Quote:mother in Saitama Prefecture who, in the absence of direct government support, arranged to have a sample of her daughterâ€™s urine tested. The test indicated that despite stringent efforts to protect her fifth grader from exposure to contaminated food and airborne radiation, the result was 0.4 Bq of Cesium 137 per kilogram of urine. Cesium 137, with a half-life of just over 30 years, is one of main radioactive isotopes released from the Fukushima Daiichi plant. â€œI felt a mixture of shock and a feeling that of course this is the caseâ€, laments the girlâ€™s mother.
A good read, the mother used bottled water for cleaning and purchased eggs in bulk from as far south as possible. This is just the beginning of a health and social nightmare.
