Original Text from Zukunashi no Hiyamizu's blog :

Q. I am in my 60's office worker living in the west of Ibaraki prefecture. After 2011 the Great East Japan Earthquake, I was less worried about radioactivity effect for a while. At that time, I worked for a company in Tokyo.

The day in March 2011, I got back from a business trip for Kashiwa-city and I crouched down at Kanda station because of a heart pain. After that, I had also a nosebleed.

I simply thought that these were caused by infirmity of old age at first; however my skin was itchy which I had never experienced before.

In recent days, I read your blog and came to think that these might be caused by radioactivity. 

A few days ago, I bought a simple Geiger counter and found 0.23μSv/h at home. Now I am anxious to avoid internal radiation exposure. In conclusion, I wish you to put out a wealth of information about radioactive contaminations on your blog. Thank you.


A. Thank you very much for your comment. Now I am surprised very much that you found 0.23μSv/h at home!? That value means a high level contamination comparable in range to Higashi-Katsushika area including Kashiwa-city in Chiba prefecture.

Although I checked air dose rates of your town in the web-site named “Hakatte Geiger”, I did not find such a high value you measured.

I am just guessing that you would live in a single-family house. Now I recommend you checking to see if there are any contaminated spots in doors or not, especially around your house like roof and yard, and also you are in need of a thorough indoor cleaning. Dust cannot help but invading your house especially when there is a field around your house.

I confirmed that radioactive plume passed directly above your town from early in the morning to afternoon in Mar 15, 2011. I guess that just relatively-scarce radioactivity fluttered to your town because it was not raining. However at the same time, it is possible that radioactivity distributed in a patchy fashion around your town.

Although an early examination indicates that some spots have few contaminations in the west of Ibaraki prefecture, I do not think that all areas have always few contaminations, and also radioactivity has moved constantly day by day. 

This is my opinion that there is a suspicion of radiation exposure caused by breathing in the case of heart pain and nosebleed occurred in around Mar 15 and 22, 2011.

Would you have been giving a lot of attention to food and drink since those symptoms occurred? I would strongly recommend that you choose the ingredients of low-level radiation. If you would work still now, please stop going out to eat and pack your lunch.

Would your skin is still itchy? Beta-rays can be the cause of itchy skin. I guess you would already know that the United States carried out soil investigation and turned out that there was high level strontium in Kumagaya-city.

If it is itchy skin which touches bed linens, I suspect that beta-rays may make your skin itch. I would also strongly encourage you to consult with a doctor to prevent your health from deteriorating if you would notice certain symptoms. In case of angina, for instance, you would need to be careful not to do exercises stress your heart, and make an effort to lose weight in case of diabetes. Also it is very important that you have to consider moving them to uncontaminated place if you live under the same roof with infant children.

Anyway at the very beginning, you have to specify the spots of contamination and do thorough clean indoor. However, there are important reminders as follows;

1 Please wear a mask and goggle when you clean out the rooms.

2 You have to contrive ways to emit cleaner exhaust into outdoors.

Otherwise you may be exposed to radiation further more by cleaning up your house!

Please feel free to ask me any questions that you may have. Thank you.


Fieldwork 1

Original Text from Zukunashi no Hiyamizu's Blog : http://inventsolitude.sblo.jp/article/87473204.html

As far as my understanding goes, health damage is already serious over a vast area in Japan. My current concern is: how much more serious can this become?

What about the alpha and beta sources?
There is a fair amount of public data available on gamma radiation air dose rate, though not enough. Nowadays, gamma rays can also be easily measured with Geiger-Mueller counters by individuals. But when it comes to alpha and beta particles, we are still pretty much in the dark about the truth.

So I went out to do some fieldwork
I fear that the contamination by these two radiation sources will be the critical factor in the long run. Wanting to get even just a slight idea of the possible state of such contamination I decided to ask my pretty old survey meter to do one last job before its retirement and headed out. I went to an area where I always find a high air dose rate when I go walking. To begin with I measured the air dose rate at more than 1m above the ground. The counts per minute were high.

