Safety declaration of Fukushima rice was proved to be a lie

Safety declaration of Fukushima rice was a lie

“In Fukushima, 1724 samples of rice, which is as double as national standard, were tested and all of the samples turned out to be less contaminated than emergency safety limit.
– Fukushima Mayor Sato Yuhei”

Fukushima mayor declared the safety of rice in Fukushima 10/12/2011.

However, as the result of the emergency additional test, most of the samples showed much higher level of radiation.

The result is published on the HP of Fukushima prefecture but there is hardly anyone to check it up.

This is the organized data to compare the actual contamination and the published result.

As you can see, Fukushima prefecture picked up the most moderate numbers to publish and concealed the actual contamination data. Actual contamination data is so far from the published results that this table confuses you.

Rice which is actually contaminated even worse than the Japanese safety limit, is distributed.




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.
