Thank you for your support as always. Recently I’m buying airplane tickets to the next destination. I’m going to North America before europeanized too much.

Yesterday, one of the subscribers of 20USD monthly cancelled the subscription. I don’t know why, maybe something happened to his/her life but I couldn’t help thinking my articles were not useful enough.


About this article..Mutated canola looking like a new kind of plants

That was very shocking to me, and I received some questions.

1. Do people still live where it grows ?

→ Yes, of course. It’s along Edogawa river to run in Tokyo as well. The picture was taken in Chiba, right next to Tokyo.

2. Is it ok to touch without globe ?

→ Not ok but not too serious. The problem is the contaminated soil and water. The plant is messed up but doesn’t emit radiation from its body.

3. How does normal canola look ?

→ I attached the picture on the original artilce.

4. Why does nobody take it to a lab ?

→ As far as we know, none of the Japanese labs check those “stressed” plants. One of my old classmate is in Tokyo university  gene engineering devision but he says probably there is no lab to check it too. I wish I knew if there was.



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.
