14th September 2014 – Fukushima sake raises health concerns
China imposed a ban on importing some products, including sake, from Fukushima, following the rector meltdown triggered by the earthquake and tsunami in April 2011.
23rd August 2014 – S. Korea returned 20 t of Japanese marine products for Cs-134/137 contamination / Not from Fukushima area.
S. Korea banned imports from Fukushima prefecture and 7 adjacent prefectures last September, so this 20 t of returned marine products are not from the main contaminated regions in Japan.
1st November 2013 – Radioactive cesium detected in stock feed imports from Japan.
According to a report by the agriculture ministry, levels as high as 2.3 becquerels of cesium were found in more than 85 tons of assorted feed for livestock. About 10-thousand tons of different types of feeds are estimated to have been distributed so far nationwide.
13th September 2013 – Government says seawater passes safety test.
Comment: If you read further down this article and you find this statement.
“China has banned fish imports from 10 prefectures of Japan, but accepts those from the other regions even though cesium levels are as high as 800 Bq/kg,” the minister said. “Since we import those with 100 Bq/kg or less, Korea has a stronger standard.”
800Bq/kg or even 100 Bq/Kg is not safe! Recent research is suggesting 5 Bq/kg or less occasional ingestion. It is all extra risk no mater what level. Also these tests do not tell you about any other isotope contamination that may have bio-accumulated in these sea food products.
10th September 2013 – Korea may sue Japan for mishandling leaks, of highly contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean.
Comment: These are not leaks, there has been a flood of highly contaminated water flowing into the Pacific Oceans for over 30 months now. Tepco has provided various estimates ranging between 300 to 600 tons per day.
Calculation there is far more water flowing into the Pacific, than the Tepco published estimate. This does not include the ground water flowing through the plant!
Water is poured on to a melting core at 30,000 gallons per minute – (scientific estimation during an emergency meltdown)
– 8.3 pounds is the weight of one gallon of water
– 30,000 gallons of water weight 249,000 pounds
– A short TON, commonly used in the US, is equal to 2000 pounds
ONE MINUTE – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 124.5 TONS of water. (All based on 30,000 gallons per minute)
ONE HOUR – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 7,470 TONS of water.
24 HOURS – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 79,280 TONS of water.
1 WEEK – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 1,254,960 TONS of water.
ONE YEAR – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 65,257,920 TONS of water.
50 YEARS – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 3,262,896,000 TONS of water.
100 YEARS – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 6,525,792,000 TONS of water.
1000 YEARS – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 6,525,792,000,000 TONS of water.
Now lets x3 melted cores = 19,577,376,000,000 tons of water.
It is logical to suggest, that far more water has and is flowing into the Pacific Ocean than the estimates provided by Tepco!
6th September 2013 – South Korea places import ban on all fisheries products from eight Japanese prefectures, Fukushima, Ibaraki, Gunma, Miyagi, Iwate, Tochigi, Chiba and Aomori.
South Korea places import ban on all fisheries products from Japan’s Fukushima region.
18th August 2013 – The Korea Herald “Government slammed over monitoring of Japanese seafood.” Around 3,010 tons of fish detected with Cesium contamination in Korea. Any Cesium contamination is a high risk to Pregnant women and young children, particularly girls.
2nd August 2013 – 3.65-5.25 becquerel/kilogram of iodine was detected in six samples of tangleweed.

12th March 2015 – Hong Kong Finds Radioactive Contamination in Sample of Japanese Tea
A sample of powdered tea imported from the Japanese prefecture of Chiba, just southeast of Tokyo, had 9.3 times the legal maximum level of radioactive cesium 137 allowed in food, the Hong Kong government announced late Thursday evening.
PAST REPORT APRIL 8, 2011 – Radioactive Iodine detections over 30 provincial areas and Cesium over 22 provincial areas of China.
10th September 2013 – Ban all fish from Japan to ease fears, says Hong Kong food expert. Professor argues it is better to reassure people there is zero risk of radioactive contamination.
