the
Japanese government risk factors, though greatly underestimated, the early death rate
f or returnees in lifetime is estimated at 5 15%
(4) To encourage people to understand the real picture of health damage spreading and
becoming more serious in Fukushima, Tokyo and all over Japan which we cannot help
but be convinced as irradiation related.
(5) To demand the Japanese government forfeit hosting the Tokyo Olympics, and to
urge the governments and sport associations of other countries to take potential
irradiation risks in Tokyo 2020 seriously and to refrain from sending their athletes to
the Tokyo Olympics.Main contents of this book are largely divided into two parts.  One is criticism from objective radiological and and medical science and specific radiation exposure situations in Tokyo. The other is is criticism from from the viewpoint of justice that Tokyo 2020 is against morals, humanity, democracy, and human rights.
Part One: Scientists, Doctors and Citizens Warning the Part One: Scientists, Doctors and Citizens Warning the Danger of the Danger of the Tokyo Olympics Tokyo Olympics
This part introduces various work of scientists, doctors and citizens who have been warning of the danger of the Tokyo Olympics and addressing their opinions to oppose Tokyo’s hosting the Olympics.
The book publishes for the first time the full Japanese text of the Open Letter to the International Olympics Committee (IOC) dated October 3, 2013 by Tetsu Kariya, the the original author of the famous manga series ‘Oishinbo’, translated by Nozomi Ishizu and Etsuji Watanabe. This document was one of the most important forerunners on this issue.
The book present the first statement by the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) Germany (translated by Yu Kajikawa), and introduces movements against irradiation in the Tokyo Olympics in Germany (the Tokyo Olympics in Germany (written written by by Shinobu Katsuragi and Yoko Yoko Kawasaki), and anti-Tokyo-Olympics actions in California, United States written by by Nozomi Ishizu.
Excerpts from the statement of statement of Hiroaki Koide (former assistant professor at the Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute) appear in this book, pointing out the risk of the Tokyo Olympics, with the introductory notes written by Norma Field (an emeritus professor at the University of Chicago).
Etsuji Watanabe summarizes an article “Atomic Balm” by Arnie Gundersen, a famous no-nuke activist in the United States.
This book book quotes an interview of Mitsuhei Murata, a former Japanese ambassador to Switzerland, who is actively involving in anti-Tokyo-Olympics-Paralympics movement,urgingthe Japanese government to relinquish hosting the Olympics.
Anti-radiation movements in Tokyo have started calling for a Japanese version of the  Chernobyl laws to be established.  Toshiko Okada , Chieko Yamada , and  Toshio Yanagihara (lawyer) explain why they are now fighting also against radiation exposure  in the Tokyo Olympics.
Kosaku Yamada (emeritus professor at the Kyoto University) writes about protest movements against the Japanese government’s plan to dump to the pacific ocean radioactive tritium-contaminated waste water accumulated in the the disaster-hit Fukushima nuclear plant..=
Eiichiro Ochiai (emeritus professor at the Juniata College of the United States, now resides in Canada) emphasizes ‘Invisible Threat’ of radiation in Japan  theoretically as theoretically as well based on his personal experiences.
Katsuma Yagasaki (emeritus professor at the University of Ryukyu) shows the reality of health damage with excessive deaths, approximately approximately 280 thousand, within a period of 7 years. He defines ‘No health damage’ campaign by the Japanese government as a symbol of the prime minister Abe’s fascism and and an integintegral part of  “unknown invisible nuclear wars” that have still been traging now.
Part Two: Reasons Enough to Conclude that Radiation Exposure in the Tokyo Olympics should be Dangerous
This part analyzes potential radiation risks that that the Tokyo Olympics pose to athletes, audiences and visitors coming from around the world. And we also objectively and scientifically clarify that the scale of the Fukushima nuclear accident and  its characteristic  severity will cause those athletes, audiences and visitors  too incur  serious radiation exposure  risks for the rest of their lives, even if they make short stays.
In this book Etsuji Watanabe asserts that considering the amount of radioactivity released by the Fukushima nuclear disaster reveals the real picture of the Tokyo 2020, which which is equivalent to Olympics held in the vicinities of Nevada nuclear nuclear test site or Cherrnobyl disaster site. It is also emphasized that micro-sized insoluble radioactive particles, characteristic of Fukushima disaster, discharged from the reactors melt-through entail   serious biological  danger of 500 times that of the external exposure, that only one small particle, say with 1Bq, breathed and deposited in one’s lung could cause lifetime threat to one’s health .

