The fifth anniversary of the Fukushima disaster was on Friday, March 11. Since that fateful day in 2011, the Japanese government and the United States have continued to deny the lingering effects of this catastrophic event.

However, the 8,000 deaths and the mutated wildlife are proving hard to cover up — thanks to the power of social media.

Last year, Japanese Twitter user @san_kaido posted a photo of mutated daisies near the Fukushima site. Originally thought to be photoshopped, the daisies were confirmed by numerous visitors.

But the daisies are only a portion of the bizarre effects of the nuclear radiation on local wildlife. Thanks to the power of social media, individuals have been using their photos to expose the harmful effects of the disaster, which government claims is nothing to worry about.

Below is a collection of images from Japan that are absolutely mindblowing.

Fukushima Plant Mutations

But it’s not just the plants that are affected by the leaking radiation. Shortly after the earthquake, animals were found with mutations. Video of a mutant bunny with no ears quickly went viral when it originally surfaced.
