Highly contaminated barley and wheat are coming to the market

Two of the most basic ingredients, barley and wheat are highly contaminated and distributed to everyday supermarkets.

Though Japanese barley and wheat don’t have price competitive power, we need to check the exporting volume of Japanese contaminated products and to where. On this article, I will only report the contamination situation of them.

In July of 2011, Ibaraki prefecture measured high level of cesium from their barley.[Link 1 2] However because the safety limit of food was 500 Bq/Kg at that time, they were let to the market.

(Ibaraki prefecture is the third largest producing area of barley in Japan.(7.9%, 2005) )

 

Highest readings.

<Settlement report 8/11/2012>

I’m taking up this space to report how much donation I received yesterday.

I’m sorry for the belated report.

I booked a flight ticket yesterday but soon after I submit my credit card information, I was transfered to their starting page and no confirmation code was received. thought that was the first fishing fraud I’ve encountered in my life.

I managed to call them to check and so far, they are an ok airline company and safe.. hope so.

Today I’m going to catch up with news. Sorry for inconvenience.
