Japan Sets Radiation Limits For Infant Drinks Twice The International Legal Limit For Nuclear Waste

July 7, 2011

Calls grow for the resignation of a Japanese official caught lying to the public about the safety of radiation limits that have been “temporarily” increased to shockingly high levels.

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.

As shown in the infograph below,  you can see the relationship of “temporary legal limits for radiation” for infants  and adults, as compared to the international legal limits for nuclear waste, and the legal limits of food and beverages set by other nations around the world.

More information on these infographs can be found here.

Shockingly, Japanese officials are still lying to the public telling them these limits are safe. This video is full of disgusting lies from the Fukushima Radiation Health Risk Advisor and should make anyone who watches absolutely mad.

For example, the health advisor is telling the people of Fukushima:

  1. Internal Radiation is 10 times less harmful than external radiation.
  2. It is okay to be outside in 100 microsieverts per hour radiation.
  3. ” It’s obvious that whether if you can stay outside or not under 5, 10 or 20 sievert per hour.”

In point number 3 he means it doesn’t matter how high the radiation level is outside, if the radiation outside is dangerous you will be able to tell immediately.

Seriously, just watch.

The bullshit these officials are telling the people of Japan is sickening. In fact, there are growing calls from the public to make this official in particular resign.
