Why Is Thyroid Cancer America’s Fastest-Growing Cancer?


by HILLARY EATON  Last Updated: Dec 07, 2016


With more than 14 million people living with cancer in the U.S.today and over 1.6 million new cancer cases diagnosed yearly, it’s safe to say that you or someone you know has had a brush with cancer. Though cancer death rates have been in steady decline in the U.S., there is one form that is on a startling rise: thyroid cancer….

What Exactly Is Thyroid Cancer?
The thyroid, a butterfly-shaped gland located in the front part of the neck, is responsible for producing thyroid hormones from iodine in the blood. These hormones affect your metabolism rate, which means they influence how fast or slow your brain, heart, muscles and liver work. So, yeah: They’re kind of important.
According to the American Cancer Association, thyroid cancer occurs when the cells in the thyroid gland begin to grow out of control. When normal thyroid cells grow old or get damaged, they die and new cells take their place.
The National Cancer Institute explains that when this process goes wrong, new cells form when the body does not need them and old or damaged cells do not die as they should. That leads to a buildup of extra cells that form a mass of tissue called a nodule — aka a growth or tumor…

…Why IS Thyroid Cancer on the Rise?

Gary Bloom, executive director of ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association, Inc., tells us: “Medical professionals largely attribute the increase in thyroid cancer diagnoses to better imaging techniques, which has led to the discovery of many more micropapillary thyroid cancers — very small tumors that are usually less than 1 centimeter in size. However, some of the increase seems to have been in larger tumors, which is unrelated to better imaging.”
So is it overdiagnosis rather than an actual epidemic? According to a report published in JAMA, thyroid cancer has long been a common find during autopsies, despite never having caused symptoms during a patient’s life, indicating that nodules are extraordinarily common….
…Overall, there is not enough evidence to definitively explain why thyroid cancer is on the rise in America— whether it is due to overdiagnosis or something else.
Can You Protect Yourself Against Thyroid Cancer?
Bloom says that the best thing to do is avoid radiation at all costs. “It is important to limit exposure to head and neck radiation. For most people, the only exposure to radiation will be dental X-rays.” While this exposure is generally very limited, request a neck shield in addition to the chest shield that is usually provided.

Fukushima’s radioactive waste accumulated in Chiba is carried in the reclaimed land of Henoko of Okinawa by a transportation route via Fukuoka.

Because Secretary of Defense Ash Carter declared that the United States would support the Abe Administration thoroughly, the U. S. Government and Japanese Government should split that fee of compensation for damages fifty-fifty to pay to Okinawa about landfill of the radioactive waste.

I must judge Prime Minister Abe is the evil person who is going to build the reign of terror which is still not different from the Nazis.Oh yes…

President Obama must not mistake to choose the person whom you should believe now.
As substitute land of the Futenma base,Japan and the United States should build the new base in Nozakijima island which is the uninhabited island at the offshore of Hirado city of Nagasaki prefecture rather than reclaiming the foreshore from the sea of Henoko of Okinawa with Fukushima’s radioactive waste.
The Japanese Government should build the long bridge from Hirado-city of Nagasaki prefecture to the Nozakijima Island. There is the dam of abundant water resources in the Nozakijima Island, and many deer propagate.
The fact that Abe Administration use Fukushima’s radioactive waste for reclaiming the foreshore from the sea of Henoko of Okinawa will be criticized from all over the world.
In this situation U. S. soldiers in New base of Henoko are exposed to radiation, too, and U. S. soldiers will die of the cancer like Fukushima citizens.
Prime Minister Abe conflicts with Crimes against humanity.

And it begins. Fukushima children forced to relocate are now speaking out as they are outcasted and bullied.


It is that same phenomena that occurred after the WWII bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki… people from the afflicted areas were shunned by the general populations for many years as being, (in Western terms), unclean/tainted or ‘soiled’.
There is a great deal of evidence (although oblique) that this is evidenced in science as a fact:
When a person is carrying a ‘hot’ particle, it can induce symptoms in others. Perhaps this anomaly is why certain collective groups shy away from said victims (much like leprosy).
In todays news in Australia, a child victim of Fukushima, spoke out about bullying, embarrassment and harassment , not dissimilar to the same toward victims after World War Two, propagated by the rest of their new societies.
Bullies coerced him, he said, into paying over fees that were meant for school purchases, full well knowing they were victim fees, as stated in the report.
Moreover? These instances are so prevalent, against the relocated Fukushima peoples and children, that the Government of Japan has just only now opened an inquiry as to who they will deal with this deeply rooted and complex problem.
