Nov 12, 2013 A nuclear subcontractor ordered workers at Fukushima to cover their dosimeters with lead to lower official levels of radiation would be reported; allowing workers to work longer hours inside the plant. By itself this is just an isolated incident that means nothing. 

According to Japan Times; "To facilitate the return of evacuees, the Nuclear Regulation Authority has approved a change in the way radiation doses are monitored around the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station that will effectively result in lower readings, but observers warn this could raise public mistrust. The change calls for basing monitoring on data from dosimeters held by individual residents.

Since dosimeters read only about 1/7th of the amount of radiation that is actually there, because they are much less sensitive than a good pancake style Geiger Counter, they will in effect, give the 'appearance' that radiation levels have dropped, when in actual real life, nothing has changed, and dangerous levels of radiation are still present. Basing outdoor radiation readings on dosimeters that are mainly hanging on the necks of people who spend all or most of their time indoors will further reduce radiation readings, in an artificial way. Radiation levels inside of homes are usually a small fraction of radiation levels outside.

Let's summarize, shall we? We know that dosimeters only measure a small amount of radiation that is actually there, on the order of 10% of real levels. Then indoor dosimeter readings may only be 10% of what the radiation levels are outdoors, which drops the radiation readings recorded by dosimeters again, by orders of magnitude.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could handle your debts that you owe to the bankers in this same way? Let's say that you owe $1,000,000 on your home to the bank. But with some fancy eraser work and some computer estimating that figures out algorithms, derivative values and future values of debt, plus your loss of income due to retirement, let's just say that you only owe $100,000 dollars, ok? Now let's do this same process again because you live indoors and hardly ever leave the house, and the computer will spit out that you only owe $10,000. This is the equivalent of what the Japanese are doing with their dosimeter readings and radiation levels.

Real radiation readings all the way down to Tokyo are the equivalent of $1,000,000, but they will only be reporting $10,000 dollars worth. 

This unethical and immoral way of announcing radiation exposure levels will guarantee that countless future generations of children in Japan will suffer from a wide variety of diseases and early death, just like children in Belarus, or other low level radiation contaminated areas.

NHK WORLD, Nov. 11, 2013: Experts call for change in radiation measuring [...] A panel of experts is urging the Japanese government to change the way it measures radiation exposure for evacuees from the Fukushima nuclear accident when they return home. [...] To date, officials have estimated exposure based on radiation levels in the environment. But the panel says they should measures exposure by equipping individuals with radiation monitors called dosimeters. Radiation measurements made by dosimeters tend to be one-third to one-seventh of readings estimated through environmental monitoring. [...] The panel also calls for assigning local government officials and health nurses as advisors in each community. [...]

Jiji Press, Nov. 11, 2013: [...] The proposal comes at a time when the government is aiming to lift the evacuation advisory for areas where annual radiation doses are estimated at 20 millisieverts or lower. [...] The new method is expected to help promote returns of evacuees as well as reduce costs for decontaminating areas tainted by radioactive fallout.

NHK Newsline, Nov. 11, 2013 (at 0:45 in): Readings on such devices [personal dosimeters] tend to be one-third to one-seventh lower than estimates based on environmental monitoring. [...] Radiation measurements made by dosimeters tend to be one-third to one-seventh of readings estimated through environmental monitoring. [...] “Individual monitor readings don’t necessarily reflect different radiation levels in a household.” -Fukushima evacuee

There is a consistent, steady, continuous effort to minimize the radiation readings. The effort to downplay and hide what is really going on both inside the Fukushima Daichi plant, as well as in Japan generally is working in the mass media, especially when it is repeated over and over again, in a propaganda like fashion. 

This latest attempt to lower the radiation readings through an unethical manner, in order to force residents to come back to towns that are highly contaminated, is a good example of just how desperate the nuclear industry, medical industry and government are to cover up the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster and pretend it never happened.
