MHLW manipulated new safety food limit

Following up this article ..Japanese government is going to raise the safety limit for infant

The report turned out to have been manipulated.
Emeritus professor, Nakamura from Tohoku University, the former chairman of Councilor of radiation belonging to Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, requested members of related academic conference to send messages to tell “If they make the food safety limit more strict, it would damage agricultural industry of Fukushima.”
The councilor was accepting various opinions for the food safety limit. Those manipulated comments were treated as “opposing opinion” against the side to make the limit more strict.
1700 messages were accepted and 300 of them were “opposing opinion”.
In the email to request for the “Opposing opinion”, the current chairman of Niwa was mentioned as well.

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.
