» The result of thyroid tests revealed by the effort of NPO

The NPO Access-Info Clearinghouse Japan demanded the release of the data of ultrasound tests conducted in 2011. The result was put together in April 2012 by Fukushima Medical University. Although the NPO asked the release of the results in December 2012, the Fukushima prefectural  government had tried to reject the request in the beginning,  insisting that making the results public would be an invasion of privacy.However, under a prefectural  ordinance on the release of information to the public, the data did not qualify to be withheld, forcing the prefectural government to release it.
