Ryugo Hayano, Tokyo University professor:

After the Chernobyl accident, also the percentage of internal contamination decreased.

But then it went up again after 5-10 years.

We have to make sure it doesn’t happen here in Fukushima.

    How at the speed you are proceeding the decay of radioactive material will be faster.
    Your own time line is much longer than 5 to 10 years.

    Only way to stop the continuous spreading and leaking of radiation is for scientists to figure a way to contain the corium. Good luck.

      It putting "contain" and "corium" in the same sentence an oxymoron? Double good luck.

      If I'm not mistaken isn't the portion of Earth's atmosphere able to support life only about 7 miles, maybe even less than that?!! One of the things that stands out for me personally is that the plumes had differed from Chernobyl's-where the initial, large release plume went up really high as opposed to Fukushima's "ground-hugging" plume(s) which stayed dangerously close to sea level and then the ground after making landfall and definitely stayed highly concentrated well beyond my locale where the air was "hot" & "heavy" and the constant links to the websites & media venues that were still credible and had mostly-accurate data and articles were telling of the extreme levels of the airborne radiological plumes that "short-lived" ATM's that displayed estimated simulation models of the plumes,timelines,separate individual datasets/simulations for each of the isotopes with ground deposition density levels across the board from release site to the US East Coast and people still acted as if I was telling "jokes" on April Fool's Day 2011 & "rolling their eyes",etc. By that 1st week of April I was already feeling sick from what I "sensed" and KNEW was in the air and "tasted" every morning as "metallic" in nature and accompanied by a sore throat, probably from the same black,gritty crap that the frequent Spring rains left a coating on the white cargo van I had at the time that was hard to wash off[?!]. The shit is part of us now!!~ 😐 ~**

    No one is even MEASURING for internal contamination. And then they are going to PREVENT it? HOW? People are breathing in plutonium hot particles from the air even on the West Coast of the U.S.! And who said that contamination has DECREASED thus far? Until there is a funded testing program, this does not MEAN anything.

  • We Not They Finally

    This man does not even know what he personally has breathed in. He probably wants to do the right thing and it's very sad, but any assumption of a decrease thus far does not even measure that wide swath of space called "reality." It's CUMULATIVE — all of it from the start!

    once the red forest died and burned, the isotopes were unbound

    Technology has outstripped mankind's ability to handle it. For instance, because of Autocorrect, the time travel app I made for my Ipod only wants to send me into the furniture.

    We went to the snow in late mid March 2011 East of Sacramento… We took our dog…. He was having a grand time and so were we… I was somewhat concerned about it then… But, believed the reports of safety to a point then… I looked down and my dog was chomping on the snow and his body was covered with it…. It was then, I realized the horrible metallic taste in my mouth… We left immediately… The taste lingered for weeks… Went home found the maps of deposits of radiation and high elevations were super high… Have Becky and I are older… And we had discussed the risks… The dog didn't have a say still feel bad about that…

    In Chernobyl, 5-10 years after, the RESULTS were showing from what they had ALREADY inhaled or ingested 5-10 years earlier! But even thyroid disorders took 4-5 years, whereas in Fukushima, it's already full-blown NOW! Meaning that the internal contamination has been WORSE FROM THE START. And they cannot "prevent" what has already happened. All they can do is what should have been done in the first place: Evacuate all of Northern Japan, including the greater Tokyo area. And government and TEPCO together have to provide ongoing medical care! They did it, they're responsible.
