However, a recent report has revealed that the number of kids from Fukushima diagnosed with thryoid cancer since they started testing them about a year after the disaster has risen another 6 to 18 kids. This is over a two year period. Comparing, in 2005 46 kids were diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I don't like these numbers. Admittedly they are screening a lot more, so cases that wouldn't have been detected for years are being detected earlier, but still..

I am probably repeating myself, but thyroid cancer comes from radioactive iodine, which has a half life of 8 days, so any cancer resulting from the disaster came from the first several days after the accident.

The news was not out in English last time I checked, but I am sure it soon will be.
