W wyniku katastrofy jądrowej w Fukushimie dużo substancji radioaktywnych dostało się do środowiska. Wykres zawiera dokumentację mutacji genetycznych, jakie zaszły u jednego z gatunków motyli w różnych częściach Japonii.

Poniższe zdjęcie przedstawia cykadę, która ma odnóże wyrastające z głowy. Podobna sytuacja miała miejsce po katastrofie czarnobylskiej.

The collapse of the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant caused a massive release of radioactive materials to the environment. A prompt and reliable system for evaluating the biological impacts of this accident on animals has not been available. Here we show that the accident caused physiological and genetic damage to the pale grass blue Zizeeria maha, a common lycaenid butterfly in Japan. We collected the first-voltine adults in the Fukushima area in May 2011, some of which showed relatively mild abnormalities. The F1 offspring from the first-voltine females showed more severe abnormalities, which were inherited by the F2 generation. Adult butterflies collected in September 2011 showed more severe abnormalities than those collected in May. Similar abnormalities were experimentally reproduced in individuals from a non-contaminated area by external and internal low-dose exposures. We conclude that artificial radionuclides from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant caused physiological and genetic damage to this species.

Japan Times column on nuclear mutations: Professor seeing ‘increase in negative effects’ from Fukushima since last year — Report of insect with leg growing from head (PHOTO)

see the leg growing out of the head in the pic to the left? these are the same kind of mutations that happened after Chernobyl. just more evidence of the irreversible damage fukushima and its mega nuclear radiation releases are starting to do to DNA.
