Professor Tatsuhiko Kodama goes on to explain in detail the medical risk to those exposed to radiation, the challenges for decontamination and how lack of action by the Diet has made the situation worse.
A number of points from the English transcript found here.
“When we research the radiation injury/sickness, we look at the total amount of radioactive materials. But there is no definite report from TEPCO or the Japanese government as to exactly how much radioactive materials have been released from Fukushima.
So, using our knowledge base at the Radioisotope Center, we calculated. Based on the thermal output,
it is 29.6 times the amount released by the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
In uranium equivalent, it is 20 Hiroshima bombs.”
Please note : as is known at present, the situation is much worse ! Learn more on
“What is more frightening is that whereas the radiation from a nuclear bomb will decrease to one-thousandth in one year, the radiation from a nuclear power plant will only decrease to one-tenth.”
“As to the food inspection, there are more advanced survey meters than germanium counters, such as semiconductor imaging detectors. Why doesn’t the Japanese government spend money in utilizing them? After 3 months, the government has done no such thing, and I am shaking with anger.”
