Contamination Outside Fukushima, Asia Pacific Journal by Matthew Penney, September 4, 2011:

http://japanfocus.org/events/view/112

The above link leads to an interesting article that may show how severe the Fukushima nuclear crisis really is, as opposed to how the nuclear industry and government wants the public to see it. Fukushima is still emitting massive amounts of radiation, on a daily basis, and it seems to be building up throughout the entire country of Japan. 

In this case, a mother in Tokyo bought only food from the southernmost islands of Japan, furthest away from Fukushima, and used only bottled water, plus washed her clothes, walls and floor daily. Despite this, her daughter showed levels of toxic and radioactive cesium in her urine. 

The following are live links that readers can click on to read other articles that may illuminate the issue and problems faced by Japanese parents. 

  1. Residents’ urine now radioactive, measuring at least 3 millisieverts in all 15 people tested June 26, 2011
  2. All 10 children tested in large city 60 km from Fukushima meltdown have radioactive urine — “High possibility” that children in and near city exposed to internal radiation June 30, 2011
  3. Tokyo: Radioactive cesium detected in 53 of 56 samples — Average of 30,032 Bq/m², near Chernobyl’s “Radiation Protection Area” levelsAugust 20, 2011
  4. Radiation Survey: Tokyo neighbor cesium approaching levels found in Fukushima — Chiba incinerator dust at 70,800 Bq/kg August 29, 2011
  5. Doctor near Tokyo attributes symptoms to radiation exposure: We have begun to see increased nosebleeds, stubborn cases of diarrhea, and flu-like symptoms in children August 18, 2011
