Consequences of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster

In Japan, the external radiation always causes unacceptable health risks for hundreds of thousands of citizens 

1 / Many people still live in territories heavily contaminated 

During the first weeks after March 11, 2011, deposits of radioactive cesium were widespread in Japan. 
Only the population living in the circle of 20 km around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was evacuated during the first days of the disaster, but the fallout has affected a large territory, well beyond the 20 km zone and limits of Fukushima Prefecture. Depending on weather conditions, contaminated air masses moved hundreds of kilometers and precipitation (rain and snow) have aggravated the deposition of radioactive particles in soils and vegetation.
