At the same time, they required 17 prefectural governments to conduct radiation test on 5 additional sorts of food.

Potiron, viande de cheval, et 3 autres aliments n’ont pas été contrôlés par le MHLW depuis le 11-3


Le 20 mars 2013, le Fukushima Diary rapportait Le Gouv JP va réduire les types d’aliments sur lesquels conduire des contrôles de radioactivité “parce que ça diminue dans leurs relevés”

Au même moment, ils (le ministère de la Santé) demandaient à 17 préfectures de procéder à des contrôles de radioactivité sur 5 nouveaux types d’aliments :

Viande de cheval
Pointes de flèche
Patate douce japonaise
Aiguille de mer

Ce qui signifie que ces types de nourriture n’ont pas été contrôlés depuis le 11-3.



Merci de penser à un don !

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.
