There are errors in the values for LARS for thyroid cancer throughout the paper. Please see below for a description of the errors and their corrections.

There are errors in the last two sentences of the Abstract. The correct sentences are: Lifetime attributable risks (LARs) of thyroid cancers due to ingestion were 1.7–37×10−6 (Case 1) and 5.6–79×10−6 (Case 2) in Fukushima City, 0.73–13×10−6 in Tokyo, and 0.04–0.49×10−6 in Osaka. The contributions of LARs of thyroid cancers due to ingestion were 5.4%–11% of all exposure (Case 1) and 11%–25% (Case 2) in Fukushima City.

There are errors in the seventh sentence of the “Lars of cancer incidence” section of the Results and Discussion. The correct sentence is: The LARs of thyroid cancers were 1.7–37×10−6 in Fukushima City (Case 1), 5.6–79×10−6 in Fukushima City (Case 2), 0.73–13×10−6 in Tokyo, and 0.04–0.49×10−6 in Osaka, and the maximum LAR in Fukushima City (Case 1) was found in females <1 y old.

There are errors in the eleventh sentence of the “Lars of cancer incidence” section of the Results and Discussion. The correct sentence is: The contributions of 131I to the lifetime-exposure thyroid doses were 88%-95% in Fukushima City (Case 1), 80%-91% in Fukushima City (Case 2), 89%–95% in Tokyo, and 42%–67% in Osaka.

There are errors in the second and third sentences of the second paragraph of the “Lars of cancer incidence” section of the Results and Discussion. The correct sentences are: The LARs of all solid cancers due to the three pathways were 1400–4100×10−6 in Fukushima City (Case 1) and 1400–4200×10−6 in Fukushima City (Case 2); those of thyroid cancer were 29–490×10−6 in Fukushima City (Case 1) and 33–510×10−6 in Fukushima City (Case 2) (Table 4). The contributions of LARs of all solid cancer due to ingestion were 0.3%–0.5% (Case 1) and 1.6%–3.1% (Case 2); those of thyroid cancer were 5.4%–11% (Case 1) and 11%–25% (Case 2).

There are errors in the first sentence of the last paragraph of the “Lars of cancer incidence” section of the Results and Discussion. The correct sentence is: As described above, the contributions of 131I to the lifetime-exposure thyroid doses were >80% for Fukushima City, and the contributions of LARs from foods in the second and subsequent years were negligible.

There are errors in Tables 3 and 4. Please see the corrected Tables 3 and 4 here.
