Latest Findings of Thyroid Cancer After the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Accident this article and information is taken in Jan. 2018.
I have been on my own journey with thyroid issues for three years now with little progress, unless we count total removal as progress. I have been on most of the typical scripts all T4 however, until now i am on Nature-Throid and doing well. I must say the past two scripts have been a challenge most RX are out or out of stock of my strength. Finally found something that works and this issue, (yes i could put on my tin foil hat and develop a new conspiracy theory but another day).
All this said to draw attention to what i think is a crushing ave of thyroid problems just at the door step from Fukashima, yes that Japanese place that everybody this is "nothing to see here keep moving along" This chart above should be an eye opener, I have included the article below in its entirety so you can determine what you think.
The increase in risk for late-onset thyroid cancer due to radiation exposure is a potential health effect after a nuclear power plant accident mainly due to the release of radioiodine in fallout. The risk is particularly elevated in those exposed during infancy and adolescence. To estimate the possibility and extent of thyroid cancer occurrence after exposure, it is of utmost importance to collect and analyze epidemiological information providing the basis for evaluation of radiation risk, and to consider radiobiology and molecular genetics. In this regard, the dose-response of cancer risk, temporal changes in the rates of thyroid cancer, its histopathological types and subtypes, and frequency of underlying genetic abnormalities are important. At present, however, it is difficult or impossible to distinguish radiation-induced thyroid cancer from spontaneous/sporadic thyroid cancer because molecular radiation signatures, bio markers of radiation exposure, or genetic factors specific to radiation-induced cancer have not yet been identified. The large-scale ultrasound screening in Fukushima Prefecture of Japan demonstrated a high detection rate of thyroid cancer in young individuals, revealing 116 and 71 cases in the first and second rounds, respectively, among the same cohort of approximately 300,000 subjects. These findings raised concerns among residents and the public that it might be due to putative exposure to radiation from the accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. This review summarizes evaluations by international organizations and reviews scientific publications by the authors and others on childhood thyroid cancer, especially those relevant to radiation, including basic studies on molecular mechanisms of thyroid carcinogenesis. Clinical details are also provided on surgical cases in Fukushima Prefecture, and the effect of thyroid ultrasound screening is discussed. Correct understanding of issues relating to radiation and the thyroid are essential for interpretation of thyroid cancer in Fukushima. *PubMed.gov

Fukushima’s Nuclear Imprint Is Found in California Wine
Ever since a huge earthquake off the coast of Japan sent a tsunami crashing into a nuclear plant in Fukushima, setting off one of the world’s worst nuclear crises, scientists have been uncovering the radioactive legacy of the 2011 disaster.
The government warned about contaminated seafood around Japan, and toxic water, sludge and rubble. More frighteningly, radioactive wild boars marauded Japanese towns and attacked people.
Now a group of French nuclear physicists say they have stumbled on Fukushima’s signature in Northern California wine. (No, it’s not believed to be dangerous — more on that later.)
In a new study, the researchers report testing 18 bottles of California rosé and cabernet sauvignon from 2009 onward and finding increased levels of radioactive particles in the wine produced after the Fukushima disaster. In the case of the cabernet, the levels of the radioactive materials doubled.
