Shizuoka prefecture to quit radiation monitoring of school lunch in 3 cities


From this April, the board of education in Shizuoka is going to quit the radiation test for school lunch in 3 cities, Fuji, yaizu, and Nishiizu cho.

They have been conducting the radiation test (Cs-134 / 137) in elementary schools and school lunch center since last September. They were mixing all the food served for the week to test the radiation level.

The reason to quit the test is “because they didn’t measure radiation”.

They continue radiation test for food from 16 prefectures around Fukushima.

La préfecture de Shizuoka va abandonner le contrôle de la radioactivité des repas scolaires dans 3 de ses communes


En avril prochain, le bureau de l’éducation de Shizuoka va abandonner les contrôles de radioactivité des repas scolaires de 3 communes, Fuji, Yaizu, et Nishiizu cho.

Ils procédaient à ces contrôles de radioactivité (Cs 134 / 137) des repas des écoles élémentaires et des centres scolaires depuis septembre dernier. Ils mélangeaient tous les aliments de la semaine pour faire leur contrôles.

La raison invoquée pour abandonner ces contrôles est “qu’ils n’ont pas relevé la moindre radioactivité”.

Ils continuent les contrôles de radioactivité des repas dans 16 préfectures autour de Fukushima.


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.
