Is Japan blocking citizen access to radiation info? China, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Nepal, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Poland, etc. visit this site. Almost no readers ever from Japan. This is deeply concerning.

Thyroids and Testicles of California Babies, affected in the womb by Fukushima Fallout. California tests all babies for congenital hypothyroidism. Data compared with Chernobyl disaster. Article will appear in next week's peer-reviewed journal Open Journal of Pediatrics:
Update 24 July 2013:
"The reality of the Fukushima disaster is that it WAS a worst-case-scenario for reactors 1-4. Consider the loss of electrical power for weeks on end and the initial ‘Plan B’ type of ‘water-cannon-concrete-truck’ cooling system response that NRC officials said was all but useless. How does it get worse than no cooling and no power for weeks?
If one considers the source terms and length of emissions that a true ‘worst-case-scenario’ would represent, it is easy to understand why the NRC and DOE had to downplay, delay and purposefully bungle the modeling of the radioactive plume and fallout. As a result President Obama was able make the statement that experts did not expect harmful levels of radioactivity to reach the U.S. and thus there were no warnings or alerts issued for American citizens. Meanwhile, other countries as far away as France, did issue rainwater warnings and green leafy vegetable warnings as well.
'At the end of the day the simple fact remains: the truth about Fukushima (especially as revealed in the NRC FOIA documents) and nuclear power cannot coexist. Until the day of the fateful earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the establishment had been effective at suppressing the truth about the nuclear industry, even after Chernobyl. But now the size and scope of the effects of Fukushima make it impossible to ignore that truth any longer...."
Tactics used to downplay modeling/sampling:
But what if it's not reported?
What if the news services fail to mention lethal Geiger counter readings at the reactors, now, beyond the range of the instruments?
It rains a lot in Seattle, and the US government has been running tests forJet-Streamed Japan radiation, hinting that results may be withheld.
A matter of "national security."
"The west coast of North America is thousands of miles across the vast Pacific Ocean, a long way from Fukushima Daiichi and the radioactive solids, liquids, and gases being released daily and recklessly to poison both near and far. Already we are seeing the effects in North America.
“Air filters from cars in Seattle have been analyzed for hot particles and indicate that Seattle residents are inhaling 5 hot particles a day, in Tokyo it is 10 hot particles a day, in Fukushima Prefecture it is 30-40 times higher - 300-400 hot particles a day.
“Hot particles and alpha emitters such as Uranium and Plutonium have not even been mentioned by the government or TEPCO...
"People on the west coast of the United States and even in Arizona are reporting a metallic taste in their mouths – an indication of radioactive particles in the air as in Japan.
The Japanese government fails to warn but does mobilize to threaten, with a new law criminalizing citizen reportage.
Corporate-control of government makes nuke-fools of us all.
Cesium-contaminated beef has been fed to school children and to passengers on the bullet train. For a week. The government then did after-the-fact recall.
More radioactive beef is turning up. It's not rocket science; it is animal husbandry--the fodder is contaminated.
