[…] Dr. Suzuki who has been running the Health Survey along with Dr. Yamashita […] claimed it is unlikely thyroid cancer rates would rise and that the results found so far where over 43% of children had abnormalities were “ordinary”. […]

Over 43% of the children with abnormalities is quite different from the 1.6% or less of children in the Nagasaki study.
Suzuki has also held the opinion that thyroid cancers won’t show up for 4 or more years citing Chernobyl.
This conflicts with Suzuki’s claim that is it unlikely cancer rates would rise.
Further evidence shows thyroid damage was actually occurring right after Chernobyl, it just took years for studies to actually be done. […]

Ian Thomas Ash has been producing a serial documentary series on life after the Fukushima disaster. In his most recent filming he has been interviewing parents in Fukushima City and Date City.
