1 100 Bq/kg dans des champignons séchés vendus sur la côte Ouest du Japon

Les produits agricoles sont toujours récoltés dans la zone de la catastrophe et expédiés dans les zones moins contaminées.

Selon les mesures sur les aliments du ministère de la Santé du Travail et des Affaires Sociales, 1 100 Bq/kg de césium ont été relevés dans des champignons séchés. Ils venaient de la préfecture d’Iwate qui se trouve à environ 254 km de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.

Ils ont été trouvés dans la préfecture de Niigata. Bien qu’ils soient au-dessus de la limite de sécurité, ils ont été conditionnés et vendus.

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.
