#Radiation in Japan: 60,000 Bq/kg Cesium in Riverbed Soil in Fukushima


  • #Radiation in Japan: 60,000 Bq/kg Cesium in Riverbed Soil in Fukushima

    On November 15, the Ministry of the Environment announced the result of the survey of the radioactive material density in bottom soil in 193 locations in rivers, lakes and dams in Fukushima Prefecture. Radioactive cesium was detected in almost all locations, with the highest density of 60,000 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium in the riverbed soil in the Ota River that runs through Minami Soma City, which was designated as "evacuation-ready zone" after the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident.

    ... ..

    The provisional "safety" standard for drinking water in Japan is 200 becquerels/liter of radioactive cesium. (For reference, in Belarus, it is 10 becquerels/kg.)...

    Just a thought here. Floods? Typhoons? Landslides? Dam failures? Nature & habitat, that nourished Japan is now their enemy.

    What more does it have to be before world realizes that the nuclear industry is selling one thing only. Death.
