News: There’s nothing left to eat

Greenpeace conducted a survey for fish sold at 5 major supermarket chains.

They are AEON, Itoyokado, UNY, Daiei, Seiyu

You can find one or a few of them everywhere around in Tokyo.

They searched at the branches in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Ibaraki, Fukushima, and Miyagi

They used NaI scintillation detector (LB 2045), collaborating with ACRO.

As the result, all of them sold contaminated fish. (34 out of 60 samples)

Though the highest amount was 88 Bq/kg from UNY, it measured only Cs-134, 137.

When it comes to seafood, the main risk is Strontium, which is water soluble and can easily absorbed to the bone to cause leukemia.

Now there is the truth that if they ban selling all the contaminated food, food prices will be as double as before.

We pay money and life to live today.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
