Pollen will be contaminated at least for 4 years

Following up this article ..Cesium pollen started attacking Tokyo

Full-time lecturer, Noguchi from Nihon university says, Japanese cedar takes 4 years to change the leaves.

Until they change them, the pollen will be contaminated.


Tepco measured about 90,000 Bq/kg of cesium from the soil of the sea ground in front of reactor 5 and 6.

Foresty agency announced they measured 253,000 Bq/Kg from the pollen in Namie machi, which is about 3 times higher than the sea ground soil.




  1. The reactor soil should be over 10,000,000 bq/kg and forest little less, their numbers DO NOT MAKE SENSE!!!!!! AT ALL!!!

  2. You should encourage every honey bee keeper to get a radiation meter and record their hive contamination levels. It takes pollen and nectar from 2,000,000 flowers to make just 1 kilogram of honey. The concentration in the hive will be very large. One hive will forage from 3 to 6 km in every direction.

  3. This article brings to my mind an idea which may sound morbid at first, but may of tremendous help to clean up the environment. The concentration mechanisms of radioactive substances in nature give us an opportunity of trying dramatically cut down on the amount of radioactive substances.

    Mushrooms, berries, fruit etc. should be collected on a massive scale, just as always or even more than that, both game and their corresponding predators be hunted in an appropriate proportion and fishing should be performed. However, the trick is not to allow them to be consumed, even if the contamination is at a supposedly safe level. Cutting down trees, collecting seaweed etc. should also be considered.

    I am advocating treating anything from nature as radioactive waste for a few years to actively remove and avoid reintroducing radioactive substances (primarily Cs-137 and Cs-134) into nature. I guess this would cause massive problems and would be infeasible (avoiding radioactivity by starving the population would be rather counterproductive), but if it could be done, it would help with reducing the sources of radiation affecting the population both in the short and the long term.

  4. Assuming NO MORE RADIATION FALLOUT. And no groundwater or soil contamination to add to the number. Trees are living, and will continue to accumulate. Sad to say, it continues. So four years for what?

  5. Thanks , I’ve just been searching for information approximately this subject for a long time and yours is the best I’ve discovered till now. However, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you sure in regards to the supply?|What i don’t understood is if truth be told how you’re now not really a lot more smartly-appreciated than you may be right now. You are so intelligent.

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.
