The "temporary safe limit" for radiation in food and beverages in Japan has been set to levels higher than the international legal limits for nuclear waste. Infant beverages have been set twice as higher as the nuclear waste limit and for children and adults between 3 to 4 times the nuclear waste limit. In food the limit has been set up to 20 times international nuclear waste limits and of course all of these levels are hundreds of times higher than legal limits allowed in food in beverages of other nations around the world.
Yet, Japanese officials continue their campaign of lying to the public, as you'll see in the video below, to convince the people these limits are safe.
Some 45 per cent of 1,080 children under 15 from the Japanese Fukushima Prefecture have tested positive for thyroid exposure to radiation, a nuclear watchdog report says. The screening was performed by Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission between March 26 and March 30 in the wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, the independent body said on Tuesday. Among those who tested positive, the degree of exposure was measured at 0.04 microsieverts per hour or less in the majority of cases. The maximum measured was 0.1 microsieverts per hour in a one-year-old. The government-established threshold for further investigation is 0.2 microsieverts per hour, so no emergency probe will be undertaken, officials said. Show Less
