Why didn't Fukushima cause way more diseases and deaths in Japan?

There was the earthquake but the toxic radiation?

Shouldn't it have caused degenerative diseases?

    The radiation that was released to the environment was not intense enough to cause immediate (acute) health problems. The longer-term impacts haven't really happened yet. Increased cancer rates over the next 30 years is probable, but we have to wait until the time passes to be able to show that.

    A pretty high dose of radiation is required to cause immediate effects.

    Sometimes these diseases take a decade or more to appear.  People are still dying of cancer in Nevada/Utah/New Mexico because of atomic tests that happened in the 50s!
