Dear all,

Thank you all for visiting, reading and sharing the news with me on the Fukushima Appeal Blog. I’ve kept it running since February 2012. Unfortunately, I will need some break now to attend to some of my health issues.

I would like to thank this blog and its supporters for giving me an opportunity to become a part of the slowly awakening global community during this very important time of global change. I had zero knowledge of nuclear before the Fukushima disaster, and was and still am a just normal citizen. It’s been hard to see Japan becoming a criminal, immoral and authoritarian country since the Fukushima Disaster. So it’s been a huge awakening and healing process to have a platform to speak out instead of feeling powerless, angry and sad about it. With the new secret law that is going to be introduced in Japan soon, Japanese people will need more help than at any other time in its history from foreign bloggers, doctors and scientists. Please remember Fukushima. I hope that the more difficulties we may encounter, the stronger and connected we will become to fight against injustice and be able to act from our heart space. (Mia)

日本の皆さん、がんばってください。 再稼動反対、子供を守れ! 1mSv/yの約束を守れ!

Wholebody counter has been used for cover-up for the danger of internal exposure - Prof. Katsuhiko Yagasaki of Ryukyus University WBCの高い検出限界値でND「内部被曝隠し」科学的粉飾 矢ケ崎教授 Part 2

Prof. Yagasaki explained how the urine sample is measured and calculated in his article in the below link.  Sorry I can't possibly translate them.  But I can comment that biological half life (different in children and adult) is taken into consideration when they are calculated.

*There is a report on urine test done by NGO-ACRO for 4 year old girl
(0.1Bq/litter, equivalent to 6 Bq)

- Semptember, 2011
1st test: Cesium 4.64Bq/litter was detected.

- April, 2012  
2nd test: C134 no detection (detection limit 0.082Bq/L)   C137 0.090Bq/litter (detection limit 0.081)

(Editor's note) Because the detection limit is very low, they can detect sign of illness before it get too late.  Also it's useful to know what works the best to minimize the danger.
As far as I know Wholebody counter (Fujitsu) the Fukushima Health Survey was using before cost 50,000,000yen (=$500,000).  I heard that now they use the one called "Fast Scan" - CANBERRA
Detection limit 300Bq/kg for C134 and C137
Length of measurement is 2-5min.

It was used to be Cs-134: 320Bq, Cs-137: 570Bq when 109 residents were measured as of July 2011.

I would like to share this piece of information from the comment in for my part 1 article. Chernobyl Children Fukushima Children | July 13, 2013

"Phoswich Detectors in Partial body counter can measure internal emitters such as Americium 241 (decay prodcut of Plutonium 241), Uranium 235 and Plutonium 239, these are low-energy measurements. Measuring takes usually 35 Minutes. Costs: 400 – 500+ USD.
Here is more information on wholebody counter.

1."A typical detection limit of radoactive cesum is about 40Bq"
2."count times can be from 1 minute to about 30 minutes"

WBC test has been offered to children under 18 years old free in Fukushima.  So they tend to go there instead of private ones that they have to pay. It seems that in Japan WBC has been used in the way that they could test the residents as fast and efficient as possible and give low detection result in order to give the residents comfort but not really warning the danger.
I wanted to share Prof. Yazasaki's view on wholebody counter and urine test (as well as other information I gathered in Japanese website because in the west Prof. Hayano's work (at Hirata central hospital)using WBC's test'result seems to get acknowledged. For example his study was used in Ian Fairlie's lecture at New York symposium in March this year.

*Prof.Hayano said "No children were exposed to internal radiation" but now 27 children developed thyroid cancer!
