NEW YORK - Feb. 9, 2019 - PRLog -- The nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan, unleashed the largest amount of radioactive material ever discharged into the ocean in history. Worse, it continues to this very day.
Now that the 2020 Olympics Games are headed to Tokyo and will feature baseball and softball to be played in Fukushima at the Azuma Stadium, how will visitors be kept safe? What's the risk? Since health complications from radiation exposure show up years later, who will be willing to take risks? And can official sources saying "everything is fine" be trusted?
One author definitely doesn't think so. In his new book, Fukushima 311, Col. Walter T. Richmond looks at Japan's Fukushima nuclear disaster that began on March 11, 2011 – now infamously known as "311" – and which continues to this very day.
Col. Richmond noted that "Every day, citizen-scientists in Japan are taking readings and discovering unsafe radioactive levels all over the Fukushima region and far beyond. Thyroid cancer levels have spiked. Yet no one is raising any major alarms. Why is that?"
While many apologists have explained the high thyroid cancer rates as a result of aggressively looking for thyroid cancer, the author thinks there is more to the story - behind the scenes.
According to Richmond, "It's a money thing. Radiation is bad for business and bad for tourism. Maybe the Japanese government is simply hoping that everything will blow over and the 2020 Olympics, which is a critical economic and morale booster, will overshadow any concerns." The author added that "Since health effects and cancers from nuclear radiation exposure can take years to manifest, chances are people won't get sick immediately, if ever. But why would anyone roll the dice on their health? The research we did for this book paints a very disturbing radioactive picture compared to the marketing hype coming out of Japan."
Asked if he would go if he got an all-expenses-paid luxury trip to attend the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and the baseball games in Fukushima, Richmond said simply, "Hell no!"
