We've got researchers talking about defects in animals, and they're not allowed to publish their data,” says Gundersen, in response to recent comments made by the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, that there are no health concerns and people have nothing to worry about. The PM’s remarks came shortly after Japan won the bid to host the 2020 Olympic Games.
