Some experts such as Dr. Caldicott MD, are saying this disaster is 3 to 5 times worse than Chernobyl.  Why? 

There have been three melt throughs of three different nuclear reactors at Fukushima, and there are some very hot radioactive areas around this nuclear plant. A US radiation measuring plane went up and measured 3 Million -14.7 Million Bq over Fukushima province. The evacuation areas where people were taken out by force and with no choice around Chernobyl measured only 555,000 Bq.

The contamination areas around Fukushima are orders of magnitude much worse than areas around Chernobyl, but the Japanese government is urging people to move back into these areas, claiming that the radiation is 'not harmful' or 'safe'. They are taking some measures to decontaminate small areas, with very limited success. Most areas that have been decontaminated are quickly recontaminated, or are still above international radiation safety standards.   

50% of rice grown in Japan historically grows in Fukushima Province, where the radiation levels are the highest in the nation. Only spot checks are performed on rice grown for radiation.

No one knows how to end this crisis. We are in the middle of a medical catastrophe, according to Dr. Caldicott MD. They should be measuring ALL food and water, but they are not. What they are doing, is artificially elevating 'safe' levels of radiation in food and water, milk and other consumer items. No other country has adopted these artificially high 'safe' levels that the Japanese government recommends. Of course, any food or water that tests lower than this very high government level is labeled 'safe'. 

Evacuations are not happening. The Japanese government should be measuring radiation all over Japan, but that is not happening. They should be measuring the air.  No radiation is safe. Every dose adds to the risk of cancer. Over 30% of children in Fukushima province showed radioative iodine in their thyroids, which puts them at extreme risk of thyroid cancer.
