Fukushima Daiichi power plant disaster: how many people were affected? 2015 Report

Source(s):  Green Cross International (GCI)

This report on the 2015 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster aims to compile information that will help in understanding as fully as possible the impact of the disaster, more specifically, the number of people in Japan who have been negatively impacted by the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant. These are individuals who were exposed to radiation or other stress factors resulting from the accident and are consequently at potential risk from long-term and short-term consequences of these exposures. In this context, “being affected” was interpreted the same way as in the 2012 Chernobyl study.

Based on these criteria, approximately 32 million people in Japan are affected by the radioactive fallout from the nuclear disaster in Fukushima. Direct impacts found were death and radiation exposure with both cancer non-cancer health effects. The report utilized a systematic approach to run multiple queries in the search engines Google, Google Scholar, and PubMed for relevant references within websites and various reports and articles, which were subsequently analysed.
