126 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134/137 from sandbox in a park of Tokyo

A citizen’s radiation measurement station in Saitama measured significantly high level of radiation in sand of a park in Adachi ward Tokyo.

The reading was 126.1 (± 1.5 Bq/Kg). The sample was taken from a sandbox. Measurement date was 6/23/2014.

This is approx. 1.3 times much as Japanese food safety limit.

Un groupe privé de surveillance de la radioactivité de Saitama a relevé une radioactivité importante dans un sable d’un parc du quartier Adachi de Tokyo.
Le relevé est de 126,1 (± 1.5 Bq/kg). L’échantillon provient d’un bac à sable. Le relevé date du 23 juin 2014.
C’est environ 1,3 fois la limite de sécurité alimentaire japonaise.

  1. Isn’t it interesting that the radiation dose from the cesium would be about 1/6th what you would get from the naturally occurring potassium.

    That’s quite a reassuring measurement.

    1. It is neither reassuring nor alarming unless we have some way of gauging the potential health impact associated with these figures. A microsieverts reading above the soil would be useful. If grains of sand were ingested (for example from children’s fingernails), my understanding is that the potassium would soon be excreted whereas the cesium could become assimilated in muscle for a long period.

      1. Radiocesium Isotopes (Cs-134, Cs-137) are absorbed through the skin. External cesium (Beta) exposure is generally trivial. The absorbed radiocesium from skin contact is a significant health hazard.

  2. Cumulative Effects

    Add the effects of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Atmospheric Nuclear Weapon Tests, Crashed Satellite Pu-238 Rocket Fuel, Chernobyl, FDU-1, FDU-2 meltdowns to the FDU-3 Atomic explosion and the continuing radioactive contamination by diet. And there is ZERO reason for comfort; particularly for Japanese residents of Honshu Island Japan.

    The Nipponese are in Deep Doo Doo; even deeper than USA citizens.

    1. Bill Duff, I noticed Niall has taken a vacation from trolling this site since the redesign. In this war of attrition it seems that the hungry ghosts have little left to snack on, eh?

      1. DeNIALL will never be missed; though TROLLS and SHILLS will remain as long as the Civilian Nuclear Power Industry exists.

  3. A dramatic increase in thyroid cancer, over the last 35 years

    http ://www.cbsnews.com/news/redefining-cancer-could-reduce-unnecessary-treatment/

    (CBS News) On Monday, a panel of excerpts advising the National Cancer Institute proposed changing the definition of cancer and eliminating the classification entirely for certain illnesses. The proposed changes, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, could dramatically affect cancer detection and treatment. Tuesday, Dr. Davis Agus, a leading cancer specialist and the head of the University of Southern California’s Westside Cancer Center, said slow-growing cancers must be redefined in order to reduce potentially damaging overtreatment. There has been a “dramatic increase in certain kinds of cancer like thyroid cancer [and] melanoma,” Dr. Agus said on “CBS This Morning,” “Almost a 200 percent increase over the last 35 years.”

    Many of these cancers are so slow-growing, we need to redefine them.” The risk of aggressive treatment of slow-growing cancers include unecessarily undergoing “radical therapy” including surgery and radiation, treatments that could cause “lots of side effects when it’s not needed,” according to Agus. “Lots of cancers … we don’t need to treat,” he said, citing certain types of thyroid and breast cancers among them, “The key is to treat the cancers we need to treat, so we need a new definition.”

    Undefining Cancer

  4. “calm as Hindu cows right up to the very end”

    ‘Why The Federal Government Wants To Redefine The Word ‘Cancer’’, Opinion 9/29/2013 @ 9:00AM, http ://www.forbes.com/sites/paulhsieh/2013/09/29/why-the-federal-government-wants-to-redefine-the-word-cancer/

    The federal government wants to reduce the number of Americans diagnosed each year with cancer. But not by better preventive care or healthier living. Instead, the government wants to redefine the term “cancer” so that fewer conditions qualify as a true cancer. On July 29, 2013, a working group for the National Cancer Institute (the main government agency for cancer research) published a paper proposing that the term “cancer” be reserved for lesions with a reasonable likelihood of killing the patient if left untreated. Slower growing tumors would be called a different name such as “indolent lesions of epithelial origin” (IDLE). … Hence, the government may have a vested interest in definitions that err towards undertreatment, rather than overtreatment. We must remain vigilant against any attempts by the government to use language as a tool of covert rationing.

    Dr. Milton Wolf, a practicing radiologist who cares for patients with DCIS warns against this Orwellian possibility: Health care rationing takes many insidious forms but perhaps the most immoral is for the government to wage a public relations campaign designed specifically to dissuade patients and doctors from seeking available cures for cancer. They scheme to rename cancer, not to cure it, but to deny it exists. These government rationers have calculated that rather than actually treat patients with cancer, it’s cheaper to simply keep them as calm as Hindu cows right up to the very end.

    “They scheme to rename cancer, not to cure it, but to deny it exists.”

  5. Certainty,

    We can presume with an extremely high degree of certainty; that the gawdamn Japanese government is similarly redefining cancer; to PACIFY the Nipponese … unto death.

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.
