(NaturalNews) In the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear power plant catastrophe, radiation levels are now rising in Tokyo's water supply, leading to near-panic among citizens there who have stripped the shelves bare of virtually all bottled water supplies. This was all set in motion by Tokyo officials finally admitting that radiation levels had risen in the water supply beyond the point of safe consumption by infants and toddlers (http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/512fa9fe-5527-11e0...).
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said in a Financial Times story, "...unfortunately, there is no question that radioactive substances are leaking into the atmosphere from the Fukushima nuclear power plant. Since it rained, it is possible that there will be an impact in many areas." (http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/512fa9fe-5527-11e0...)
This means for the citizens of Japan, this radiation nightmare is nowhere near over. And far too many of Japan's citizens seem to be just now thinking about where they're going to get safe drinking water. (The same non-preparedness mindset, by the way, is practiced by most Americans who live in large cities, too.)
Here's the latest on the Fukushima incident:
• Electricity has now been reconnected to all six reactors, but pumps are still not operational on Reactors No. 3 and 4. Japanese workers are using fire trucks to spray the spent fuel rods with water in order to prevent them from melting down (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB200014240527...).
• The FDA has banned the importation of milk, fruit and vegetable products from four regions near the Fukushima power plant (http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/pol...). Of course, the FDA doesn't mind Americans eating food irradiated in America, by the way.
• Japan is now facing the cold, hard truth that it did virtually nothing to prepare its citizens for a Fukushima-like catastrophe. While Japan is famous for drilling its citizens on earthquakes, its government never taught the citizens to prepare with extra food and water (just like the U.S. government doesn't either). (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/as...)
• It is now obvious that Japan willfully ignored the vulnerabilities of its Fukushima power plant, even as an earlier analysis revealed that the current catastrophe would have been the inevitable result of a tsunami scenario. The nuclear industry, you see, is much like the drug industry: Profits before safety. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB200014240527...)
