The International Journal of Health Services has released data in December 2011 from a newly released FUKUSIMA disaster study showing a high probability of extreme toxic radiation exposure within the United States possibly causing a 14,000 spike in morbidity rates as compared to the previous year.
The report located at http://www.radiation.org/reading/pubs/HS42_1F.pdf and released on December 19, 2011 is significant in signaling exposure to vegetables, milk, and the entire Pacific food chain.Levels of Iodine-131 are significant and data shows that those most affected are babies, as their growth processes are conducive to susceptibility to the radiation. The study exposes the distortion of details of the dangers having been caused by the Fukushima. It is too early to determine how extreme the exposure levels are.
In the United States, Fukushima fallout arrived just six days after the earthquake, tsunami, and meltdowns. Some samples of radioactivity in precipitation, air, water, and milk, taken by the U.S. government, showed levels hundreds of times above normal; however, the small number of samples prohibits any credible analysis of temporal trends and spatial comparisons.
Recent press release:WASHINGTON, D.C. – December 19, 2011 — An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, according to a major new article in the December 2011 edition of the International Journal of Health Services. This is the first peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal documenting the health hazards of Fukushima.

A recent live audio interview with Joseph J. Mangano and Janette D. Sherman opens the door for further scientific inquiry. The interview welcomed the scientific community to call in with questions / comments. Certainly worth the listening, scientists around the country are majorly concerned of the blackout of information being given to the American / Canadian population. Concern of oceanic contamination along with plant crops and grazing land exposure is discussed. Here is the audio.
