Cesium-137 was found in urine of child near Tokyo, despite mother’s efforts at radiation protection, and despite the fact the government claims people living outside of the exclusion zone of Fukushima are likely to suffer adverse effects.

From japanfocus.org
Quote:mother in Saitama Prefecture who, in the absence of direct government support, arranged to have a sample of her daughter’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. “I felt a mixture of shock and a feeling that of course this is the case”, laments the girl’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.

Quote:Radiation in Food: Radish Boya to Set Its Own Cesium Standard

Radish Boya, an online grocer who first alerted Shizuoka Prefecture that one of the Shizuoka teas contained radioactive cesium exceeded the provisional limit by its own testing, is going to set its own standard for cesium in food and drinks that it sells, which is one-tenths of the national provisional standards.

From Yomiuri Shinbun (9/5/2011):

食品宅配サービスの「らでぃっしゅぼーや」(本社・東京)は5日、同社で販売する食品や飲料水などに対する放射性セシウムの自主規制値を設定したと発表した。

Radish Boya, a home delivery service of foodstuff headquartered in Tokyo, announced on September 5 that the company had set its own safety limit for radioactive cesium in food and drinks that it sells.

自主規制値は、コメや青果物、肉類が1キロ・グラムあたり50ベクレル、牛乳や飲料水が同20ベクレルで、いずれも国の暫定規制値の10分の1となる。

The company's safety limit for rice, vegetables and fruits, and meat is 50 becquerels/kilogram, and for milk and drinking water 20 becquerels[/liter]. They are both one-tenths of the national provisional safety limits.

 東北・関東甲信越の17都県を産地とする食品などは、入荷前に抜き取り検査を行い、自主規制値を超えるものは配達しない。同社は10万5000人が会員登録しているが、福島第一原子力発電所の事故以降、食品の放射能汚染に関する問い合わせが1万件以上あったという。

The company will conduct sample testing before it purchases the food items from 17 prefectures in Tohoku and Kanto, and will not deliver the items whose cesium content exceeds the company's safety limit. The company has 105,000 registered customers, and there have been over 10,000 inquiries about radiation contamination of food after the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident.

Things to keep in mind, before you rush to order:

*

Radish Boya does source from Tohoku and northern Kanto, including Fukushima, Miyagi, and Tochigi, and radioactive cesium has been detected in their testing though not exceeding the provisional safety limit or the company's own limit;
*

The testing is still a sample testing, though for now there's no practical way to test all;
*

It does participate in the campaign by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, "Let's help the disaster-affected areas by eating their produce!"

By the way, looking at the Ministry of Agriculture's site, they do seem to feed the government workers there with potentially contaminated vegetables and meat from the disaster-affected areas...

It just proves that ALL governments are the same. They will do and say ANYTHING to cover their own asses and the asses of their corporate masters.


We are expendable

Expert: Already hearing reports of kids suffering heart attacks — Beware deadly cardiac problems in children caused by Fukushima radiation


Pr Chris Busby on children’s heart attacks in Fukushima, radioactivebsr, September 11, 2011:

Summary of interview with Christopher Busby, expert on health effects of ionizing radiation

At :40 in

Yury Bandazhevsky, studied effects of cesium-137 on children in Belarus after Chernobyl
He found that children with just 20-30 Bq/kg of cesium-137 suffering cardiac arrhythmia (heart not beating properly) and were suffering heart attacks and dying
Not a question of cancer or leukemia (although that occurred as well), there were very high rates of heart disease in these children… manifesting heart disease usually only found in old people

That's awful AK. Children should not be having this type of thing go on. The nuclear industry is a tribute to TPTB inhumanity toward the rest of the population.

Quote:On this morning’s NHK “Sunday Debate” program, Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) Secretary-General Nobuteru Ishihara stated, “Geiger counters costing between 40,000 and 50,000 yen ($500-600) provide patchy measurements. We have to try and stop citizens from taking their own radiation measurements.”

Not sure if this is anything to do with fukushima radiation but I'll put here anyways.

My crabapple trees are shedding leaves in a very strange way

I don't like Alxander higgins much, he's a fear monger and a senstionalist. But I'm seeing other blogs mention it's time to evacuate Tokyo so thought I'd post it.
