Fukushima study links children's cancer to nuclear accident

A doctor examines the thyroid of a child at a temporary housing complex in Nihonmatsu, about 31 miles from the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in 2013. 

The study claims rates of thyroid cancer are high for children who lived near the tsunami-crippled nuclear plant in Japan. But other scientists are skeptical of the findings.
