Environment report urges nuclear decontamination
May 29, 2012
A government report says a more solid system to decontaminate the fallout from the nuclear accident last year must quickly be put in place.
It says the fallout is worrying people not only in Japan but also around the world, so quickly reducing the effects it will have on human health and on the environment is an urgent task.
To promote measures to reduce low-dosage exposure, the report says the government and experts should speak directly with residents and provide information about any negative health effects that they may be exposed to.
