JP Gov officially admitted that Japanese food is harmful
Since 311, every time it turned out a kind of food is contaminated, they made “safety” limit, such as 500 Bq/Kg for vegetables, and allowed them to distribute.
However, at today’s meeting of the Lower House Budget Committee, Edano former chief cabinet secretary, current minister of Economy, Trade and Industry admitted that it is harmful for your health if you keep having it for one year.
Edano former chief cabinet secretary is famous for his trade mark phrase, “In short term,it is not harmful”.
He was even called “Short term fraud” by some people.
It is not a small number of people who trusted his word and didn’t evacuate or kept eating food under the “safety limit”.
At today’s meeting of the Lower House Budget Committee, he “explained”.
He held 39 press conferences in the first 2 weeks after 311.
BUT he said “In short term, it is not harmful” ONLY 7 times.
OF those, 5 “In short term, it is not harmful”s were for food and drink.
By this he “meant”, you will be sick if you keep having it for one year, but if you have it once or twice, it doesn’t hurt your body.
2 “In short term, it is not harmful”s were for the north west area of Fukushima plant, which was severely contaminated right after the explosions.
It therefore means, those people who stayed there for long time shall be damaged by radiation.
In conclusion, as Japanese government admitted, if you keep having food from Japan for one year, probably you will be sick.
If it’s only once or twice, you may be ok.
People who abandoned their own sense of judgement, and trusted the government blindly, great job. Good bye.
Otsuka Norikazu, a TV news caster was a good Japanese. He devoted himself for the national campaign of “Let’s support north Japan by eating their food.”
He was sent to the hospital for acute lymphatic leukemia on 11/7/2011.
In the morning, he touched his neck and felt something strange. He went to the doctor.
The doctor diagnosed him to be acute lymphatic leukemia.
It is not clear the connection between his patriotic challenge and acute lymphatic leukemia.It will never be clear.
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.
