(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...).

• Levels of radioactivity in Tokyo's water supply have reached such high levels that parents are now being warned not to allow their babies to drink it (http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/worl...).

• Residents of Tokyo wiped out all the water supplies on store shelves across the city, engaging in a massive and sudden run on bottled water (http://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory?id=...).

• 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...)

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
