The fact that high level of radiation causes multiple-headed plants

Following up this article..Double-headed flowers

From 1987 to 2003, it has been experimented to cause plants mutation by radiation at Okinawa Prefectural Agricultural Research Center.

The purpose was to produce new kinds of rose (Samantha) for the market demand.

The result shows 52mSv/h caused triple-headed rose.

The rose was irradiated for 16 months per generation. Because this is not to know the lowest dose to cause variety of mutation, the sensitivity of rose is not known.

Also, the effect of internal exposure of plants is not known either.

The experiment took several generations to make the mutated features appear stably.

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.
