16th September 2013 – JP Gov “There is no technology to remove Tritium from contaminated water,” Appeal international world for technology.
Tritium density in the storage tanks at Fukushima is approx. 100,000,000,000 Bq/m3, half life 12.32 years. It combines with oxygen to form a liquid called tritiated water, T2O.
Hugh amounts of Tritiated water would have to be flowing into the Pacific Ocean, as they can’t filter it out.
13th September 2013 – 97,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium detected in groundwater of 300m3 leakage tank area / 1.5 times much as one day before.
12th September 2013 – Fukushima Prefecture wants to allow farmers to sell wild mushrooms and wild edible plants, which have been known to concentrate radioactive cesium.
Food testing full of loopholes big enough to drive a farm truck through.
4th September 2013 – Fukushima fishermen losing hope as trial operations postponed.
This is because of the latest reports of water leaks into the Pacific Ocean at the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster site.
Extract: In recent months, radiation levels have been at less than the detection limit of around 16 becquerels per kilogram for most species, such as flatfish, marbled flounder and whitebait.
2nd September 2013 – Farmers REFUSE to Eat their OWN Food & feel GUILTY Selling it! FUKUshima.
Fukushima farmers make clear courageous statements about the food contamination situation in Japan, while government officials lie, and play down the seriousness of the situation, to protect their jobs, and positions.
30th August 2013 – 56,000,000,000 Bq/m3 of Cs-134/137 in water of reactor 3.
28th August 2013 – Tepco Faces 132 Olympic Pools Worth of Radioactive Water
The more than 330,000 metric tons of water with varying levels of toxicity is stored in pits, basements and hundreds of tanks at the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant.
“There are really only a few ways you can get rid of it,” Friedlander said. “You put it in the ocean or it’s going to have to be evaporated. It’s a political hotspot, but at some point you cannot just continue collecting this water.”
23rd August 2013 – Chinese media question at press conference “May contaminated water affect neighboring countries?” → (Tepco) “We don’t know.” This question was put to Tepco as Soma city fishery cooperative, had given up the testing of fishing due to the marine contaminated.
21st August 2013 – 300 tonnes of highly contaminated water from cesium absorption by SARRY, and desalination by Reverse Osmosis Apparatus, has leaked from a huge 1,000-tonne steel tank.
It is likely that the waste water is STILL LEAKING. There are 350 of these poor quality tanks, presently located at the Fukushima Nuclear disaster site, storing highly contaminated water!
6th August 2013 – Japan’s nuclear body calls radioactive groundwater leakage at Fukushima ‘emergency’.
5th August 2013 – This is a large database of food testing results for the Fukushima region. Firstly look at the contamination levels that are now classed as safe, for Cesium and Iodine. They are much lower than the elevated levels they set just after the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, still much to high for children.
Can these test results be relied upon? The Japanese authorities have been caught out numerous times tampering with local monitoring stations, and Geiger counter settings, to show lower readings. Trying to present a much safer environment than is actually present.
Also, the detection levels thresholds seem to be a moving target in this database. It may be because of differences in test equipment sensitivity. This database is only showing test results for Cesium, and Iodine. It does not provide testing information for other possible dangerous isotopes that may be present.
Click on food items, and then set the date range at the bottom of the page, and then click search to get the food testing results.
26th July 2013 – TEPCO admits lax risk management over tainted water.
Now, if 2.35 Billion Bq/L of Cesium is a definition of tainted water, what would be the amount of Cesium in Bq/L, for hugely contaminated water?
26th July 2013 – Citizen’s radiation station “530 Bq/Kg from shoji screen in Saitama”
22th July 2013 – Tepco now admits radioactive water entering the sea at Fukushima, No. 1 Fisheries exec shocked by utility’s flip-flop on groundwater’s flow.
17th July 2013 – 212,000 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from Spotbelly rockfish in Fukushima nuclear plant port.
15th July 2013 – 290,000,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium in the first analysis of the new boring hole 38 m from the Pacific Ocean.
14th July 2013 – Japanese children are catching crayfish in a park in Kohriyama city Fukushima, where the atmospheric dose is over 1 μSv/h.
July 12, 2013 – 1,037 becquerels of Cesium per/Kg in Japanese sea-bass, this is more than ten times the safety limit set by the government, Japanese news reports said on Friday.
12th July 2013 – Radioactive Fish, Pacific Ocean, Fukushima leaking badly.
10th July 2013 – Toxic water at Fukushima likely contaminating sea – Japan’s nuclear watchdog
5th July 2013 – Food contamination fears still persist in Japan, and will for decades. This short video by Jamie Williams of the New York Times, clearly explains why private food testing has become a necessity to protect families, and children in Japan.
1st July 2013 – 1.04 Bq/Kg of Cs-137 detected from powdered milk sold in Tokyo, Japan.
1st July 2013 – 220 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from carp in Teganuma lake Chiba, Japan.
1st July 2013 – 0.27~0.3 μSv/h from incense sticks at a temple, made with Japanese cedar.
