Fear Of Radiation Treated as “Psychiatric Disorder” In Fukushima

•, Paul Joseph Watson
 Despite the fact that the Japanese government and TEPCO were caught red-handed underplaying the severity of the Fukushima nuclear crisis, a study has found that almost a quarter of Fukushima residents hospitalized in the aftermath of last year’s devastating earthquake and tsunami were treated as having a “psychiatric disorder” because of their concerns over radiation.
“Some 24.4 percent of people who were hospitalized in Fukushima with psychiatric disorders in the wake of the outbreak of the crisis at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant had done so possibly because of fears of radiation exposure, according to the results of research conducted by psychiatrists at Fukushima Medical University,” reports the Mainichi Daily News.

 While in Japan fear of radiation is treated as a "Psychiatric Disorder", here fear of anti-Government contamination is treated as a form of "mental illness" according to the National Institute of Health.
