The Japanese government is trying to calm fears about radiation levels and food safety in the region around the heavily damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility, even as it has raised the severity rating of the crisis to the highest possible level. "Radiation is continuing to leak out of the reactors, the situation is not stable at all," says Dr. Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at the City University Of New York and the City College of New York, in an interview on Democracy Now! April 13. "The slightest disturbance could set off a full scale melt down at three nuclear power stations—far beyond what we saw at Chernobyl."
Fukushima radiation contamination level is about 50 times worse than Chernobyl, but Japanese government still encouraged people to live in highly radioactive areas. For example:
Measurement of various location in Fukushima (Please refer the image map above) 757,000 Bq/kg 3,148,238 Bq/kg 3,430,900 Bq/kg 1,080,000 Bq/kg 1,320,000 Bq/kg 5,570,000 Bq/kg 5,700,000 Bq/kg 5,633,824 Bq/kg
Even Tokyo is very contaminated. Harajuku, Tokyo 20,000 Bq/kg Imperial Palace, Tokyo 110,000 Bq/kg
Also, an area in Minamisoma-city was measured at 0,95 mSv/h by an independent journalist Rei Shiva. This is an astounding radiation level. (Please see the Chart of radiation doses above) http://twitter.com/reishiva/status/24...
In Fukushima 35%, Kanagawa 40%, Tokyo 30% of children have so far developed thyroid abnormalities, all within 1.5 years and time it took for children to develop such symptoms is much shorter than what happened in Chernobyl.
Most people seems to believe what the Japanese government and TEPCO say, but there are cover-ups after cover-ups. They even manipulate the radiation monitoring level so that people might feel safe. To justify my comment, please also have a look at the video below. The monitoring data is cleary wrong as it is static or lowered as much as 60% less!
