Fukushima Foul Up

Over a year after the nuclear accident triggered by a massive earthquake and tsunami contaminated large swathes of land in northeastern Japan, the future of the largely agricultural area and those who have been evacuated from it remain uncertain.

The Asahi Shimbun newspaper reported on Monday that residents will not be able to return to at least seven of the municipalities around the damaged Daiichi nuclear plant in Fukushima for at least five years.

According to a government report released on Sunday, it is estimated that six of the seven municipalities will have dangerous levels of radiation - above 20 millisieverts of radiation (mSv) per year - for a decade.


You think that has anything with Fukushima daiichi exploding during the accident? Oh, wait, that was only "hydrogen gas"  Nothing to worry about good citizen, those glow-in-the-dark radishes are nothing to worry about.
