Scientists: Trees Near Fukushima Have Mutated, People May Be Next

Scientists in Japan say that 90% of the trees surrounding the Fukushima nuclear power plant have mutated as a result of the nuclear disaster

Japanese scientists have revealed that up to 90% of fir trees in forests surrounding the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant show signs of mutations and abnormality. 

Insects sampled in a town over 50 kilometers from the disaster zone also showed signs of having deformed or missing legs.

Scientists are said to be worried that these deformities are a precursor to what is in store for the Japanese people.

Nsnbc.me reports:

Japanese scientists are reluctant to comment on the record. Several attempts by nsnbc to reach out resulted in off-protocol confirmations of suspicions and references to Japanese law that makes revealing of unauthorized information about the Fukushima disaster a criminal offense that can be punishable with up to ten years in prison.

The official line is that Japanese scientists are trying to figure out whether there is a causal relation between the wave of mutations and the still ongoing release of radiation and radionucleides into the environment. Studies focus primarily on hos radioactive cesium spread in forests and forest soil after the catastrophic triple meltdown at the TEPCO operated Fukushima Daiichi NPP after it was struck by an earthquake and a subsequent tsunami in 2011.

Results of a 2013 study already revealed that levels of the radioactive isotope cesium from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant in northern Japanese forests had almost doubled within one year and that it will continue increasing as the forests bioaccumulate the isotope. The 2013 study and ongoing studies have major ramifications even though these studies largely ignore a cohort of other, potentially more dangerous isotopes such as plutonium.

The wave of mutations in insects, fir trees and other animals is according to Japanese experts who are relutant to speak on the record a precursor for what populations who live within a 100 km radius of the crippled power-plant can expect to see in human populations. The Japanese government’s push for resettling populations that were evacuated to so-called de-contaminated villages and towns is particularly problematic and controversial.

  1. I find it really hard to believe that there has been any physical evidence up til now… What have they been explaining it away as?
