A Tokyo newspaper reported on the comments made by Kawasaki City’s mayor regarding lunch items served to students including frozen tangerines (9.1 Bq/Kg of cesium) and canned apples (1.6 Bq/Kg of cesium), translation by Fukushima Diary:
It’s wrong to educate children to be conscious about this level of radiation. There is a risk of being hit by car, there is also a risk of being stabbed by passerby. Should we teach students not to pass by anyone ?
