FUKUSHIMA UPDATE 5.22.11


Since 11 March 2011, a different kind of toxin began making its way through the veins of common food sources after TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) completed a planned dumping of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean at the site of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.  Spinach and other green leafy vegetables, milk, and water have been found to have iodine-131.  Fish, cows’ milk, and water have been contaminated with cesium-137.

As the Japanese government and TEPCO struggle to bring the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant under control, a group of pensioners has decided to put their lives at risk to save younger people from radiation.

--


TEPCO has finally admitted that Reactor #1 has experienced a meltdown event that may have breached the primary containment vessel. Further, truly alarming levels of radiation are now being reported in and around Tokyo.

Infrared emissions above the epicenter increased dramatically in the days before the devastating earthquake in Japan.

Your news of Japan sickens me... I am so sorry for Japan and all the people there.

Will you be bringing your daughter and granddaughters to your house again? How are the radiation levels there?

Kasumi and the girls should be returning soon, for further planning; will post here as things materialize... As to the radiation, we've been spared, pretty much-- our neighbor has a geiger counter, so we can stay aware, though his battery just ran out and apparently it's hard to find a geiger counter battery-- another thing I never knew...

Over here geiger counters flew off the shelves.. hardware stores couldn't keep it in stock.. officials said even if they could measure radiation- what could be done? a now win situation.
