Travel Alert for Japan/Country Specific Infomation for Japan
Radioactive beef already sold and eaten in many prefectures in Japan,
The meat of cows was shipped from farms in Fukushima prefecture and
other prefectures having radiation contamination. As of 23rd July 2011,
the number of cows is 2600 or more.
The radioactive beef has been distributed to 46 prefectures, including
Hokkaido, Tokyo, Aichi, Osaka and Kochi, and some was consumed
at restaurants and homes.
The meat was sold at a supermarket chain in Tokushima and Kochi prefectures.
It has been found to contain 3400Bq/kg of radioactive cesium,6.8 times
the allowable level in Japan.
The meat of 42 cows shipped from the farms in Asakawa Town of Fukushima Prefecture.
The radioactive beef has been distributed to 28 prefectures, including Tokyo,
Chiba, Kanagawa,yamagata, Aichi, Gifu, Osaka, Kyoto, Ehime, Kagawa and Fukuoka.
As of 17, July 2011, in total, 143 cows which were contaminated with radiation
were shipped to 37 prefectures.
Major supermarket and department stores are involved in the selling of the
radioactive beef.The radioactive beef was used for school lunch at many schools.
It shows that the radiation inspection systems for foods are not working
effectively in Japan.
Even in the Fukushima Prefecture, the most seriously radiation contaminated
area, the radiation inspection systems are poor. In the other prefectures which
have hotspots, the Government does not conduct the detailed radiation
surveys to identify the radiation level and hotspot. Accordingly, there is no control
for the production and shipment of the daily and agricultural products to control
the prevension of taking the radiation contaminated foods.
The products in this area are shipped to the whole country and used by the
restaurants and homes, and for the production of the processed foods.
With this information, you can recognize the seriousness of the radiation
contaminated foods problem in Japan.
How the Japanese Government is so stupid in managing the nuclear disaster!
They do not prepare the forecast maps of the radiation on a daily basis.
They did not prepare the map for the Total Cesium Deposition.
They do not use the forecast maps of the radiation in measuring the radiation levels for
products, such as vegetable, milk, water, fish and other foods
They intentionally control the measured radiation level by pre-measurement procedures,
such as, washing the vegetable before the measurement, mixing the collected sample milk
with other area's milk. Under the international standards for the measurement, the Japanese
Gov't does not show the correct contamination figures for the foods.
They do not conduct the well planned measurements of grand level radiation and
soil radiation levels for the radiation contaminated areas, covering the Tohoku and Kanto regions.
For over one month after the accidents, they did not use the grand level radiation level in
deciding the evacuation areas.
They adopt the international safety standard of radiation dose level for nuclear facility workers as
the safety standard for kindergarten and elementary school kids.
The officials of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry have gotten a position in Tokyo Electric
Power Company after their retirement. Accordingly, the Ministry serves the Company, not for the people.
The Minstry controls the area of information on the nuclear accident being released by the Company.
Japan adopts the higher permissible level of radiation for foods:
In comparison to the international standards, Japan adopts the higher permissible level of radiation for
foods/drinks. Foods and drinks available in Japan will not be allowed in another countries for human use.
Vegetable: for Cesium
Japan: 500 becquerels/kg
USA: 170 becquerels/kg
Ukraine: 40 becquerels/kg
Japan: 200 becquerels/litter
USA: 0.111 becquerels/litter
WHO: 1 becquerel/litter
After April of 2012, permissible level of
radiation for foods will
Vegetable: for Cesium: 100 becquerels/kg
Tap water: for Cesium: 10 becquerels/litter
