[Photo] 245 Bq/Kg from “pine needle” of Chiba city




A Japanese citizen posted a radiation analysis result on Twitter.

It’s “pine needle”, they detected 245 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 (68 Bq/Kg : Cesium-134, 177 Bq/Kg : Cesium-137). This is 1.5 times much as food safety limit.

It was collected in Mihama ward, Chiba city of Chiba prefecture. Pine needles are found everywhere in Japan. Even the most common things are highly contaminated in Kanto area.

Un habitant japonais a publié une analyse de radioactivité sur Twitter.

Ce sont des “aiguilles de pin”, ils ont relevé 245 Bq/kg de Cs 134/137 (Césium 134 : 68 Bq/kg et césium 137 : 177 Bq/kg). C’est 1,5 fois la limite de sécurité alimentaire.
Elles ont été ramassées dans le quartier de Mihama de la ville de Chiba dans la préfecture de même nom. On trouve partout des aiguilles de pin au Japon. Même les choses les plus courantes sont hautement radioactives dans la région de Kanto.

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.