Tadashi Hongyo (professor at the Osaka University medical faculty) discusses how large individual differences in sensitivity to radiation large individual differences in sensitivity to radiation are, especially for children, young women, and those with specific genetic mutations.Etsuji Watanabe and and Kosaku Yamada argue multiplied dangers of tritium. Among others, organically bound tritiumAmong others, organically bound tritium (OBT) is 50-600 times more dangerous than external exposure or K40 (natural radioactivity) internal exposure.

This chapter presents many specific cases that show the real health damage caused by tritium.
Etsujsuji Watanabei examines the logic of the Fukushima nuclear accident’s ‘No’ health effects theory and its ‘selfe-destructive’’ nature. In order to prove its truth (i.e., total false), the theory intrinsically leads the government and ruling circle to expose as many people as possible including as famous people or celebrities, including emperor and empress, prime minister, ministers, politicians, and actresses, singers, news casters or others, to as large risk of irradiation as possible like visiting the devastated nuclear plant or highly contaminated areas without any protective clothing.
Tsuyoshi Fujioka (guest professor at the Osaka University of Economics and Law) tells  that that some parts of some parts of UNSCEAR reports which Japanese government quotes to justify to justify their ‘No health damage’ theory are absolutely nonfactual. He even suspects that those  contents used by the Japanese government to justify their Zero Health Effects theory could have been  inserted in exchange for financial support  from the Japanese the Japanese government.
In addition to micro-sized particles Koichi Oyama (councilor of Minamisoma city in Fukushima prefecture) discusses ‘black materials’ found on walls and ceilings of roomsor on the surface of public roads, possibly resulting from radioactivity’s radioactivity’s bio-accumulation and contamination cycles.
The article written by by Masaaki Suzuki makes it clear that radioactive contamination of city tap water  in Tokyo metropolitan area can be easily detected by using simple  zeolite water purifiers and the conditions are worsening (complemented by Yoko Yoko Shimosawa).
Koji Owada (former professor at the Kyoto Pharm University) discusses the real conditions of food contamination and accuses the danger and the moral responsibility for plan to cater Fukushima food extensively to those athletes to participate in the Tokyo Olympics.

Part Three Fukushima Disaster Radiation Exposure Effects Appearing in Reality, Health Damage to Evacuees from Fukushima and Kanto Regions Including Tokyo Region.This part covers a series of aserious health problems surfacing in Japan,especially in Tokyo and Fukushima, which we cannot help but conclude are caused by or related to radiation exposure from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, in other word radiation health damage.

This book also features stories of evacuees not only from Fukushima prefecture but also from Kanto regions who have been  experiencing health damage in reality.
Dr. Mita Shigeru, an evacuee from Tokyo area himself and a clinician who has been treating health problems of Fukushima evacuees, overviews “new hibakusha” ” patients conditions. He named the typical symptoms that many irradiated evacuees and victims are suffering from “declining abilities syndrome”, which shows  very similar symptoms to what late Dr. Shuntaro Hida called “burabura disease” typically found among Hiroshima/Nagasaki atomic-bomb-survivorssurvivors.
Etsuji Watanabe statistically analyzes official data of cancer registration and of special needs classes of schools, and finds the increases clear and undeniable in cancer onset  cases, specifically of radiologically sensitive leukemia and blood cancers, as well as in children’s developmental disorder cases.
The important research done by  SaitoSachiko is introduced  on urine inspection (radioactive cesium) to examine children’s cesium contamination in Fukushima and Kanto regions.
Evacuees from Fukushima and Tokyo areas speak up and reveal their experiences of evacuation including various symptoms which we cannot help but conclude are caused by radiation exposure.
