130 Bq/kg from beef, still


US is rejecting the import of Japanese beef, but they may be right. (cf. US rejected importing Japanese beef for radioactive contamination)

130 Bq/Kg of cesium was measured from beef in Tochigi.

On 8/21/2012, agricultural department of Tochigi prefecture announced they measured 130 Bq/Kg of cesium from beef in Yaita, Tochigi. It’s 120km from Fukushima plant.

The safety limit is 100 Bq/kg, the contaminated beef was abandoned.

They also measured 1086 Bq/Kg of cesium from the pasture.

Even though the radiation level is lower than the safety limit, other beef may be contaminated because of the pasture.




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.
