Material of contact lenses are from Fukushima and Ibaraki
Government’s reconstruction budget is spent on irrelevant issues. The main source of revenue is reconstruction tax.
In the House of Representative’s committee of investigation about this problem, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry was accused of supporting the contact lens factory in Gifu prefecture, where is not in the disaster area.
Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry commented like this below,
Le budget de reconstruction du gouvernement est employé n’importe comment. La principale recette provient de l’impôt de reconstruction.
Sur ce problème, au comité d’investigation de la Chambre des Représentants, le ministère de l’Économie, du Commerce et de l’Industrie a été accusé de soutenir l’usine de fabrication de lentilles de contact de la préfecture de Gifu qui ne se trouve pas dans la zone dévastée.
Le ministère de l’Économie, du Commerce et de l’Industrie déclare ceci :
Nous les soutenons parce que l’usine est approvisionnée en matières premières par les préfectures de Fukushima et Ibaraki.
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.
