Fukushima Daiichi water only lightly contaminated: report

Government offers details on radioactive water released into ocean


 

Japan’s government issued a report Friday detailing the specifics surrounding the discharge of over 10,000 metric tons of low-level radioactive water into the ocean. Neighbouring countries have expressed concern, and South Korea and China criticized Japan for not providing advance warnings of its plans, citing the potential environmental threats. The nuclear complex at Fukushima Daiichi released a total of 10,393 tons of radioactive water between April 4 to 10, the report says, which was made up of 1,323 tons of groundwater and 9,070 tons of seawater. The water exceeded legal limits by about 100 times, depending on the sample.

People are getting sick from radiation sickness. I found a good guide to radiation protection here: Radiation Safety
