Significant level of cesium-134/137 from 3 of 3 bamboo shoot samples in Yokohama

Significant level of Cs-134/137 were measured from 3 of 3 bamboo shoot samples in Yokohama.


Over 3 years have passed but still Cs-134/137 are detected from food.

The sampling location is Yokohama. The samples were collected on 4/1/2014.

The highest reading was 34 Bq/kg (Cs-134/137), the lowest was 15 Bq/kg. Because Cs-134 is measured from all of these bamboo shoots, it is from Fukushima for 100% sure.


Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare states these products are not distributed.



Downplay it in the beginning, and quietly add more information so nobody notices it. All for not letting the cattle escape. This is their strategy.

Radioactivité élevée en césium 134/137 dans 3 de 3 échantillons de pousses de bambous de Yokohama


Une radioactivité élevée en Cs 134/137 a été relevée dans 3 des 3 échantillons de pousses de bambous de Yokohama.

Plus de 3 ans sont passés et on relève toujours du Cs-134/137 dans les aliments.
L’échantillonnage provient de Yokohama. Il date du 1er avril 2014.
Le record a été de 34 Bq/kg (Cs-134/137), le plus bas de 15 Bq/kg. Dans toutes ces pousses de bambou, la radioactivité est due à 100% à Fukushima parce qu’on a relevé du Cs 134.

Le ministère de la Santé, du Travail et des Affaires Sociales affirme que ces produits ne seront pas distribués (à la vente).

Le minimiser au début et ajouter tranquillement de nouvelles information pour que personne ne le remarque. Tout pour que le troupeau ne s’échappe pas. C’est leur stratégie.

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.