Off scale
In order to measure the beta sources with my survey meter I need to approach the end of its tube-shaped sensor to within touching distance of the target area (the sensitivity has gone down with age and anyway that's the design).
So I put the end of the sensor to within touching distance of the ground just to test for beta radiation sources which have a short flying distance (to avoid contamination of the sensor, I had covered the totality of it with a thin plastic bag).
The counts jumped up instantly and went off the scale. Because of its age, my survey meter is extremely sensitive to differences in temperature. Thinking that the wind might have cooled it down suddenly, I raised the range of the scale, reset it and waited for it to settle.

Second measurement: It went off the scale again. So I raised the range for the second time and re-measured. Off the scale yet again. One of the photos of the day shows the scale limit at 3kcpm. So the dose rate was above 3kcpm.

I moved elsewhere and put the sensor next to the ground to check if it was just my survey meter acting old. The sensor only reacted sharply when it was within the red circle of the following photo. The dark patch on the ground is my shadow.

I acknowledge that the figures of my survey meter are not totally reliable. As I said its sensitivity is down and it has never been calibrated either. However, I repeat that the phenomenon of going off the scale happened only within this red circle, and it happened on each of the 4 or 5 times that I measured. When I moved away, the dose rate was around 30cpm at 50cm above the ground. Back at home, the dose rate was in the normal range.

I didn't stay long in this hot spot because I was terrified by the noise that my survey meter gave out. It wasn't like the usual low pitched sound but beeping noisily. I am starting to think though that perhaps I should go back and get a sample of the soil and grass of this spot.

Coincidence or ?
I admit that it wasn’t the first time that the readings of this old survey meter went off the scale. It had happened a few times before. Twice it was due to a sudden change in temperature. The other time it happened when a gardener in a park was using a blower and the dust was blown towards me. I imagined that it must be a really rare case to find such a hot spot so easily. It was the first place I tried to measure and without even moving around I just landed on it.

But then at the same time, a scary thought comes to my mind: Maybe there are micro hot spots like this one all over. I had this area in my mind because of the constant high air dose rate but this is not the only spot where I find high air dose rates when I am walking.

I also had the suspicion that this area might have beta radiation sources that do not originate from the Fukushima Daiichi accident: namely the uranium from the depleted uranium storage facility next to Cosmo Oil Refinery (Chiba prefecture) that burned after the earthquake on March 11th. Looking it up I read that uranium 238 has the specific activity of 14.8 Bq/mg. In order to influence the readings of a survey meter that has a background radiation of 30cpm, I would need about 10mg of uranium 238, which would be a huge amount of particles.

I hence conclude that the radioactive particles in the red circle cannot be uranium 238. If you consider that the air dose rate is relatively high in the whole area around the spot it is more natural to think that various different radioactive particles from Fukushima Daiichi fell on the ground and stuck here.

The problem is that this area is not a particularly highly contaminated area according to the air measurement map by MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology). If in even a moderately contaminated area you find micro hot spots like this, there could be numerous other micro hot spots in the whole Kanto region.

N.B. it didn't rain here on March 15th, but it did on March 21st 2011.

This reminded me of a soil survey that had been conducted by the US where various samples with high gross-alpha and gross-beta radioactivity were found across Kanto and Tohoku regions. When I saw it I was surprised by the frequency of those hot samples but maybe it is not such a big surprise after all. One should understand that even randomly chosen, you can find hot samples from the soil in Kanto and Tohoku.

We need reliable information
There is a lot of conflicting information published on alpha and beta radiation sources which makes it difficult for individuals to get an accurate idea of the contamination. For instance, I once learned that some soil samples in Kanagawa prefecture had a high dose of strontium, but this was denied later. Since it is technically difficult the government should collect samples and conduct the measurements, but I haven’t heard of anything of that nature being done.

I guess that they just don't want to do it. For it will likely lead to a big scandal if they do.


Introduction of Zukunashi no Hiyamizu's Blog : http://inventsolitude.sblo.jp/article/92061521.html

The writer of this blog (myself) is a Japanese man with a varied professional experience who will turn 70 in a few years: I have worked in a large organization in Japan, have also worked abroad, have gone through redundancy, and worked in a part-time job at close to the minimum wage.

