eSci: Unsafe Radiation Found Near Tokyo, Vast Area of Japan Contaminated, Japan Nuclear Incident Liveblogs, June 16, 2011:

Science Magazine reports that Japanese scientists have become so concerned about the health of their children that they have initiated their own radiation monitoring program and made their own maps. The results are shocking.

Parents in Tokyo’s Koto Ward enlisted the help of Tomoya Yamauchi, a radiation physicist at Kobe University, to measure radiation in their neighborhood. Local government officials later joined the act, ordering radiation checks of schoolyards and other public places and posting the results on their Web sites. An anonymous volunteer recently plotted the available 6300 data points on a map. And Yukio Hayakawa, a volcanologist at Gunma University, turned that plot into a radiation contour map.

It shows one wide belt of radiation reaching 225 kilometers south from the stricken reactors to Tokyo and another extending to the southwest. Within those belts are localized hot spots, including an oval that encloses northeast Tokyo and Kashiwa and neighboring cities in Chiba Prefecture.

Radiation in this zone is 0.4 microsieverts per hour, or about 3.5 millisieverts per year. That is a fraction of the radiation found throughout much of Fukushima Prefecture, which surrounds the nuclear power plant. But it is still 10 times background levels and even above the 1-millisievert-per-year limit for ordinary citizens set by Japanese law. The health effects of such low doses are not clear and are passionately debated. But it is known that children are more susceptible to radiation than adults, and few parents want to take chances with a child’s health. Besides, “The law should be observed,” Yamauchi says. Kyo Kageura, an information scientist at the University of Tokyo, says there should be a public discussion of the issue, “based on a scrupulous presentation of the data, including to what extent the 1-millisievert limit can be achieved.”

Elevated radiation levels widespread in eastern Japan, Smart Planet by David Worthington, June 17, 2011:

A “citizens’ map” of radiation levels is being maintained by a group of Japanese bloggers. Levels appear highest near Fukushima and toward its northwest. The vicinity around immediate southwest of the reactors shows elevated radiation, and a large pocket of contamination has settled further south in the outskirts of Tokyo.

      Japan’s TEPCO Suspends Cleanup at Fukushima Plant
      Published: Saturday, 18 Jun 2011 | 12:57 AM ET

      An operation to clean up radioactive water at Japan’s stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant was suspended on Saturday, hours after it got underway, when radiation levels began rising dramatically, the plant’s operator said.

      Tokyo Electric Power Company had undertaken the operation at the plant, disabled by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, to avert spillage into the sea of large, growing pools of radioactive water.

      A statement issued by the company, known as TEPCO, said the suspension, five hours after the operation began, was prompted by a sharp rise in radiation in a part of the system intended to absorb caesium.

      “At the moment, we haven’t specified the reason,” a TEPCO spokesman told a news conference. “So we can’t say when we can resume the operation. But I’d say it’s not something that would take weeks.”

      The official said teams working at the plant believed the radiation rise could be linked to sludge flowing into the machinery intended to absorb cesium.

      Another cause could be pipes surrounding it.

    I am ‘surprised’ that no data is forthcoming from Shizuoka, home to all that ‘hot’ tea. . .

    Much of the data on the map *is* from the government; it is the compilation of the data into a visual map that was done by the citizenry — power to the people!

    Tests show worrying jump in Fukushima radiation levels

    on 18/06/2011 10:58:25
    In Japan, a clean-up operation at the Fukushima nuclear plant has had to be abandoned after officials became alarmed by a jump in radiation levels.

    Staff working for the owners of the plant, Toyko Electric Power Company, were just five hours into the job when they noticed the rapid rise in radiation yesterday.

    Some 110,000 tonnes of contaminated water have built up during efforts to cool reactors hit by the March earthquake and tsunami.

    Japan may face more nuclear trouble
    Fri Jun 17, 2011 10:0AM

    Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant may spill more contaminated water into the ocean within a week if engineers fail to fix a glitch in a new clean-up system.

    “We are working on this with plans (to start the system) today,” Reuters quoted an official with Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), the operator of Fukushima plant, as saying on Friday.

    TEPCO says radioactive water has leaked from a facility used to absorb cesium due to a system malfunction.

    The official added that there will not be enough space at the nuclear plant to store more radioactive water by June 20 if they cannot fix the fault in the system.

