It’s been believed that radiation damages your DNA to cause cancer, the end.
Nerves or brains are therefore insensitive to radiation.
They even made up the word, “radio-phobia”.
Most of the people died in Chernobyl because they believed radiation would potentially cause them cancer, they got paranoid so they killed themselves. As a conclusion, if you are smiling, you would never be affected by radiation.
Dr.Yamashita Shunichi, the radiation hazard advisor of Fukushima said he even proved it with “animal study”.
Some people saw him wearing a mask recently, but anyway, the theory is already denied by at least one post-Chernobyl study.
Here is the part about the risk of organic damage to your nerve.
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.
