TEPCO's Press Conference: Yoshida Has Esophagus Cancer

TEPCO is disclosing the condition of Masao Yoshida, ex-plant manager of Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, at the request of Yoshida.

Illness: Esophagus cancer
Cumulative radiation exposure (internal and external) since March 11: 70 millisieverts

The live feed was cut off at Yasumi Iwakami's channel. Will try TEPCO's live feed if it's there..

TEPCO's press room is near-empty. And the short presser is over now.

Thank you for posting this. I feel sorry for him and his family.

On a side note, a Yahoo Japan story is states that Tepco is saying radiation exposure is not related. That was quick.

Everyone knows Tepco is lying. No one at all believes that bullshit.

Of course it is not related to radiation exposure. Unless people drop dead in an instant acute radiation poisoning, it is not related to radiation exposure at all.

Fuck. And the executives are fine. Not fair.

So they have said, in numerous reports,interviews and studies with/from professors in the nuke field that any amount of radiation is NOT dangerous. Can anyone now explain why people are dropping off like flies caught in a window trying to get out!? We need to fix this problem fast it is killing the planet, take off your pride before its too late!!!

How old is he? Is he a smoker?

He is 56, and yes he seem to be a smoker. He was known for supplying workers free cigarettes.

He was also known for shouting at and fighting the TEPCO headquarter people in the teleconference.

Sad to say he would not live long. Unless he speaks like a canary soon,he will soon be forgotten and added as a statistic. Such as a pawn in a large corporation.

Singing like a canary will garner some global respect in his name at least. It must have crossed his mind.

this has nothing to do with fukishima..
this is 100% about negativity all recent studies at the tepco hospital for health and happiness suggest that worry and negativity kill more than health giving radiation.
people need to be happy and embrace plutonium and strontium.
tepco are the world leaders in radiation vitamin happy therapy a treatment that has already spread around the world.