Now that I don’t work any more and that I’m in a fortunate enough situation where I don’t have to shiver from cold or starve, I thought I would use my spare time and experience for something useful for society and started a blog in 2005.

It has been a while since Japanese society stopped caring for the socially weak. The nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant has marked the final confirmation of this. We have been deprived of our humble pleasure of eating. Staying healthy has become a struggle. In other words, our right to health or even the right to life are being threatened. Threatened by the government and by some major firms. This angers me and my days are spent trying to fight against this situation so as to help this country go in a better direction.

It would be a great pleasure if I could share my concerns with you and that in doing so I were able to help this world, even if it is only in a small way. 

Thank you for reading.

N.B. The graphs and tables in this blog are based on statistics of population dynamics, measurements of radiation in soil and food, and data from monitoring posts, all of which are provided by the government and municipalities. If judged as reliable, information gathered from tweets and blogs is also used for analysis.

Emission of spherical cesium-bearing particles from an early stage of the Fukushima nuclear accident Kouji Adachi,Mizuo Kajino,Yuji Zaizen& Yasuhito Igarashi

The cause substance have been found.

This is an aggregate of radionuclides which starts with Uranium.
It was made in the blast furnace of a nuclear reactor at more than 5000°C.
This mixed metal contains four different substances, αβγ and also have the possibility to radiate neutron ray.

No creature on earth never knew this substance.
We are forced to have those strong substances inside our body without knowing where it exactly stays.

To say that "Cesium has got the same system as potassium and it will be discharged from the body" is just a lie!

The body can't recognize 5% of cesium and other complex substances (mixed metal) so i doubt that our body could badly react.

And this fact can open the closed door of global fallout of nuclear experiences in the 60's and also the hidden history of hot particles contamination of the world.
It also shows the wrong way used by leaders and their methods about the fact of death ash after Hisroshima and Nagasaki.
The conclusion is that anyone who doesn't show the facts about the substance of cause is our enemy.

We are all manipulated by the words "radiation" and "radiation doze" without knowing the real identity of radiation source.
We are not told the real facts of being irradiated and they force us to believe that it's just pure metal and they let us believe in "behavior and extracorporeal elimination" and force us to believe in the myth of security.
On top of all that, they only compare radiation doze and natural potassium contained in bananas and manipulated people as if it was a scientific study.

I really want the scholars patronized by the government to be punished by the rancorous of all children on this earth.

The usual practice of misleading people is to create setters and contractors in many layers.
They let people believe that they are normal person and people who listen to them start to believe them. They are making fans and they lead people distinctly as a result.
They are always avoiding the issue.
The issue is hold in the hands of enemies and when people know the issue, the energy makes a conciliatory move and took them to neutralize the attack of public opinions.

The guilt of global fallout is the corruption of concession groups of the nuclear industry and medical and insurance companies.
They made cancer to increase in a dramatic way and Japan as a nation that was victim of atomic bombs in the world which have medical history of contamination but they don't let us know the substances of death ash in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

And there's more. They were manipulating us from the beginning of the accident by telling us that "95% of the contamination comes from food, 4% from water, only 1 % from aspiration".

An adult person aspirates 20m3 of air per day and in weight it's 20kg.
We take food and water much less than that.
The lung takes varied chemical substances as it takes oxygen from air.

The hot particle size is all μm.
It's really small so it goes into the blood and into the body. Then the organs take them .
The size of mesh hole of the filter to incinerate debris is also μm.
The informations say that hot particles were diffused and flied in all directions in Japan.

The particles from hell is flying in the air and people don't protect themselves anymore three years after the nuclear accident and children are aspirating those horrible particles everyday!!!

Please let all people in the world to know the life we are living since the accident, everyday and today.

Spreading the radioactive debris and decontamination that doesn't work is only increasing the number of HIBAKUSHAS without good reason.

Air dose rate of Tokyo measured by citizens

Original Text from Zukunashi no Hiyamizu's Blog : http://inventsolitude.sblo.jp/article/85338449.html

There are only 5 monitoring posts in Tokyo set up by administrative office, which you can see real time air dose rate of Tokyo where 12 million people live in.  

