Small head size and delayed body weight growth in wild Japanese monkey fetuses after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster Shin-ichi Hayama1, Moe Tsuchiya1, Kazuhiko Ochiai1, Sachie Nakiri1, Setsuko Nakanishi2, Naomi Ishii1, Takuya Kato 1, Aki Tanaka1, Fumiharu Konno3, Yoshi Kawamoto4 & Toshinori Omi1

To evaluate the biological effect of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, relative differences in the growth of wild Japanese monkeys (Macaca fuscata) were measured before and after the disaster of 2011 in Fukushima City, which is approximately 70 km from the nuclear power plant, by performing external measurements on fetuses collected from 2008 to 2016. Comparing the relative growth of 31 fetuses conceived prior to the disaster and 31 fetuses conceived after the disaster in terms of body weight and head size (product of the occipital frontal diameter and biparietal diameter) to crown-rump length ratio revealed that body weight growth rate and proportional head size were significantly lower in fetuses conceived after the disaster. No significant difference was observed in nutritional indicators for the fetuses’ mothers. Accordingly, radiation exposure could be one factor contributed to the observed growth delay in this study.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5471234/pdf/41598_2017_Article_3866.pdf

IF THESE MONKEYS WERE FOOD THE LEVELS OF RADIATION WOULD BE CONSIDERED ACCEPTABLE FOR EATING BY THE US GOVERNMENT BUT NOT BY JAPAN. THE US ALLOWS UP TO 1200 BQ/KG OF RADIOACTIVE CESIUM IN FOOD. THAT SHOULD GIVE AN IDEA OF WHAT HIGH LEVELS OF RADIATION ARE ALLOWED IN US FOOD AND A BIG DANGER OF THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP WHICH TRUMP NOW WANTS TO REVIVE. https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2014/07/29/fukushima-monkeys-radiation-impacts-on-immune-system-and-health/

Apparently the monkeys were cruelly killed not because they were highly contaminated with radioactive materials but because they ate farmers crops!
