15th November 2013 – 78,000,000,000 Bq/m3 of all β, more tank leakage found.
7th November 2013 – Radioactive cesium detection of 430 000 Bq / kg of mushrooms, in the analysis of Minamisoma. From matsutake 38 200 Becquerel (11/7 Mainichi Shimbun)
11th November 2013 – Fukushima flathead flounder sold in Nagoya / 5.5 Bq/kg of Cs-137 detected
Fukushima flathead flounder sold in Nagoya / 5.5 Bq/kg of Cs-137 detected
31st October 2013 – Levels of Radioactive Contaminants in Foods Tested in Respective Prefectures, provided by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.
18th October 2013 – Plutonium release from Fukushima Daiichi fosters the need for more detailed investigations.
Here are two recent research based articles, explaining why Plutonium can travel considerable distances through biological, and environment mechanisms.
Mystery of how plutonium enters cells solved
Plutonium hitches a ride on subsurface particles
However, a plant sample as far as 16 km away in north-northwestern direction (G-V) is suspected to contain plutonium from Fukushima.
2013 – Active cesium contamination of freshwater fish in Fukushima and Eastern Japan.
However, contamination levels are possibly higher than the Chernobyl as the cesium is concentrated by the water systems in limitation region.
In areas within a radius of 100 km from the nuclear plant, active cesium contamination levels of the Ayu are more than 200 Bq/kg. In those between a radius of 100 km and 200 km, it is around 60–200 Bq/kg. In those between a radius of 200 km and 300 km in which Tokyo is included, it is 20–60 Bq/kg.
The contamination is recognized as far as Shizuoka prefecture, 400 km south-west from the plant.
13th October 2013 – Highest level of Cs-134/137 detected in seawater of Fukushima plant port entrance.
13th October 2013 – Collapsed groundwater bypass plan, Tritium detected in all of the 8 groundwater samples. In this analysis, the highest reading was 730,000 Bq/m3. Tritium will not be filtered out to discharge to the Pacific.
11th October 2013 – Olympic athletes and tourists warned they will be in danger from Tokyo’s elevated radiation levels — Cesium found at almost every venue tested!
It doesn’t mater if the contamination was there pre Fukushima or after, these are significant amounts of Cesium contamination!
10th October 2013 – Greenpeace said tests it had carried out inside the original 20-kilometre no-go zone around the plant, showed that high levels of radiation remain.
10th October 2013 – 120 Bq/Kg from 2 bags of rice in Minamisoma Fukushima / All the other bags are to be shipped!
The other bags that are going to be shipped, are also contaminated with significant amounts of Cesium!
7th October 2013 – Cesium Found In Children’s Urine Shows Ongoing Widespread Problem In Japan.
If children from different prefectures in Japan are having Cesium detected in their urine, it means there has to be widespread food, and water contamination. If Cesium contamination is reported, it is very likely other Isotope contaminants are present, but not reported.
26th September 2013 – “This week the Weekly Asahi (週刊朝日）published a report that in urine samples from children living in Kanto, 70% of those tested, contained cesium, a radioactive element that results in internal exposure.”
23rd September 2013 – Cesium 134/137 still found in drinking water across many regions of Japan, including Tokyo NRA June 2013 report.
24th October 2012 – Concentration of Strontium-90 at Selected Hot Spots in Japan.
The data in this study is using Becquerels per gram Bq/g, so you need to multiply by 1000 to get Becquerels per Kilogram Bq/kg ! Note the charts are also using a Becquerels per gram scaling.
18th September 2013 – ‘Extremely Malicious’: Hundreds of tons of cesium tainted wood chips have been found over 500 kilometers from Fukushima, near Japan’s biggest lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture. They were found in the dry bed of the Kamo River, in Takashima and other locations near the lake.
