Ms. Kazuko Kawai, Founder of Voices for Lively Spring: Shizuoka [350 kilometers SE of Fukushima Daiichi] is also contaminated. And I’m personally from Shizuoka. When I’m there for 3 months or 4 months, I start getting very sick. Last February, I started bleeding in the nose. I have to go out of Japan for 10 days to get recovered. So there is a health problem in Shizuoka as well.

    According to a chart from ratical.org,

    nose bleeds occur during radiation exposure of 250-600 rems(whole body)

    http://www.ratical.org/radiation/NRBE/NRBE8.html

    • Their chart is based on short term (time) exposure.
      (pretty sure)

      Long term low dose 'fluctuating' exposure we don't really know, except to say that it's not good. (obviously)

      What 'low dosing' does and how different people are effected we will no doubt find out in the coming months and years.

      I did find this paragraph very interesting.

      NOTE:
      " By sharpening our perceptions more subtle radiation effects can often become observable where once they went unnoticed."

      "For example, a series of X-rays received by a young child may cause temporary depression of the white blood cells, and ten days to two weeks after the exposure the child will get influenza or some other infectious disease. Ordinarily the parent views the two events as unconnected."

      I did not know that. Wow!

      • jec jec

        No info on children and xrays..but in dogs.. We tested male dogs' sperm levels pre and post hip xray. The sudden drops in the animals from over 1M to under 300,000 was a shock. And the results were found after just one xray. Levels came up several months later..but the test was eye opening. We are now shielding our dogs during xrays. One example, but think about it, and what could happen to our children. Just saying..

      Hamaoka Nuclear Power Plant Unable To Remove Damaged Fuel Rod for 17 Years (1994)
      “SHIZUOKA (Kyodo) — Chubu Electric Power Co. revealed Thursday it has been unable to remove a spent fuel rod that was damaged in an accident 17 years ago from its Hamaoka nuclear power plant in Shizuoka Prefecture.
      “While spent nuclear fuel is normally sent to the reprocessing plant in Rokkasho, Aomori Prefecture or elsewhere, the damaged rod remains inside the fuel pool of the plant’s now decommissioned No. 1 reactor, in a special container, it said.The company said it had asked domestic research organizations and foreign nuclear fuel firms to take it but to no avail, and is still pondering how to get the rod outside in the absence of clear government rules on how to dispose of damaged fuel that requires more delicate handling.
      “Chubu Electric denied the same day that it had urged employees and workers at the Hamaoka plant to express support for its so-called pluthermal nuclear power generation project in a government-sponsored promotion event in 2007 when it let them know the event would be held in advance….”

        "’Pluthermal’ is a Japanese word which combines two English words, ‘plutonium’ and ‘thermal’. Pluthermal refers to the utilization of 'plutonium' fuel in commercial ('thermal') nuclear power plants. The fuel is commonly referred to as plutonium uranium mixed oxide fuel, or MOX fuel. Japanese government policy calls for electric utilities to use MOX fuel in 16-18 nuclear power plants by the year 2010….”

      “Hamaoka, which has been described as the world's most dangerous nuclear power facility because it sits on two geological faults, was to be the first site in Japan for the delivery of mixed oxide (Mox) nuclear fuel made at the troubled Sellafield Mox Plant.
      “If the Japanese premier gets his way, however, Hamaoka will be shut long before Sellafield is ready to fulfil its only definite order for Mox fuel. This would torpedo the entire rationale for building and opening the £498m Sellafield Mox Plant, which was to fabricate hundreds of tonnes of Mox fuel for Japanese reactors….”

      MOX fuel rods used in Japanese Nuclear Reactor present multiple dangers
      “….Six months before the Japanese earthquake, Alvarez told DCBureau.org the idea of MOX fuel does not add up anymore. “They are largely overtaken by events and the system is just ill-equipped, unable, structurally fixed into decisions that don’t make much sense anymore…The only prospect that you have here, which you should not dismiss, is that it has the potential of rendering a large amount of plutonium into a form that makes it extremely useful to reuse. And that was the original intent of the MOX program. It was not meant to be a way to generate energy and make money. Because the money is losing, this plutonium has negative value. They probably know this might not work and cause problems to reactors, and they might shut down reactors and lose money…..”

