3,421 Bq/Kg from dried strips of radishes Fukushima, “Radioactive dusts in air got to the dried radish”

Fukushima agricultural research center concluded radioactive dusts and particles are floating in air, it gets to things drought outside.

They measured 3,421 Bq/Kg of cesium from dried strips of radish drought under the eaves of the research center in Koriyama city.

On the other hand, the radiation level of radish drought by machine was under detectable amount.

3 421 Bq/kg dans des tranches de radis séchés de Fukushima : les poussières radioactives de l’air se sont accumulées dans les radis secs

Le centre de recherches de l’agriculture de Fukushima avait conclu que des particules et des poussières radioactives flottaient dans l’air et qu’elles s’accumulent dans ce qu’on fait sécher dehors.

Ils ont relevé 3 421 Bq/kg de césium dans des bandes de radis séchés sous la corniche du toit du centre de recherches de Koriyama.

D’autre part, le niveau de radioactivité de radis séchés en dessiccateur n’était pas détectable.


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.
