Tokyo food supply chain contaminated – Risk of cancer

Lessons learned from Chernobyl and the Three Mile Island

Glatstein and colleagues reviewed the published literature on short- and long-term health risks associated with radiological accidents, including the 1979 event at Pennsylvania’s Three Mile Island and the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine.

Reference: Medical News: Response Plans Needed for Radiation Disasters – in Public Health & Policy, Environmental Health from MedPage Today.

“Iodine-131 entering the food chain does pose a danger, since the element accumulates efficiently in the thyroid gland and is known to cause cancer.”

“Long-term cancer risks can be managed only by reducing contamination and exposure as much as possible. Once a person has received a dose of radiation, subsequent development of cancer is a matter of probability.

In Tokyo, people are consuming food contaminated with nuclear elements

There have been a number of accounts of the food supply chain in Tokyo being contaminated. Well, why just Tokyo, increase in radiations from Japan’s nuclear crisis have been seen even in 20 cities in the US, far across the pacific on the other side of the world. But the risks in Tokyo are much higher as radiations are found in air, water, fish, vegetables.

In essence, people in Tokyo now breath, eat and drink nuclear matter. It takes time for cancer to develop, and it would be too late to do anything about it then. Tell me, how do you feel about being in Tokyo?

About Tokyo Nuclear Watchdog

I'm a foreigner living in Tokyo, Japan, and I have been impacted by the Japan Nuclear Crisis of March 11, 2011. Though the impact of the massive earthquake that was followed by an even more disastrous tsunami, which led to the nuclear crisis, was not as disastrous in Tokyo as it was around the Fukushima Nuclear Plants, there has not been sufficient data to prove that Tokyo is safe from nuclear radiation as is being portrayed by the authorities. This site aims at erring on the side of safety while it keeps a close watch on the crisis and how it affects those residing in and around the Tokyo (Kanto) region. Remember that the proper truth about radiation may only come out 5 or 10 years later when a classified file gets leaked out, but that will be too late for you to do anything about it if you were in Tokyo and had been through those radiation then (which as of this writing, is NOW). Do not believe the media. Trust your instincts, and make your own well-informed decisions about your safety. This site is here to help you, and your contributions are most welcome.