        Thanks WL…every resource is welcome. That is an excellent list of places in Japan suffering severe nuclear fallout.

        It's helpful to keep in mind two modern radiation units are grays and Sieverts as opposed to some of the archaic units.

        Here is a brief but excellent description of how they complement the quest to measure radiation from nuclear sources:

        " Gray

        The IS unit for the energy absorbed from ionizing radiation, equal to one joule per kilogram. An absorbed dose of one gray is equal to the absorption of one joule of radiation energy by one kilogram of matter.

        The gray is the correct unit to use when you wish to monitor energy absorbed per unit mass.

        Sievert

        The IS unit for the amount of ionizing radiation required to produce the same biological effect as one rad of high-penetration x-rays, equivalent to a gray for x-rays.

        It measures the radioactive dose equivalent.

        One sievert is equal to one gray multiplied by a relative biological effective factor, Q, and a factor that takes into account the distribution of the radiation energy, N.

        The sievert is the correct unit to use when you wish to monitor the biological danger of radiation.

        SP: Here are a couple of real world medical examples for layman understanding:

        10 to 30 mSv equals a full-body CT scan

        typical medical dose for a solid epithelial tumor ranges from 60 to 80 Grays

        • Sickputer

          It would be nice if we had access to some current absorbed rates at the MPs (Monitoring Posts) at Fukushima NPP. Those data recordings in the red that are sky high (89μGy/h at MP7) are one year old. That reading is over 2 grays a day.

          Still… the current Yamada Futaba Town reading of 21 μGy/hr (or about a half a gray a day) is significant. The town is very close to Fukushima Daiichi so it's not surprising. Located in the permanent evacuation zone….Futaba Town will never be inhabitable in this century. Maybe not this millennium.

          But you have to wonder if the radiation is so bad there…what is it like inside the Daiichi megaplexe? The workers there must be maxing out their annual maximum radiation exposure in days if not hours.

    Thanks anne! More thoughts on Shizuoka. I don't know if debris-burning there was eventually given the go-ahead, but whether it was or wasn't, there's a bunch of reactors on the opposite coast, at Tsuruga, Mihama, Ohi and Takahama. Upwind, at least in winter.
    Fukushima has rightly drawn a lot of attention, but Japan is so riddled with nukes I find it hard to believe baseline radioactivity almost everywhere hasn't been affected, as well as people's health.

  • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

    I read one comment after a video on youtube that said that Japan was all underwater 11,500 years ago. With the ocean rising, and all the NPPs next to the ocean, there is only tragedy ahead. The horrible people who say that nuclear power is the answer to climate change are as usual saying the opposite of the truth.

    Psychopaths have to keep on killing even if it means their own deaths.

        WindOrSolarPlease. I could be wrong, but I think I read somewhere that they think that only they will be reincarnated as the privileged few. An unfounded belief because the world will be covered in radiation. I think they believe that they will then be able to handle the radiation. Again completely unfounded.

    Poison that makes the world sick, is what nuclear is.

  • sunpower

    Thanks to Anne for all the info on Hamaoka. WE learned that they have had damaged fuel rods there already. Maybe the venting from 'episodes' at the site is what makes people sick there, more than Fukushima?
    I learned too that recently some sea water ruined a reactor. That is great news for the people in that area. I remember after Daiichi melted, but before Tepco admitted what was happening, they sent sea water into the reactors saying it was in desperation because to do so would ruin the reactors. If sea water is the answer, there is a way out of doubt today, to pump in sea water to all the reactors in Japan immediately to prevent any accidents from happening, which only salt water can do. If the rust shuts them all down, the safety margin will be like never before. I bet the sickness in Shizuoka lets up following the sea water nukular enema.
