Fukushima - the world's radiation nightmare
by Natural News Editors
(NaturalNews) Fukushima is Japan's and the world's radiation nightmare that will not go away in our lifetimes nor our children's or grandchildren's. The Fukushima nuclear power plant is hemorrhaging radioactive toxic waste into the ocean and though we are told not to panic, nor even to be casually concerned, the situation is dangerous and critical to future life on earth.

Ever since March 11, 2011, the damaged plant has been leaking tremendous amounts of radiation. Now Tepco, the operator of the damaged facility, says they have recorded spikes between 50-70 times above average readings in the gutters that pour water into a nearby bay.
The Nuclear Regulation Authority said February 22, 2015, that an alarm went off at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant signaling high radioactivity levels in drainage ditches. According to the NRA and plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co., the first alarm sounded at around 10 a.m., and another alarm 10 minutes later indicated much higher levels.
The levels of beta ray-emitting substances, such as strontium-90, measured 5,050 to 7,230 becquerels per liter of water between 10:20 a.m. and 10:50 a.m. Tepco requires radioactivity levels of groundwater at the plant discharged into the sea to remain below 5 becquerels. However, it was revealed that Tepco knew about the problem all the way back in May of last year and did not report it.
An official at the plant apologized, saying that, "the trust of the people in Fukushima is the most important thing," and that "we've been working with that in mind, but unfortunately, we have damaged that trust this time," according to Digital Journal. The situation at Fukushima is obviously much worse than authorities are leading us to believe. Newsweek reported on the continuing disaster saying, "The fallout from the Fukushima disaster is far from over. A staggering number of accidents has plagued the plant."
Strontium mimics calcium making it extremely dangerous to all life forms once it is absorbed. Local, national and international fury once again rises against TEPCO as this latest indication that the crisis at the plant is far from under control. Japan's top government spokesperson reiterated the government's long-standing mantra, "The situation is completely under control. Any negative impact of radioactive water on the environment is completely blocked." TEPCO was aware since April of last year and did nothing to prevent contaminated water from leaking directly out to sea.
