The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

New danger of Fukushima radioactive and toxic contamination in small particles found

In a new report using estimated spread of highly toxic and radioactive particles has been reported in a new study. Looking at an area close to the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster zone throws some light on a previously ignored aspect of possible health effects.

Highlights

The distribution of Cs-rich microparticles emitted from the FDNPP is determined.

Cs-rich microparticles account for a significant fraction of FDNPP-deposited Cs.

The timing and source of the Cs-rich microparticle formation has been estimated.

Over the past 9 years, the nuclear industry has reported on the dose of radiation (as found in bananas) as the primary danger to the health and well being of the citizens of the Fukushima Prefecture and surrounding prefectures. Using debatable measuring techniques they tell us that there are no major health effects. The dose method of measurement itself has been widely debated among UNSCEAR members and the wider scientific community.

There has also been some debate on the problems with the internal contamination of humans and animals and resultant health effects.

The new study shows us that this debate has now moved further away from the biased claims of the nuclear industry sponsored experts and towards the more balanced risk assessment proponents.

First is the issue of micro (nano) particles that can bypass the Blood Brain Barrier and lodge in the brain and this too, is an issue to wildlife, livestock and fish health also, those consuming such produce. There may also be an issue concerning the consumption of plant matter so contaminated with these micro-particles.

It raises some issues on the decontamination efforts being done by the Japanese Government concerning the movement of contamination from highly polluted forests that will never be cleaned up for hundreds of years (concerning radioactive Cesium 137 particularly) to decontaminated areas as had been reported recently in the Japanese media and elsewhere.

More studies need to be funded by independent scientists to connect the different studies and connect them together to reach a greater understanding of the process`s involved concerning health and environmental impacts from nuclear disasters. These new findings add weight to the United Nations Rapporteurs concerns discussed in his report on Japan.

  2. There is a great deal of biocummulated aggregated cesium 137, in japan by now. Why always with the microparticle and nanoparticle spiels and studies? Show us the vid of busby, demonstrating cesium 137 in tokyo air filters. show us dr kaltofen results from measuring the black plutonium rich goop in tokyo. His measurements of high levels of cesium 137 , strontium 90 and other radionuclide from fukushimma to yokohama. They are hundreds of times worse than cherrnobyl at its worse. The microparticle fetish for these studies does not make sense. Microparticles probably cannot cross the blood brain barrier but cesium in dust dissolve in liquid in the lungs and can go anywhere in the bodies. Everything in Japan is contaminated. Water, air, food, soil. Contaminated by multiples, of the worst beta-gamma emitters, alpha-gamma emitters. Banana analogies are just rediculous in Japan. Bone up on gama spectrometers, scintillometry, independent research, and chemistry please. Things are far worse in Japan than people can understand.
