Fukushima radioactive substances "miscalculation" was actually 25 times the cesium! - Infoseek News

日によっては、当初の発表と比べて、実に25倍以上の値になっている。 その原因も、採取したサンプルを分析用の機械にかける際に、「割り算」を忘れるという、実にお粗末なものだった。 誤りが分かったのは、空中のチリから測定する「定時降下物」の調査。 原発事故後、文科省は全都道府県で測定されたヨウ素131、セシウム134、セシウム137の値を毎日公表している。 具体的には、容器に水をはって大気中のチリを受け止め、そのチリをゲルマニウム半導体核種分析装置と呼ばれる装置で分析する。 文科省の9月2日の発表によると、文科省は8月29日、福島県から「測定結果に誤りがあった」との報告を受け、データの再検証を求めていた。 修正後のデータが、9月26日になって発表された。 その中には、修正後の値が大きく違っているものも少なくない。 7月19日は、31メガベクレルだったセシウム134が19倍の590メガベクレル、39メガベクレルだったセシウム137が19.2倍の750メガベクレルに修正されている。

At this time: There is no travel advisory for Japan because of radiation hazards.There is no radiation hazard in the United States from Japan.There is no radiation hazard for food, including seafood. Visit the U.S. Embassy in Japan for more information or concerns about your upcoming trip. Visit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for more information on environmental radiation monitoring programs. 1/3 of Japan should be evacuated. 'No safe levels' of radiation in Japan - Features. In a nuclear crisis that is becoming increasingly serious, Japan’s Nuclear Safety Agency confirmed that radioactive iodine-131 in seawater samples taken near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex that was seriously damaged by the recent tsunami off the coast of Japan is 4,385 times the level permitted by law.

'No safe levels' of radiation in Japan - Features

Airborne radiation near the plant has been measured at 4-times government limits. Tokyo Electric Power Company, the company that operates the crippled plant, has begun releasing more than 11,000 tons of radioactive water that was used to cool the fuel rods into the ocean while it attempts to find the source of radioactive leaks. The water being released is about 100 times more radioactive than legal limits.

Meanwhile, water that is vastly more radioactive continues to gush into the ocean through a large crack in a six-foot deep pit at the nuclear plant. There Is No "Safe" Level Of Radiation. "There is no safe dose of radiation" ~ Prof.

There Is No "Safe" Level Of Radiation

Edward P. Radford, Physician and Epidemiologist While a highly coordinated effort is underway by the nuclear industry, mainstream media, medical establishment and world governments to define, justify and reinforce a "safe level of radioactivity" pertaining to the air, the water, the food, and our bodies, the unspoken truth contained within the precautionary principle that there is no safe dose of radiation, nor a safe level of exposure to the 200+ radioisotopes released by the Fukushima reactor complex meltdown, is but an inaudible whisper in the cacophony of a world dominated by universal deception.

The question of exposure should not be "if" but "when," and "how" we deal with it once it happens. If you are not disturbed by this information, you may be failing to understand the true nature of this event and the intrinsically insane design of the nuclear industry itself.

An alarming statement made by James Acton, a physicist who examined Japan’s Kashiwazaki nuclear plant after a 2007 earthquake, who told CNN that Japanese authorities are in race to cool down the Fukushima reactor. Following the fifth largest earthquake in recorded world history, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake, has resulted in the closure of all Japan’s nuclear power reactors, one of which, the Fukushima reactor, is overheating and in danger of a meltdown if coolant is not restored soon.

It’s like a pressure cooker… when you have something generating heat and you don’t cool it off or release the steam… They go on to say, “Up to 100 percent of the volatile radioactive Cesium-137 content of the pools could go up in flames and smoke, to blow downwind over large distances,” Update, Radiation Network in Real-Time.

Contamination of Food -Allowable limits

Randell Dr Alan Randell is Senior Officer (Food Standards), Food Quality and Standards Service, FAO, Rome.1 1 Most of the work reported in this paper comes from the reports of FAO invited experts in the fields of food control and radiological protection. Their names are listed in the FAO report of December 1986. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is responsible for advising its Member Governments on a wide range of topics affecting agriculture and food production, processing, storage and trade, including compliance with legislation that controls food quality and safety.

Releases of radioactive materials into the environment can have a significant effect on trade in agricultural and food commodities. World Nuclear News. Separating Fact From Fiction.

This has ranged from rational concerns (this model of reactor seems unsafe!) To the not-so-rational ones (I need to buy potassium iodide RIGHT NOW!). With that in mind, we’ve decided to focus on a simple, practically important question; if the Mark 1 Reactor is indeed inferior on safety, where are ours and are they earthquake safe?
