In 20km area, cattle are abandoned and living in the wild. Having analyzed 88 cattle of them, it turned out that unborn babies are 1.3 times more contaminated in their organs than their mothers.
Additionally, they found out muscle concentrates cesium 20~30 times more than blood, and tongue and liver concentrate 10 times more than blood.(60 Bq/Kg in blood→1800 Bq/Kg in muscle)
Also, radioactive silver is concentrated in liver, tellurium is concentrated in kidney.
Prof. Hashimoto is expecting to study more about internal exposure by analyzing 300 cattle by March so they can apply the knowledge to human’s internal exposure.
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.
