On 2/19/2013, the analyzing team of NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) suggested the proposal to discontinue thyroid test for Fukushima children.
Originally it was planned to test their thyroid for the rest of the lives of children who were 18 y.o when 311 took place.
However, the proposal is to cancel the thyroid test of children who were not exposed in high level or living in less contaminated areas. The reason is not stated.
At this moment, 3 children were diagnosed to have thyroid cancer and 7 more children may have thyroid cancer for 80% of possibility.
