A new report out of TEPCO and the various parties involved in decommissioning documents that 15 workers from Fukushima Daiichi have developed cancer. These cancers are considered sufficiently linked to their work at the plant during the initial disaster and the subsequent effort to manage the site.
8 workers have developed leukemia.
5 workers have developed malignant lymphoma
2 workers have multiple myeloma
These counts would not include any of the other response workers such as SDF or Tokyo Fire Department workers who also responded to the disaster at the plant.
