On 10/10/2013, Fukushima Diary reported “25,000 Bq/Kg from macaques April 2011, it dropped once but rose again to this spring [URL]”.
From the further research of Prof. Hayama from NVLU, the white cell count of Japanese macaque in Fukushima city drastically decreased.
He compared the cesium density in the muscles of 396 Japanese macaques in Fukushima city and 29 ones in Aomori prefecture from 4. 2011 to 2. 2013.
The estimate of external dose of the ones in Fukushima city is a few mSv/y, internal dose is estimated to be approximately 10 mSv. However, their white cell count and red blood count were lower than ordinary readings. Especially white cell count was significantly lower.
He assumes the hematogenous function was affected.
Des recherches postérieures du Pr. Hayama de la NVLU, le nombre de globules blancs des macaques japonais de la ville de Fukushima a drastiquement diminué.
Il a comparé la concentration en césium des muscles de 396 macaques japonais de la ville de Fukushima et 29 de la préfectures d’Aomori entre avril 2011 et février 2013.
Les estimations de dose externe pour ceux de la ville de Fukushima est de quelques mSv/an, la dose interne est estimée être d’environ 10 mSv. Néanmoins, le nombre de leurs globules blancs et rouges a été inférieur aux mesures habituelles. Les globules blancs en particulier étaient significativement plus bas.
Il pense que la fonction hématogène est atteinte.
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.
