Cs-137 129746Bq + Cs-1... on Twitpic

The result of WBC.

Cs-137 129,746 Bq + Cs-134 122,676 Bq = 252,422 Bq/kg

[Endless concealment]
NSC deleted all the data of thyroid test for Fukushima children in order to “save their privacy” from their website.
They could have deleted only their address or name,but they delete their health state,amount of dose which they were exposed too.

[Endless contamination]
In Shimane,they detected 1082Bq/kg from barnyard manure.They assume it is because cows ate cesium hay from Miyagi.

[Tepco attack]
Tepco is still planning their random blackout. They made twitter account by themselves to let us know they are going to start blackout.I wonder if I could be connected to twitter even in the sudden blackout.

[Low dose symptom is way more serious than direct exposure]
<Petkau effect> 1972,Dr Petkau discovered,low and long internal exposure damages DNA for 100~1,000 times higher than direct exposure.

Japan Min of Health radioactive seafood survey

[Sea contamination]
8/10 Ministry of Health published their radiation test result for sea food from Fukushima.

(It can be manipulated to show lower than actual because it’s from Ministry of Health)

Ayu (kind of fish) 1770Bq/kg

Three executives of ministry of economy are recalled but given bonus adding to their retirement salary,10 million yen to each.

[Fukushima citizen conducted radiation check]

Sun flower (root) ; 17,300 Bq/kg (Total of cesium 134 and 137 )

They checked rain water on 3/22 too.
Iodine 131 ; 24,018 Bq/L
Cesium 134 ; 111.8 Bq/L
Cesium 137 ; 113.7 Bq/L

They are going to re-start Tomari nuc plant in Hokkaido,but the earthquake-resistance strength is only 368gal.
Recent aftershock after 311 has about 476gal at average.

100 reasons to ban nuc power right now (in japanese)

[For Japanese readers]
100 reasons to ban nuc power right now.

[To the next step]
Fukushima local government has officially declared that they will keep at anti nuc policy.

[Interview with Chris Busby]
1) Scientists lie.
2) Japanese gov sticks to ICRP but it’s useless. ICRP does not cover internal exposure.
ICRP was made in 1952. DNA was found in 1953.
3) Mr.Koide claims that we must consume contaminated food to save the 1st industry of Fukushima,but then radiation will even spread through our sewage.

Petition (Obligation) to let pregnant mothers,infants,and children evacuate from 30km area and hot spots soon as possible.
This is for Japanese pm and the cabinet.

It’s super hot,Tepco allowed us to wear hood mask instead of the normal radiation mask ,but I can’t wear it yet.I find it too risky.Inside of the building,they still detect Iodine.

Today water cooling system leaked water at unit 4,but it wasn’t that a serious accident.Maybe it’ll be lightly repaired and replaced by a new one late August.

I went to the top floor of unit 4 today,but because the outside is so hot and (maybe) the water cooling system is working so it wasn’t steamy.but there were so many rubble on the floor,it was hard to walk.They say they will finally take away the broken ceilings or steal pipes because of the explosion soon.

It was a good view from the top floor but maybe too high for some It was 0.2~0.5mSv/h,without the rubble,it might be a little decreased. Fuel rods looked ok,but couldn’t see the bottom of the pool.We need to see it with a water camera. The pool is full of rubble too.

I don’t think it is not the time to lift the mandatory evacuating area.I really can sympathize them wanting to go home,but not now.They mustn’t come back until it’s promised to be safe,children can play outside safe.I ‘ll do my best. Pray..

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.
