    Did the aphids go through the same food.quarantine restrictions that the humans went through. Did the aphids go through the same bongo zone that the humans went through? As a study it's interesting. At least compared to other studies on aphids.

    As a study relating to health effects on human beings it is not remotely relevant.

    Star viking it may well be, I was quoting something I read recently but it may well be lower than that. But either way it's substantially lower than the JT community seems to think.

    By the way. I don't live in the Pacific Ocean either just in case anyone wants to bring up my locale as a reason that my opinion is irrelevant.

    That's also been covered to death...of you test to the nth degree you will find every single discrepancy. Same in other parts of Japan. There will be increases in cancer. Thyroid cancer, if discovered early enough is almost 100 percent treatable. These are simplemented facts

    Just as there was substantially less radiation than chernobyl. That the food wasn't contaminated to the levels in chernobyl etc etc etc

    And if 99% of Japanese have a different opinion to the science community that explains why the biggest risk is fear of radiation not radiation itself.

    Ever wonder why the negative articles are all on enenews but never in lancet etc?

    And apart from the headline...where does the 6000% come from?

    @Hi Majin. ..yes radiation released was substantially lower than chernobyl and the authorities were substantially more stringent than the soviets in terms of allowing contaminated food into the market.

    @westerner....no science tells us one thing and that is that the scale of disaster in Fukushima is nowhere near as bad as many on here have claimed. Theres a constant message from the International science community. A 7% increase in risk of something which is incredibly low in the first place is a very negligible increase. Who covered this a couple of years ago when they concluded that there would be few health problems as a result of this.

    Again @him akin. ..don't forget the sudden deaths in Miyagi and iwate as well. Not radiation related but due to losing everything in the tsunami. They are quickly becoming the forgotten victims of this.

    Only 1% of the radiation in the Pacific comes from Fukushima based on international studies.

    As other studies have shown food in the region is back to pre disaster levels. For reasons I genuinely can't comprehend many contributor on here want this to be a wrose disaster than it is.

    Many international scientists and governments have concluded that those fears are irrational, incorrect and very unscientific.

    Oh and I neither live in Japan nor Chernobyl in case anyone feels the need to bring that into the conversation. But then neither is Geraldine Thomas nor the Lancet.

    Can't expect residents to return to one-third or two-thirds of the village but stay away from the other one-third. Similar situation in Minamisoma.

    No. What you said above suggests people should only be where the whole village is open. Can't expect people to stay away from 1/3 of a village.

    Yet it's happened since March 2011 and I wonder how someone in Kobe whose never been to the region, can sit behind a keyboard and make such claims?

    Minami Soma has functioned as an incomplete city since March 2011. To suggest otherwise or to suggest that people should only be allowed to return to a whole city or village is ridiculous.

    Yes Zichi I have been to Minami Soma on many occasions. There is no reason to close the entire city because parts of it are off limits. It has continued to function since March 11 and the residents have more than coped.

    You post seemed to suggest that the residents shouldn't have that opportunity and the city should have been closed off.

    Which is ludicrous.

    Now perhaps your experience in Minami Soma is different to mine and I would love to hear how your first hand experience differs.

    I think cases like Iitate Village are difficult and because its a small village the whole village needs to declared off limits for the very distant future. Can't expect residents to return to one-third or two-thirds of the village but stay away from the other one-third. Similar situation in Minamisoma.

    Perhaps we've been to different parts of Minami Soma. From my travels there, it's a very large geographical area and quite large areas are well below legal safe limits. Hence the reason it wasn't completely evacuated and why there are a large number of temporary communities there to cover for other areas.

    What's your first hand experience in Minami-Soma?

    Zichi...not a person attack at all.

    Just whenever anyone highlights fossil fuels in Japan. You talk about every other countries use of fossil fuels. Which is irrelevant and designed to deflect from the death and destruction that the switch to coal in Japan has caused. Not once have you said it's unacceptable that this happens. Ybut you do constantly claim that it doesn't happen in Japan.

    The nuclear accident got into the ground. The ai and food. But at what levels. At what risl to health. Your statements are sweeping. Yes it's in the Pacific but it's 1 percent of the total radiation in that ocean. It's in the food but as has been proven numerous times before not at levels that are hazardous to health. And substantially lower than that is from your home country.

    Your argument is nuclear is bad. It's on a par with saying per die when they fly.

    Safest form of travel. Safest form of power.

    Guy, you have to remember that Zichi is of the belief that Japanese coal is different. Fossil fuels from other countries are dangerous but Japanese ones aren't. He also seems to be of the opinion that people don't die in Japan from fossil fuels. Therefore an increase in fossil fuels hasn't let to an increase in deaths. obviously this is different to the rest of the world but Japan is different. Apparently

    He didn't join Arsenal from Wigan. Wigan was one of the teams that Arsenal loaned him to.

    There were four possible outcomes

    1) reach the target

    2) fail and turn around.

