2.9 Bq from a grain of rice in Fukushima, “It can be 140,000 Bq/Kg”

Assistant Professor. Takatsuji from Nagasaki university measured 2.9 Bq of cesium from a grain of rice.(0.02 g)

In 1Kg, it can be 140,000 Bq/Kg.

The rice was produced in Iwaki city Fukushima, where is not a evacuation zone. Iwaki city still ships rice.

They measured 357 Bq/Kg of cesium from the pack of rice, where they found this 2.9 Bq rice grain.

They check every pack of rice supposedly, but cesium concentration is not even, some grains of rice have extremely high level of cesium.

長崎大学の高辻准教授が 0.02gの米を計測したところ 2.9ベクレルのセシウムが検出されました。

1キロあたり 140,000ベクレルにもなるということです。

この米は 避難区域外である福島県いわき市で生産され いわき市は 地元の米を出荷しています。

米粒から 2.9ベクレルが検出された1袋の米から 357ベクレルのセシウムが検出されています。

すべての米袋を検査しているはずですが セシウム濃度は 一律ではなく 米粒によって 非常に高い濃度のセシウムが含まれていることもあるようです。

Thank you for your donation !


The unusually large expense is due to the accommodation cost. Because I came back to the share apartment, it costs.

2,9 Bq/kg dans un simple grain de riz de Fukushima : Ça ferait du 140 000 Bq/kg”

M. Takatsuji, professeur assistant de l’université de Nagasaki a relevé 2,9 Bq/kg de césium dans un seul grain de riz.(0,02 g)

Au kilo, ça ferait 140 000 Bq.

Ce riz a été produit dans la commune d’Iwaki, dans Fukushima, qui n’est pas dans la zone interdite. La ville d’Iwaki délivre toujours du riz.

Ils avaient relevé 357 Bq/kg de césium dans le paquet de riz où ils ont trouvé ce grain de riz à 2,9 Bq/kg.

Ils ont soi-disant contrôlé tous les paquets de riz mais la concentration du césium n’est pas uniforme, certains grains de riz ont des concentrations extrêmement élevées en césium.

Merci pour vos dons !

Ces fortes dépenses inhabituelles sont dues aux coûts d’hébergement. Parce que je suis revenu à l’appartement en co-location, il est cher.

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.
