    Remember in early April 2011 when the U.S. gov’t flew over Japan and gathered radiation readings, and took ground radiation readings?

    Well, got a report with the results through a Freedom of Information Act request.

    In the first week of April 2011, from 18-25 miles away from Daichi:

    They found up to 100,000 Bq/kg of cesium-137 in the soil.
    They found up to 1,400,000 Bq/kg of cesium-137 in leafy vegetation.

    The food limits for Cesium in Japan are:

    In Bq/kg =

    Drinking water 10
    Milk 50
    General foodstuffs 100
    Baby Foods 50

    So you can see how the health effects of this could be disastrous.

    Here is the document with other radiation results:

    People may not know this (and I’ve been planing to write it up but haven’t had a chance) but there is a situation here, in Hawai’i, where Japanese fishermen are coming here, and buying up fish – lots of fish – off local fishermen. It’s becoming a problem, raising prices here. So just to be clear (we already know they’re buying a lot of ahi – young ahi – from Korean fishermen) much of the fish found in Japan sushi bars are NOT actually sourced from Japan waters.

  3. Sigh says:

    Wasn’t aware of that, cgri. Thanks for the information.

    The amount of things going on behind the scenes is ridiculous. Thanks to the mainstream media, I can go to bed feeling safe with the vital knowledge that a cat in a tree somewhere was saved, or that Justin Bieber is touring the country.

    I think it’s especially sad how people always think “it’s less radiation than it could be” or “it’s the same radiation as something else” instead of “we could go elsewhere and not be receiving radiation at all”. Yet another example of why justification by comparison is stupid.
