Months ago I posted a video from a distinguished, very senior Japanese doctor about the effects of radiation and the cover-up of the Fukushima disaster.
An Australian blogger, Australian Cannoball, had posted the video here
Today, although multiple listings appear for Australian Cannonball, I am unable to access the site on any of my web browsers.

[excerpted]"Internal radiation exposure has been around since the Hiroshima/Nagasaki days," said 95-year-old doctor Shuntaro Hida. He has treated over 6,000 patients with bura-bura disease, a kind of fatigue seen among A-bomb survivors, and is himself a survivor of the Hiroshima bombing. His voice carried well inside the Yokohama auditorium where he was giving a lecture titled "The Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant Incident and Internal Radiation Exposure."
"People who weren't in Hiroshima or Nagasaki when the bombs fell, but went there a few days later searching for family members died mysteriously," he said. Though Hida usually walks with a cane, his speech was an impassioned one that he gave for two hours on his feet....
