Fukushima health effects in America?

Nice job checking out these claims, isn't it? Sadly, you can't trust the news media to do any fact-checking at all. Journalism these days is just reporting what some guy says - and the wilder the claim, the better.

I've said it before, but this is why you look for the scientific consensus. Even if these were valid studies, they would have to be confirmed by other researchers before being taken seriously. Instead, they got a lot of attention - which was exactly what these anti-nuclear activists and the media both wanted - while apparently being a complete load of crap.

Wasn't the Fukushima nuclear disaster bad enough without making up stuff about it?
