In-Utero Survivor: Hiroshima
©2013. Darrin Lee www.darrinleejournalism.wordpress.com In-Utero Survivor: Hiroshima, Japan. 05/16/13-05/19/13 Mito Kosei http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/mitokosei/26522134.html http://blog.livedoor.jp/mitokosei/ email@example.com My birthday is 1946 January 22nd and my mother four months pregnant with me entering on August 9th, three days after the bombing. There are four classes [of survivors]. I belong to the fourth class. My mother, second. My father was three kilometers from here and my grandfather 600 meters from here so they belong to the first class. All over Japan 200,000 survivors have this certificate, but there are many others who cannot get this because of the strict rules because we don't have to pay a portion of medical expenses by having this certificate. It means every government is very stingy. They don't want to spend so much money on the victims like us. All of the visitors ask me how long the dangerous radiation remained on the ground. The information you can get in the museum: only this. Can you believe this? This is not science... Politics. Scientifically, this is half true and half false. There are two kinds of residual radiation. This is expressive induced radiation. Induced radiation fades away. This is half true, but the other most dangerous one and its danger lasts for a very long time is this fall out or 'death ash'. This is happening in Fukushima and happened in Chernobyl and the Yucatan site. You can see these pictures of young soldiers in the museum. They both developed this very typical active symptom, called 'spots of death' because of initial radiation and they died on the same day within one month. [The museum mentions] only diarrhea, no words for cancer nor leukemia and no words for internal exposure. The Japanese government wants to ignore the effects caused by residual radiation and especially internal exposure, that's why. -30- Thanks: Ami David Sang Hyun Hye Rim Han Jennifer Kalvenas Kaede Kitayama Lorraine Lin Mayu Mito Kosei Sebastien Veldman Vicky Lin Yaya Hsu Ying Zhi Chen Yuki Komori The Memories!
