Fukushima contaminated Hokkaido food too


Online food shop Alter measured radiation of food from Hokkaido.
It turned out that Hokkaido food is contaminated as well.
The person who asked Alter to analyze tweeted like this below

オルター測定結果。北海道産昆布16.9bq、北海道産大豆1.5bq、新潟産やまえのき3.6bq。やっぱり…。関東の汚染地域以外は測定対象外と謳っていた時期もあったけれど、私は不安だった。(ただ、なぜかこの測定結果、一覧にもならず小さく欠品欄に書かれていただけなのが気になる) Source

Alter published the analysis result,
Seaweed from Hokkaido 16.9 Bq/Kg
Soybean from Hokkaido 1.5 Bq/Kg
Enoki mushroom from Niigata 3.6 Bq/Kg

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.
