4.8 magnitude earthquake hits typhoon-ravaged Philippines

Philippines Nov 12
November 12, 2013 PHILIPPINES A 4.8 magnitude earthquake has hit the Philippines island of Bohol just days after a powerful typhoon left thousands dead in the Pacific nation. The quake’s epicenter was in the San Isidro municipality of the island province, according to a USGS report. It is located some 45 km from Tagbilaran, the provincial capital that has almost 100,000 residents. The tremor hit at the depth of about 70 km, according to early USGS estimates. The Philippines Institute of Volcanology and Seismology put the depth of the quake much less deep, at just 9 km. It said it was an aftershock of the 7.2 magnitude quake that hit the island on October 15. No immediate casualty or damage report is available. The authorities did not issue a tsunami alert following the quake. Last month’s quake killed 22 people and displaced tens of thousands. It also caused damage to more than 73,000 structures. Bohol Island is located just south of the path of devastation left behind by the powerful Typhoon Haiyan,  known locally as Typhoon Yolanda. The typhoon, which was the strongest to hit the country in decades, left an estimated 10,000 people killed and leveled thousands of homes. Philippines declared a state of national calamity as search and rescue operations continue. –RT

    Japan Physician: I hope adults will leave Tokyo, not just children — Strange things happening — Medications don’t seem to work — Rare diseases increasing dramatically (VIDEO)

    Dr. Shigeru Mita, Mita Clinic in Tokyo: Our patients mostly come from Tokyo, Chiba, Kanagawa, Saitama, and other Northern Kanto areas.

    The pediatricians’ general textbook says that reference value of neutrophil [the most abundant type of white blood cells, essential part of immune system] for healthy children (6-12 years old) is […] 4000, but it has shifted to 2500. It is lower than the threshold value of 3000. I think this points at a serious problem. […]

    In the summer of 2011, there were many children with bloodshot eyes; and what we saw most were children with dark circles under the eyes. […] we are seeing more cases of sinusitis accompanied with mild case of asthma continuing for longer periods. And when these children spend some time in the West, they get better. If at all possible, I would like them to move away from East Japan. […]

    […] radioactive substances coming from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have reached Tokyo, and huge amounts of contaminated waste is being burned here as well, I cannot deny the possibility that we are inhaling radioactive substances contained in the air. Again, let me repeat that after the nuclear accident, enormous amounts of nuclear substances were released in the environment. Therefore, if we see an increase in symptoms that are different from the ones we’ve seen before, we physicians should “first consider the effects of radioactivity.” […]
