The Japanese government is reluctantly, but finally starting to realize the serious long-term health consequences of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
They are going to conduct thyroid test in more than 3 places out of Fukushima prefecture.
During an 8/27/2012 press conference, Chief Cabinet Secretary Fujimura commented that the Japanese government was going to conduct thyroid ultrasounds on people living in more than 3 locations outside Fukushima Prefecture.
The ultrasounds will be conducted under the same conditions as those conducted on Fukushima residents aged under-18, and the results will be compared with those obtained for the Fukushima residents.
Ils vont mener des examens thyroïdiens dans plus de 3 endroits pris hors de la préfecture de Fukushima.
Durant la conférence de presse du 27 août 2012, le secrétaire du chef de cabinet, M. Fujimura, a annoncé qu’ils vont procéder, dans plus de 3 lieux situés en dehors de la préfecture de Fukushima, à des examens d’inspection thyroïdiens par ultrasons.
Les inspections seront menées dans des conditions identiques (moins de 18 ans) pour pouvoir comparer les résultats avec ceux de Fukushima.
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.