    Following the twin disasters of earthquake and tsunami in March, TEPCO pumped large amounts of water into three reactors where the cooling systems had stopped working.

    The halt in the cooling systems operation sparked meltdowns, explosions and radiation leaks.

    TEPCO is planning to use a new system, which employs French and US technology, to decontaminate the nearly 110,000 tons of highly radioactive water that is stored at the plant. The decontaminated water can be re-used to cool the reactors.

    In early April, the utility dumped around 10,000 tons of water with low-level contamination into the ocean, drawing criticism from China and South Korea.

      It turns out that this infant mortality report was wrong.

      It came from Janette Sherman and Joseph Mangano, a physician an an epidemiologist respectively, and was based on statistics from the CDC.

      But they did a very dishonest thing. As it turned out, the mortality rate in the four weeks just before Fukushima was low compared with the running average. So they totally ignored the data earlier than that. If you look at all the data leading up to Fukushima, the mortality rate afterward is not at all greater, statistically, than before Fukushima. In fact, after Fukushima it’s slightly lower.

      I am relieved: my wife became pregnant in April and would have been exposed just as the babe was developing rapidly. This report scared us both – we were considering doing amnio to check for genetic damage.

      But these people lied. They are no better than Tepco or any of the rest who have lied to us. Did they think no one would find out? Shame on them. It hurts the cause of the antinuclear movement. The truth should be quite sufficient.

    Why have alarms not been sounded about radiation exposure in the US?

    ***Nuclear operator Exelon Corporation has been among Barack Obama’s biggest campaign donors, and is one of the largest employers in Illinois where Obama was senator. Exelon has donated more than $269,000 to his political campaigns, thus far. Obama also appointed Exelon CEO John Rowe to his Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future. Note: Illinois is the largest producing state of nuclear power in the United States, if it were it’s own country it would rank 7th in the world

    Dr Shoji Sawada is a theoretical particle physicist and Professor Emeritus at Nagoya University in Japan.
    He is concerned about the types of nuclear plants in his country, and the fact that most of them are of US design. “Most of the reactors in Japan were designed by US companies who did not care for the effects of earthquakes,” Dr Sawada told Al Jazeera. “I think this problem applies to all nuclear power stations across Japan.”***

    Re: NEI’s Shamful Attack On Researcher Joseph Mangano

    It’s a shame that the NEI, a biased nuclear industry front group, goes to such efforts to discredit the work of independent researchers like Joseph Mangano. You do the public a huge disservice.

    Mangano’s studies are peer reviewed in 26 medical journal articles. NEI is just opinion, and has NO JOURNAL ARTICLES. NEI seems to be practicing the ART OF DECEPTION, not Joseph Mangano.

    Mangano is to be commended for having the courage to stand up to bullies protecting polluters like NEI. Some of us know better than to accept biased spin from the nuclear industry and its defenders like that on your website.

    Mangano’s work is actually the continuation of a decades long effort by many eminent scientists who have determined that low dose radiation harms humans. In the 1950s, Dr. Alice Stewart of Oxford University found that an Xray to the abdomen of a pregnant woman doubled the chance that the child would develop cancer. After years of denial that atom bomb fallout was harmful, a 1997 study by the National Cancer Institute found that as many as 212,000 Americans developed thyroid cancer from fallout. And in 2000, the U.S. Energy Department found that workers in nuclear weapons plants suffered from cancer in excessive numbers. A blue ribbon National Academy of Sciences panel in 2005 concluded that ALL radiation is harmful, even low doses.

    Statistics used by Mangano are taken from state and federal cancer registries. Mangano’s statistics for communities close to our nuclear plant are indisputable, even though biased individuals with a political or profit agenda have attempted unsuccessfully to challenge them.

    The “statistical chicanery” of cancer data in our region was clearly done by our county and state health departments, not Joseph Mangano. The public outrage against the state health department deception was significant.

    It is our experience that health departments are controlled by politics. Politicians are controlled by the nuclear industry. We spent over a decade investigating independent research and reports of harms from nuclear power in general and specifically in our region. Most families in our region realize that radiation from the nuclear plant is a major factor in our documented health crisis.

    Really, it’s simple. Nuclear power plants routinely and accidently release a broad range of radionuclides into the air and water, which get into the soil, food, and people around them. Neither NEI nor NRC has independent substantiated data to determine the additive, synergistic, and harmful health impacts to people living in the region of nuclear plants. Radiation causes cancer and a broad range of other health harms. It’s not surprising that over 17 studies in the U.S. and Europe show higher cancer rates around nuclear plants, especially in children. To deny the overwhelming evidence is not credible.

