Fukushima local government only check 2.9% of all the rice

Following up this article http://fukushima-diary.com/2011/11/russian-roulette/

Though it is obvious that Fukushima rice is contaminated ,Fukushima government has been trying to sell their cesium rice whatever happens.

Every time Fukushima rice exceed the emergency safety limit ,Fukushima local government re-declared “safety” with zero basis and tried to push their cesium rice to the market.

They say,they sell only rice which have passed their safety test.

However,it turned out that they only check 2.9% of all the rice.

There are 60,000 farmers in Fukushima ,but Fukushima local government only checked 1724 lots of rice.
but they state it is more than double as what the government required them to check ,other local governments conduct even more meaningless safety check.

Additionally ,even around Onami chiku ,where they measured 1270 Bq/kg from the rice , they check only one of 50 bags,which means 2 %.

We definitely should not eat rice.


  1. Why do they even bother? At the rate they’re going, they should just pretend it never happened-??

  2. No offense, but I really don’t understand the complete passivity and acquiescence of this culture during a life-threatening emergency…???

    I’d be saying, Ah hell no!!! (especially when it’s mucking up in your backyard) 😛 Yeah, it’s going everywhere, but Japan is on the front lines and should act accordingly.

  3. I wouldn’t blame the culture so much as it is the government. The government and industry control the media and the education system. People are either brainwashed into thinking there is nothing to worry about and that radiation is safe or they know the truth and can’t do anything about it. We are all slaves on this planet. So don’t blame the people, for most know no better. You think America would be any different? They don’t even test for radiation imported from Japan through food, air, or water. The only way for change is an uprising and forcibly removing every position of power in government and industry. This will never happen of course because most people are stupid and believe the lies they are told from child on up.

    The excuses of culture and shame and secretiveness are just that…excuses. They are excuses espoused to limit the government from being accosted for its lies, manipulation, and outright murder. Japanese gov’t and industry is just as bad as America’s.

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.
