Tokyo, Sep 22: The Japan health ministry has decided that workers engaged in crisis control at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant should be screened for cancer every year for free from fiscal 2012 if they have been exposed to accumulated radiation of over 100 millisieverts.

The ministry's decision is based on a draft report by its panel which has been debating the long-term effects on the health of the Fukushima plant workers.
