WHY FUKUSHIMA NEEDS OUR HELP
During the radioactive incident in Fukushima dangerous radioactive elements such as iodine and cesium were released into the Fukushima community. These elements found their way into the soil and water and can result in skin damage, thyroid damage, cancer, and death.
The people most at risk for these effects are the children and after the disaster in Fukushima the numbers of thyroid cancer cases in children under the age of 18 has drastically increased.
Furthermore, the emotional effects of this disaster and the tsunami in 2011 have resulted in great amounts of suicides caused by mental stress, despair, anxiety, and depression.
