"Even the Soviet Union, whose economy had collapsed, gave health tests to every single person using one-fourth of the national budget."
"Our parents gave us our lives. God gave us our lives. the government didn't give us our lives. Then why do we have to obey the government."
Mirroring here a must-watch video of Mika Noro's discourse in the streets of Tokyo. Mika Noro has been working in solidarity with the children affected by Chernobyl in Belarus and knows well what is going on in Japan after the Fukushima catastrophe, in spite of government denial and media silence.
She said that most doctors don’t know how to treat patients with radiation sickness. Antibiotics don’t cure the symptoms. She suggests that such patients need to stop taking any radioactively polluted food and drink, eat food full of enzymes such as fermented foods like miso and pickles, and fresh fruit such as bananas and apples, to help to repair the DNA damaged by ionizing radiation, keep up a healthy immune system in the body and also rest if they get tired easily. Ideally they should be evacuated into a safe area, but if they can’t, at least they should regularly be taken somewhere safe for some time to give their bodies a chance to repair the damaged DNA.

The parents whose children has been suffering from various illnesses found her advice really helpful. Ms. Noro reported that some weaker children first got nosebleeds and diarrhea two months after the disaster, then some children who were normally fine started to present the same symptoms. These were followed by other symptoms such as lack of concentration and appropriate body weight gain, getting tired easily, forgetting things, and having difficulty understanding school lessons. This has been happening not just with children in Fukushima, but also with some children in the Kanto area, including Tokyo.
Ms. Noro predicts serious consequences in the future if children are kept in the contaminated area for longer periods. Ms. Noro has suggested that all the children in the affected area should receive a blood test and an echo cardiography examination twice a year todetect signs of illness at the earliest stage. She warns that children living in Fukushima need to be evacuated as soon as possible before it is too late.
