Japanese lab rejects urine and breast milk test

Following up this article http://fukushima-diary.com/2011/12/internal-exposure-map-is-open/

Japanese people finally started to try to check the internal dose amount.

To determine the internal dose, urine test is one of the best ways in terms of cost / benefit balance.

However, today a Japanese mother tweeted this below

子どもを守ってね![原発都民投票]
【理研分析センター】息子の尿検査を出していて、引き続き定期的にお願いしようと思っていたのでショック。尿検査と母乳検査のみ受け付けられなくなったそうで、理由について今のところ何とも言えないと。「政治的圧力ですか?」と思いきって聞いてみたら「今は、何も言えません。」とのこと。MLより

translation:

I have sent the urine of my son to Riken Analysis Center. I wanted to have it tested constantly but shockingly they rejected conducting the test this time.

They say they can no longer do urine tests and breast milk tests and they can not say why.
I frankly asked them, if it’s from a political pressure and they said that they can make no comment at the moment.

– end –

Urine testing and breast milk testing are the most important for mothers and children.

According to the webpage of the lab, they actually stopped performing the tests.
