Sailors sue Tepco for lying about radiation exposure - local media does subtle spinSubmitted by fishyculture on Mon, 12/31/2012 - 08:59
Here is what I find interesting about this clip. The video has a blip when each of the sailors describes symptoms. The blip happens right when one of them makes a comment about her thyroid - which would also contribute her weight problems. Instead, they leave the impression she is merely complaining about digestive issues. This is significant to me, as thyroid disease is a well known radiation risk and that word is kept from public ears. Additionally, one is left thinking she is just overweight and blaming radiation, and as a society it is OK to hate / blame overweight people. In the text, the media actually blames the thyroid issues on the weight issues - medical facts be damned.
