Fukushima nuclear radiation more than 40 Hiroshima atom bombs

The Chernobyl explosion released about 400 times more radiation than the U.S. atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima. Hundreds of thousands were sickened and once-pristine forests and farmland still remain contaminated.

Let’s, for a moment, agree that the Fukushima Nuclear Crisis released only 10% of radiation than Chernobyl did, as quoted by the Japanese agencies. That amounts to 40 times more radiation than the U.S. atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima. And that is what has already been released. There will be much more released over the months until the reactors are fully under control. We’re talking about more and more radiation spewing out for more than 9 months from now!

People who are familiar with the health problems in Hiroshima and Chernobyl do not need any further explanation.

Radiation has the power to distort the basic building blocks of life — DNA.

The cancer rate in Hiroshima and Nagasaki remains at a number far higher than elsewhere, sixty-six years later. And, mind you, it is a fact that radiations from an atom bomb dissipate much faster than radiations from a nuclear plant, which last for a much longer duration.

As for Chernobyl, children whose parents weren’t even born back then, contract illnesses and diseases related to environmental radiation exposure in the area, even to this day.

So, what is the safety that we are talking about here 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.
