Radioactive Cesium far above legal limits found south of Tokyo

Alright, they said that Tokyo is safe! I never believed them! Today we hear that radioactive Cesium has far above the legal limits has been found south of Tokyo. Remember that the Fukushima plants are to the north of Tokyo. So common sense tells us that Tokyo is in right in the middle! Here is … Continue reading

No more Sushi! Radioactive contamination of fish spreading globally

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami knocked out cooling systems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant and, almost two months later, the nation is still struggling to prevent an atomic disaster. They say the situation is under control, but everyone knows that it could go either way at any time. Meanwhile, the discovery of radiation … Continue reading

Govt did not reveal high level radiation estimate. Do you know how high?

Source: NHK WORLD English. It has been learned that the Japanese government withheld the release of computer projections indicating high levels of radioactivity in areas more than 30 kilometers from the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The estimates were made on March 16th following explosions at the plant by an institute commissioned by the … Continue reading

The dangers foreseen from the Fukushima nuclear crisis

Here’s a very thought provoking peek at the dangers foreseen from the Fukushima nuclear crisis. At the press conference “The Dangers of Nuclear War” held at Montreal on March 18, 2011, Dr Helen Caldicott speaks about the dangers of nuclear power, from what happened at Chernobyl 25 years ago and the resulting situation in Europe … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

Radioactive Cesium found in breast milk of Tokyo women

A couple of days ago I analyzed the news about radioactive Iodine being found in breast milk of women in Chiba, just about 30 kms from the heart of Tokyo. I had stated that Tokyo is not safe from this risk, and it brings me no pleasure but immense sadness to report today that not … Continue reading

The whole truth about nuclear radiation found in breast milk of Japanese women

I suppose you would have read the news last week (April 21 & 22) about the risk of radiation to breast milk. In this article I bring to you my analysis of the situation, and the criticality of the matter. Before we proceed, let me remind you that it was not just radiation that was … Continue reading

Cesium contamination in Fukushima fish 5 times permissible level

Radioactivity exceeding safety limits has been detected in fish and spinach from Fukushima Prefecture, where the battle to stabilize a disaster-hit nuclear power plant continues. On Tuesday, 2,600 to 3,200 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium was detected in 2 samples of a fish species called the sand lance caught off Iwaki City. That’s 5 … Continue reading

Japanese government blocks monitoring of marine radiation

Not knowing/having enough data is one thing, and not allowing others to measure such data is a totally different thing. Here’s an account from someone who personally saw the government blocking attempts to measure the proper radiations in Fukushima waters where fish and seaweed is fetched from. Think about the huge conspiracy that’s underway! Read … Continue reading

Radiation Readings in Fukushima Reactor Rise to Highest Since Crisis Began

It’s one and a half month since the Japan Nuclear Crisis began, and while they tell us things are just getting better, here’s news that radiation readings in Fukushima reactor are at their highest since the crisis began. What’s more, this jeopardizes Tepco’s plans of cooling the reactor. Well, it looks like it would take … Continue reading
