“NRA reports Cs-134/137 density in Tokyo tap water higher than Fukushima.”

August 01, 2014 at 03:00PM


It was the second quarter of 2014. The Cs-134/137 density was 0.00286 Bq/kg in Tokyo, where it was 0.0028 Bq/kg in Fukushima prefecture.

You read this now because we’ve been surviving until today.

La NRA : la radioactivité en césium 134/137 de l’eau du robinet est plus forte à Tokyo qu’à Fukushima

C’était au second trimestre 2014. La radioactivité en Cs-134/137 était à 0,00286 Bq/kg dans Tokyo alors qu’elle était à 0,0028 Bq/kg dans la préfecture de Fukushima.

Vous pouvez lire ceci parce que nous avons survécu jusqu’à aujourd’hui.

  1. Here, let me fix your title for you. ““NRA reports Cs-134/137 density in Tokyo tap the same as in Fukushima within measurement errors.”

    0.00286 Bq/L * 700 liters per year = 2.002 Bq/year

    2.002 Bq/year * 1.35e-2 microSV/Bq = 0.027 microSv/year or in layman’s terms, “nothing”

    1. De nada.
      That appears to be a Wild Ass Guess, of a sort, in my humble opinion.

      What were detection limits?
      What is the accuracy of the instrument involved in detection?
      What of other radioactive isotopes?
      Whom can say that all tapwater has that density homogenously?
      How about other sources of chronic internal radiocontamination?
      How about absorbtion through skin via bathing and showering?
      Where are data for chemical toxicity?

      Maybe it is “nothing” to you at face value, yet i’m not at all convinced by your simplistic argument.
      2Bq/annum for two isotopes only via one pathway.

      What of amounts precipitated out in sewer sludge & Jakesou of which is recycled for bioaccumulation via fruits & vegetable fertilization?
      Remember, a portion of this sludge is to be incinerated, so that implies the potential for inhalation of nuclides.

      Thank you for working out the math though for this one aspect of human contamination. Left to assume that 700 litres represents annual water consumption per Standard Man via drinking, as this is not clearly stated.

      Also, from sludge evidence, if as you stated earlier, 131-I detections are wholly from RAI treatment then people appear to be releasing far more Cesium isotopes than they ingest via your calculation. It is as of yet an unbalanced equation.

      While we are on that subject of 131-I detections and their source, i find it interesting that such isotope was detected in snow during the winter of 2012.

      Did they detect this from the dreaded “yellow snow”? I think that improbable.

      Also, 131-I detections seem to be a common theme here, from 3/11 to date.

      Quote of Mochizuki-san: “I-131 can be detected when it’s used for medical treatment, and also nuclear fission occurred in Fukushima nuclear plant.
      It could have been from the medical usage, however it can be unlikely to have increased gradually.”

      Are we certain nobody else in the Northern Hemisphere had a “Fukuppy” of their own while CTBTO sensor data seems unavailable to the general public?

      That is what i fear; another rogue plant anywhere. You might have a similar concern.
      How can i trust what it is being bandied about as fact, especially from TEPCO? How can i possibly verify? Do you see the dillemma?

      Niall, please give diemos back his phone.

      1. Wow, you do go off in all directions. Do you think that that will distract from the simple fact that the measured cesium levels in the tap water are trivial? Which was the topic of this post.

        1. That does nothing to change the fact that you have neglected to label what the reader is left to assume to be your variable for tapwater consumption, nor how you arrived at that figure.

          1. You didn’t seem to have any trouble identifying it as the usual assumption for the Standard Man.

      1. He is banned because he is a paid shill who is not interested in chat or debate, his only mission is to slander, mislead and lie.

  2. Nuclear fallout contamination values for untreated water indicate environmental conditions. Municipal Water Treatment methods, including: chemical precipitation, filtration, reverse osmosis and/or dilution; can produce tap water of any desired purity.

    ‘Team Nuke’ deliberately jumps back & forth to MAXIMIZE public confusion. That is because, ‘Team Nuke’ and their lackeys in political office and the Mendacity Media are dangerous, lying, sunnybeaches.

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.
