Do you know what’s the most radioactive place on Earth?
It’s Fukushima, Japan.
But the U.S. media have the short-attention span of those with ADD (attention deficit disorder) and evidently decided that the damaged nuclear plant in Fukushima Daiichi no longer warrants their coverage.
But the news from Japan just gets worse and worse. The latest is that strontium-90 has been found in Yokohama, 165 miles south of Fukushima. Here’s what Wikipedia says about strontium-90:
Strontium-90 is a “bone seeker” that exhibits biochemical behavior similar to calcium, the next lighter Group 2 element. After entering the organism, most often by ingestion with contaminated food or water, about 70–80% of the dose gets excreted. Virtually all remaining strontium-90 is deposited in bones and bone marrow, with the remaining 1% remaining in blood and soft tissues. Its presence in bones can cause bone cancer, cancer of nearby tissues, and leukemia. Exposure to 90Sr can be tested by a bioassay, most commonly by urinalysis.
Below is a report from Yokohama, “Breaking News: Tokyo on the edge,” posted by Mochizuki on October 10th, 2011:
Strontium 90 was measured in Yokohama, Kouhokuku. (5 mins by car from my apartment.)
In the simplest put, it’s over.
The amount was 195 Bq/kg.
Detected by a university staff teaching engineering, so the measurement is trustworthy.
It has nothing to do with the historical world-wide nuclear test, because it was measured on the roof of and apartment, which was built only 5 years ago.
Now the test result was sent to Yokohama city government.
Yokohama city government is supposed to pretend to re-measure it and say it’s not a harmful amount at all.
The location was randomly chosen. The person who randomly found it is very upset and confused.
It means strontium 90 is already all around in Tokyo area.
Ministry of Education and Science found strontium 79km area on 9/30.
They kept asserting Plutonium and Strontium don’t fly further than 80km because they don’t want them to fly so much.
Professor Nojiri Mihoko (HIGH ENERGY ACCELERATOR RESEARCH ORGANIZATION, KEK) stated, plutonium, uranium, they never fly further than 20km by such a little explosion.
If she is right, Strontium must have taken a cab.
However, Yokohama is 245km away from Fukushima.
Tokyo is closer to Fukushima actually.
Strontium 90 is soluble in water. It is easily taken by plants and it causes leukemia when people eat vegetables or seafood.
To prevent you from having thyroid disease ,you need to take iodine, such as seaweed. (Profoundly bad idea to eat any seafood or sea vegetables from Japan for the next 24,000 years, at least)
In addition to Iodine-131, seaweed from the waters around Japan contains Strontium.
Choose one of two. Thyroid cancer or leukemia?
On 9/30/2011 – Chief of the emergency radiation exposure protection team from National Institute of Radiological Sciences, Sugiura Shinsuke said, “Strontium doesn’t fly to Tokyo. It’s only cesium”
Assistant professor Nakagawa keiichi from UT radiology made a little pocket money to force us to be exposed to plutonium by telling us lie “Plutonium is very heavy, so it doesn’t fly out of the plant area.”
