Fukushima Japan nuclear power plant radiation leaks reaches lethal levelsHealth, World news Friday, March 14th, 2014
A magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck wide areas of western Japan early today just 3 days after the 3 year anniversary of the March 11, 2011 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that caused catastrophic explosions and damage to the Fukushima nuclear power plant. Today’s earthquake stuck less than 57km NW of the Ikata Nuclear Power Plant. Shikoku Electric Power Co. said no abnormalities were detected in measuring instrument data at its Ikata nuclear power plant in Ikata, Ehime Prefecture. That is what the nuclear electric power company operators at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant first claimed on March 11, 2011 when the 9.0 earthquake struck. Reactors were shut down automatically after the earthquake but cooling system failures caused a partial nuclear meltdowns in units 1, 2 and 3: catastrophic explosions and radiation leaks in units 1 and 3 and a suspected explosion in unit 2. Radiation has been leaking, unabated for the past 3 years. According to Japan Radiation Maps from the Japan Institute for Information Design radiation levels for Fukushima have reached lethal levels – 127,000 Nanosievert per hour (nSv /h).
The sievert (symbol: Sv) is a derived unit of ionizing radiation dose in the International System of Units (SI). It is a measure of the effect of low levels of radiation on the human body. Quantities that are measured in sieverts are designed to represent the stochastic health risk, which for radiation dose assessment is defined as the probability of cancer induction and genetic damage. Doses greater than 1 sievert received over a short time period are likely to cause radiation poisoning, possibly leading to death within weeks. 127,000 nSv/h = 0.000127 Sievert per hour (Sv/h) or 1.113282 Sievert per year (Sv/y). The people of Japan are are not being exposed to the lethal 127,000 nSv/h ionizing radiation doses. They probably won’t be dying within weeks, however millions throughout the Pacific Ocean are now secretly being condemned to death from exposure to lethal dosages of radiation poisoning from Fukushima’s destroyed and leaking nuclear reactors.
The people of Japan will be spared a high death toll because Fukushima is located on its east coast and the deadly levels of radiation are being pushed away from land and Japan’s densely populated cities by the jet stream and Pacific Ocean currents to the Canadian and United States west coast and their densely populated cities.
For more than 3 years Canadians and Americans are being irradiated to death by the Fukushima nuclear reactor radiation leaks and not a word about it in any Canadian or U.S. newspaper or cable news networks or from our elected representatives, health officials, environmental protection agencies or emergency management agencies.
