A doctor conducts a thyroid examination on a five-year-old girl as her older brother and a nurse take care of her at a clinic in a temporary housing complex in Nihonmatsu, west of the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Fukushima prefecture February 27, 2014. March 11 marks the third anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. In Koriyama, a short drive from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, the city recommended shortly after the disaster that children up to two years old not spend more than 15 minutes outside each day. Those aged 3 to 5 should limit their outdoor time to 30 minutes or less. The limits were lifted last year, but many kindergartens and nursery schools continue to obey them even now in line with the wishes of worried parents. An annual survey by the Fukushima prefecture Board of Education found that children in Fukushima weighed more than the national average in virtually every age group. The cause seems to be a lack of exercise and outdoor activity. Picture taken February 27, 2014. REUTERS/Toru Hanai (JAPAN - Tags: DISASTER EDUCATION ENVIRONMENT HEALTH TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

A doctor conducts a thyroid examination on four-year-old Maria Sakamoto, brought by her mother to the office of Iwaki Radiation Citizen Centre NPO, in Iwaki town, south of the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima prefecture September 18, 2013. The non-profit organization offers free thyroid examination for children from Fukushima area. As the World Health Organisation (WHO) says children in Fukushima may have a higher risk of developing thyroid cancer after the Daiichi nuclear disaster two years ago, mothers in Fukushima worry that local health authorities are not doing enough.

Topher Logan gives himself his bi-weekly injection of testosterone in his Brooklyn apartment
Topher Logan gives himself his bi-weekly injection of testosterone in his Brooklyn apartment, New York, February 18, 2007. Logan, 28, refers to himself as a "queer transman", meaning he was born as female, but identifies as a male and has relationships with women, men and other transgender people. He injects himself with testosterone, known as "T", twice a week in order to create and sustain traditionally masculine gender traits such as facial hair and a deeper voice. Two years ago he underwent a bilateral mastectomy, known as top surgery, to modify his chest. Logan believes in gender fluidity, and binary gender as a social construct.

A Ukrainian woman, who was exposed to radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant explosion, rests after her thyroid cancer was removed, in a hospital in Kiev April 6, 2006. Ukraine prepares to mark the 20th anniversary of the world's worst nuclear disaster on April 26 when a reactor at the Chernobyl power plant exploded, spreading a radioactive cloud across Europe and the Soviet Union. There was a dramatic increase in thyroid cancer among people living in the region and millions across Europe have suffered health problems, many of them children. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj
