Operators Admit Fukushima Radiation Levels Exceed 2 1/2 Times Announced

Enviroment

Fukushima plant operators are now admitting that the Fukushima radiation levels emitted from the disaster exceeds almost two and a half times the initial ‘estimate’ produced by Japanese safety regulators. The announcement comes after independent researchers exposed the true amount of radiation leaked from the plant back in October of 2011. The study revealed that significantly more radioactive caesium was released into the atmosphere as a result of the Fukushima explosion than many nuclear experts previously told the public.


Fukushima Radiation Levels: A Cause for Concern

The researchers from this study went against the official explanations (now confirmed as bogus by the operators themselves), and stated that the amount of radioactive isotope caesium-137 released at the height of the crisis was equivalent to 42% of that from Chernobyl. And that’s just the amount released at the height of the event. Many experts have actually labeled the Fukushima event to be even more catastrophic than the Chernobyl incident. Scientists who challenged the official report published their findings online in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, and authors state that Fukushima radiation levels truly began flooding the environment between being struck by the magnitude-9 earthquake on March 11th and being hit with a tsunami 45 minutes later.

Maxim Shingarkin, an expert in nuclear and radiation security, commented on the situation in Fukushima:

“In fact, this statement came with a big delay. The operating company deliberately concealed this information. The explanation is simple – the company is afraid that any checking by competent experts would reveal its inability to save the situation. Only recently, foreign experts founded a consultative body for the clean-up of the accident’s consequences. Moreover, the company is concealing the information about the amount of pollution of the environment.”

The plant now states that the meltdowns which took place at three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant released about 900,000 terabecquerels of radioactive substances into the air. But what happened to the majority of the radioactive contamination? According to the earlier report, 20% of the caesium-137 fell on Japanese land, and about 2% ended up on land outside the country. The remainder came down in the Pacific Ocean. Is it any wonder that ‘hidden’ deaths are now being reported by scientific research?

Health and radiation experts are now admitting that radiation stemming from the Fukushima disaster is leading to an unknown number of deaths as a result of increasing cancer rates around the globe. They are also stating that these deaths will be ‘hidden’ from the public eye due to a lack of accurate identification when it comes to targeting Fukushima-related cancer deaths.

It seems that Japanese government officials and plant higher-ups are now being forced to reveal certain details of the Fukushima disaster. From concealing integral information from the public to ignoring the real threat to public health, there is sincere lack of honesty and communication between many worldwide health officials and the citizens of the world. As information continues to surface, more and more truths will be expelled from the mainstream media and ‘health’ officials alike regarding the troubling event.

    Just wait until reactor 4 collapses….

    The information coming from TEPCO and the Japanese government has been suspect from day one. The rest of the world has a stake in the control and remediation of this disaster. We need honest information from credible sources. The world press and nuclear experts from around the world need to be more engaged in providing accurate information.

    This nuclear disaster is far from over. Now we find out that the spent fuel rod pools are as dangerous as the reactors. Will the next big earthquake cause a collapse of the the spent fuel rod pool at reactor #4?

    What the hell is wrong with these people, and why hasn’t someone with some level of authority had these lying piles of excrement fired and arrested? This is a world class disaster that needs serious efforts to control. The last thing it needs is a half-assed cover-up.

    Beery, maybe you should ask the same question about why the banksters are not being fired and arrested? Same reason, they own the courts and the news outlets.

    GE, the manufacturer of nuclear equipment owns over 50 news outlets, like: NBC, A&E TV, CNBC, MSNBC, USA Network, Telemundo, Universal Studios, etc.

    Now, do you really think they want the truth to get out? They and the other 5 major owners control all of the news media in the Empire.

    I think they need to admit the real truth and allow individuals to test for levels themselves.

    Stephen, they do. You can buy a Geiger counter for less than the price of an Ipad and check the levels in your neighborhood. Smart people do not rely on someone else to think for them.

    This article is full of nonsense. “InfoWars”? Gimme a break…