Citizens in Tokyo fear radioactivity effect and share air dose rates measured by themselves.

“Hakatte Geiger!”, the web-site for the purpose of sharing measured air dose rate, established in June 2011 and now 4 thousand people register for this site and provide air dose rates measured by themselves.

In this site, there is a web-page named “Hakattayo Response Catalog”.  You can see vast amounts of air dose rates that registrants measured at requested spots.  

I calculated average values and maximal values on 23 wards and other local municipalities in Tokyo for each referring to posted rates on “Hakattayo Response Catalog” .  As a result, I lead to 2 conclusions as follows;

1. Those calculated values indicate high air dose rate in the east and west of Tokyo.

2. I confirmed that there was a certain level of integrity between air dose rates measured by MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) that you can see the details at the site of “The Distribution Map of Radiation Dos, etc.,”, and those posted on “Hakattayo Response Catalog”.

As for air dose rates posted on “Hakattayo Response Catalog”, since each registrant measured at different time and date and used different Geiger counter, you have to consider such accuracy differences and radioactivity decreases as time passed.  

In this case, I calculated these values as premises for lack of strictness.

As far as interregional comparison, there is sufficient data on each municipality and I don’t think these results undermine the credibility lacking strictness.  Also I make sure that the results have the credibility by comparing with the air dose rate measured by MEXT.

If you would like to make a closer examination of time and date, instrument, measured altitude and air dose rate on certain spot, please refer to “Hakatte Geiger!”.

Under the law of Japan, general citizen is strictly restricted to access to the area where there is more than 40,000Bq radioactivity per square meter as “Radiation Controlled Area”.  The air dose rate is about 0.14μSv/h correspond to this level of contamination.  According to average values on the map, it is a shock to find out that many regions indicate more than 0.15μSv/h.

Original Text from Zukunashi no Hiyamizu's Blog : http://inventsolitude.sblo.jp/article/93343668.html

April 17th, 2014 

It seems clear to me now that the health problems caused by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident will be more terrible than anyone has ever imagined. The reasons are as follows:

1. The radiation contamination caused by the Fukushima nuclear accident has reached a densely populated area.

2. In the Fukushima accident more alpha and beta emitting radioisotopes are said to have been  released than in Chernobyl.

3. In Japan residents have been made to remain in contaminated areas whereas in Chernobyl residents of areas with the same degree of contamination were moved away.

4. Restrictions on the distribution of food are not as strict as the measures that were taken at the time of the Chernobyl accident.

5. People are not told about how to avoid radiation.

6. In Japan serious irradiation through inhalation happened over a vast area at the early stage of the accident.

7. Health problems are appearing earlier than in Chernobyl.

8. Tsunami debris, general waste and cars that are contaminated by radiation have been transported and spread all over Japan.

9. In Chernobyl they managed to encase the reactor in sarcophagus in 7 months whereas in Japan 3 years after the accident radioactive matter is still being  emitted continuously from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

10. No one knows when and how the leaks of radioactive matter from Fukushima Daiichi will ever be brought under control.

11. The site of Fukushima Daiichi has turned into a bog of strontium; in dry conditions the contaminated dust floats off into the air.

12. Huge amounts of contaminated water were spilled into the sea and nuclides such as strontium and tritium are expected to be washed back on land mainly along the coast.

13. Workers at the site of the accident continue to be massively irradiated. 

14. Despite the probability of strontium contamination, seafood is being distributed and sold with hardly any checks for alpha and beta radioactive nuclides.  

15. Serious diseases could be caused by irradiation. However there is no systematic checking for early detection nor regular monitoring taking place. No medical treatment has been put in place for radiation-related diseases.

16. The Japanese medical body has little understanding of the health problems caused by irradiation.

17. People have little knowledge and understanding about the danger of radiation. Saving their lives should be their main concern but they don't think or act that way. 

My wish is to stay alive for 3 more years but I am starting to think that it might be difficult. Perhaps I should start expressing my feelings of gratitude to familiy and friends before it's too late. 

If I die suddenly, it would be impossible to do so.
