The aftermath of the tsunami that ransacked the Japanese coast led to
one of the worst nuclear meltdowns in the history of the world. Now,
two researchers believe it may also have played some role in killing
tens of thousands of Americans.
“[It’s] 155,000 deaths,” Joseph Mangano said, ”so we’re not talking about an increase from three to five deaths. We’re talking about quite a few.”
Mangano works at the Radiation and Public Health Project. The report he co-authored for a medical journal suggesting a link between Fukushima fallout and an increase in deaths in the United States has stirred up some controversy.
But Mangano said his critics miss the point.
“We have not stated conclusively that Fukushima fallout killed 22,000 Americans,” he said.