    You claim NRC finds “no appreciable changes” near nuclear plants. Given the source of the unsubstantiated data used and NRC’s blind and dangerous allegiance to the nuclear industry, that’s not surprising.

    It is NRC and NEI that use a bundle of bad science (even no science), not Joseph Mangano People would have to dismiss all the independent studies and lose their common sense to believe nuclear plant radiation is not a major factor in increased cancers around them.

    Tepco Halts Water Decontamination as Cesium Absorption Limited
    By Kanoko Matsuyama – Jun 17, 2011 10:22 PM PT

    Tokyo Electric Power Co. halted a water decontamination system today after five hours because a cesium-absorption unit supplied by Kurion Inc. needed replacement sooner than expected.

    Tokyo Electric is investigating the cause and doesn’t know when it will be able to restart the system, Junichi Matsumoto, a spokesman for the utility, said at a news conference streamed over the Internet. The decontamination system uses technology from Kurion and France’s Areva SA.

    Tepco, as the utility is known, began the decontamination process at 8 p.m. yesterday as a part of its plan to reduce the amount of radiation in about 105 million liters (28 million gallons) of water in basements and trenches at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant. Tepco expects the volume of contaminated water to almost double by the end of the year.

    The system was halted at 12:54 a.m. after the level of cesium in the absorption unit reached 4.7 millisieverts of radiation, Matsumoto said. Such units generally need replacement at a level of 4 millisieverts, and the company had expected the unit to last about a month, Matsumoto said.

    Global Extinction Event
    By Don Nordin

    This is one of the best of a series of interviews with Leuren Moret on Fukushima by Alfred Webre which gives us a latest update and hits important high points.

    Of crucial importance to those of us living in the Pacific Northwest and Southwest of B.C., particularly along the coastal areas, is that we are inhaling up to 5 radioactive “hot particles” every day. A “hot particle” is generally a highly radioactive particle with a very long term half life that most often lodges in the lining of the lungs and causes constant local bombardment of one particular area of tissue which eventually will cause cancer in that area and faster in those with low immune systems. This means lung cancer to those victims. As well, cells passing near that particle through the bloodstream have their DNA damaged and over time this causes another threat to our health.

    On top of all that, there is now an admitted “melt through” in 3 of the Fukushima reactors. This means the radioactive pool has melted right through to the soil under the reactor buildings and radioactivity is now entering the groundwater. Does this mean that groundwater radiation will eventually seep into the ocean? For sure it means that those relying on groundwater for various uses are out of luck.

    Also, there is a continuing massive release of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean east of Fukushima which will irradiate the entire Pacific Ocean and then move with the Great Conveyor down toward Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica. Over time, the oceans of the world will be polluted. For us along the coast of North America it means that fish will soon be not safe to eat. So there goes the massive Alaska fishery and the B.C. coastal fishery. There goes another prime source of protein which is a necessary dietary element to sustain a healthy, disease free body. Further, the food crops of the entire North American continent will become irradiated, the higher radiation levels being nearer to the west coast. So thee goes the vegetarian alternative too.

    This just touches the “tip of the iceberg” of this extinction level event.

    Be advised to listen to this video interview which is abouit an hour long.

    Meaningful levels of radiation

    By MARKUS STROBL
    Berlin Sunday, June 19, 2011

    READERS IN COUNCIL

    Regarding the June 16 Kyodo article “Tokyo ups radiation checks to 100 sites”: I would like to inform you that the measured values reported in this article are meaningless unless you give a time that the values relate to, such as 0.06 microsievert per hour (which I assume you mean in this case). Otherwise, it’s not known whether the values are significant, normal or even low. Could you also state normal average levels for comparison?

    Tokyo, Jun 19 (Kyodo) Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission has acknowledged that its role of monitoring the country’s nuclear policy is one of the issues that need to be reevaluated.Expressing deep regret over inadequate efforts to enhance the safety of nuclear power generation in the wake of the nuclear crisis, Haruki Madarame, the chairman of the Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan, has also indicated that he does not cling to the notion that the safety commission must be kept as it is, though saying that its role of presenting basic ideas about nuclear safety “will never fade away.”
