A Japanese citizen measured extremely high density of Cs-134/137 from mushroom in Fukushima.
On 10/22/2015, the person posted on Twitter that 52,339 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 was detected from a type of mushroom called “Ramaria botrytis” (Photos A). The sample was collected in a copse of Futaba county in Fukushima.
Cs-134/137 density was 2,378 Bq/Kg in the soil around the sample to show the mushroom concentrated Cs-134/137 over 22 times.
30,865 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 was also measured from a sample of “Cortinarius violaceus” (Photos B). The sampling location was the same.

Un habitant japonais a relevé une radioactivité en césium 134/137 extrêmement forte dans des champignons de Fukushima.
Le 22 octobre 2015, cette personne a publié sur Twitter avoir relevé 52 339 Bq/kg de Cs 134/137 sur un champignon de l’espèce “Ramaria botrytis” (Photos A). L’échantillon provient d’un taillis du conté de Futaba dans Fukushima.
La radioactivité en Cs 134/137 était de 2 378 Bq/kg dans le sol autour de l’échantillon ce qui montre que le champignon a concentré le Cs-134/137 dans un facteur de plus de 22 fois.
30 865 Bq/kg de Cs-134/137 ont également été relevés dans un spécimen de “Cortinarius violaceus” (Photos B) pris au même endroit.
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.