    3) fail and be rescued

    4) fail and die

    Now one didn't happen and two wasn't possible. 4 didn't happen because they had the sense to call for 3. Not sure why people see that as a bad thing. Pretty much every attempt at something like this that fails ends in rescue or death. I remember Richard Branson being rescued trying to break a world record. Wonder if the same people were determined to hate then.

    And yes she was part of a team that rowed the Atlantic yet instead of proving her credentials it seems that some disagree. What do you think she was doing on that trip? Making tea? Cooking toasted sandwiches?

    More people die on the way down on Everest than going up because they don't have the strength of mind to turn round.

    She'll be back again and I wish her the best of luck. People like her are,IMO crazy, but that's because they take on things that are way out of my comfort zone.

    If an earthquake wasn't strong enough to cause the leaks, how could a tsunami that didn't knock over the buildings cause the leaks?

    And what happened after the tsunami. The power went off and stopped the reactors from cooling... and then ....

    And yes, the reactor and turbine buildings were damaged in the earthquake and subsequent nuclear event. As a result, groundwater is able to enter the basements of those buildings.

    The reactor and turbine buildings were damaged. The buildings. Not the reactor.

    Something to do with the tsunami that followed and engulfed the plant and knocking out the power etc.

    But despite what Zichi has said, there is absolutely no evidence that the reactors suffered major damage in the earthquake for one simple reason. They didn't.

    Now you can mark me down all you like, that doesn't change the fact that the reactors did not suffer major damage during the quake.

    You said:

    The Fukushima nuclear plant was extensively damaged by the earthquake including major damage to the reactors.

    There is no evidence of this. There has never been any evidence of this.

    Yes but if you don't use the word hydro, I don't know you're referring to hydro dams.

    A bit like when you use the phrase major damage, I know that you're incorrectly claiming that there was major damage to the reactors.

    would be better if you actually made a contribution to the discussion instead of just attacking comments made by others.

    Wow. Coming from you?

    So a degree in geography would be on a higher than yoga

    you've previously claimed that the reactor suffered catastrophic damage in the quake yet haven't provided any links so I think it's fair to ask for one. I mean you have said dams have never failed on Japan. I have never stated the "reactor" not sure which one you mean, "suffered catastrophic damage" but certainly parts of it were damaged like the cracks in the suppression chambers. Because of the dangerous radiation levels a proper inspection of the Fukushima reactors has been impossible. It made be many decades before one can be made.With regard to dams in Japan, I have only stated there as never been a major disaster involving a hydro dam.

    Sorry, you’re right. You didn’t say catastrophic. You said the reactor suffered ‘major damage’.

    And no, you said there had never been a major disaster involving dams in Japan. Whereas one failed in March 2011 killing numerous people

    In his evidence to the Diet, the plant manager at the time of the nuclear disaster, Yoshida stated about not being able to close the doors to the emergency center building because they had been distorted by the earthquake even though the building was suppose to be earthquake proof. Anyway I have said there was damage during the earthquake but the damage wasn't significant enough on its own and would have been repaired had it not been for the tsunami. I don't think you are qualified to make that statement and will will never known if there would have been a nuclear disaster without the tsunami.

    Wow. I’m not qualified to make the statement that it didn’t happen. Yet you’re qualified to say that the reactors suffered major damage.

    I think you missed the point again. You asked what would have happened if Tokyo had to be evacuated. Yet it was never ever going to happen so is irrelevant.

    You make a statement that the earthquake bent the doors. I asked if you have a link to prove that. You constantly ask me to provide links to my claims and I don't think there is any harm in me asking you to prove something. you've previously claimed that the reactor suffered catastrophic damage in the quake yet haven't provided any links so I think it's fair to ask for one. I mean you have said dams have never failed on Japan.

    Anyway I have said there was damage during the earthquake but the damage wasn't significant enough on its own and would have been repaired had it not been for the tsunami.

    Fukushima had one but the earthquake bent the doors which couldn't be closed allowing radiation to enter. They are suppose to be earthquake and radiation proof.

    Do you have a link for that?

    . What would have happened if Tokyo had to be evacuated?

    If. It wasn't nor was it ever going to be. It's like saying what would have happened if another, larger dam had failed. It didn't happen and if anything it shows what a good job the risk assessors did.

    Smith, actually I think that the fact he won election and has resigned now is actually a good thing for the game and FIFA.

    Now don't get me wrong, he is an odious toad and only ever did things which benefitted him. But had he dropped out last week there would have only been one person who could have taken over. Now, hopefully, there can be a fair and clear race for the best candidates.

    It may well turn out that that is actually Prince Ali but this way there can be a completely fresh and hopefully fair race.

    People die from the generation of electricity. This is undoubtedly true. Most people die from the generation of fossil fuels. Again this is undoubtedly true.

    And I still struggle to understand why you prefer the guaranteed deaths from fossil fuels.
