Radiation doses vary with evacuation patterns

  • Radiation doses vary with evacuation patterns

    FUKUSHIMA--Evacuation patterns affected the differing levels of external radiation to which residents of Fukushima Prefecture were exposed in the first four months of the crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, according to the prefectural government.

    The difference was seen in interim results released Tuesday of health checks on all residents of the prefecture.

    Just after the crisis began, the government initially failed to disclose data from the System for Prediction of Environmental Emergency Dose Information (SPEEDI), which was used to analyze how radioactive substances would spread from the nuclear plant.

    The latest data renewed the anger of affected residents, who said they would have evacuated elsewhere had they been aware.

    webmasters comment:

    There we go. They had all the information, they knew it was melting, they knew where it was going and yet they decided to withhold the information from the public, not to distribute iodine, etc, so the facade of  safe and clean nuclear power could continue.

    The exposure values stated are "external exposure" values and they don't reflect the actual effect on the health of these people .

    The japgov actions were deliberate following the implementation of the information act, where all of the info was first to be confirmed from the japanese government.  All the people suffering from radioactive fallout were left in the cold intentionally, served as offerings on the altar of Holy Uranium Cultists.
