For those individuals that didn’t know about Shigeki Imamoto and what he really thought about the Fukushima left behind animals. He did go on tour talking about the Fukushima animals, but that was specifically set up for him to do that. When you look at those videos that he took, didn’t you wonder what he did OTHER THAN TAKE PICTURES? That was part of his job, to count animals NOT TO SAVE THEM. He collected money for the animals but where did that money go?
6HC: In your opinion, what are the radiation levels inside the 20km zone and have you seen any mutations in animals because of certain radiation levels? We understand you study genetics and associated diseases.
“Fortunately because we were not allowed to rescue, there are many new born cows and pigs in the exclusion zone. So far we do not have reports on mutations from the effects of radiation. It was a mistake that we did not start doing research from the beginning. However if I could do more research, I would like to do continue researching radiation and genetic mutations. Some genomes would be damaged by radiation. However depending on the damaged location the effect would differ. So far I have not seen any animals whose genomes are so critically damaged.”
