    You mean the nature article that lists the research of numerous different scientists? The one that shows that someone spending 6 weeks eating exclusively Fukushima food showed absolutely no radiation? The one that showed a different set of research that shows how the radiation in Fukushima? Which supports what other scientists have said previously?

    Is that the one you read?

    Speaking of backing up your claim, where's the link that shows 'Less than 80% of the people living in Fukushima prefecture buy any food grown in the area so the locals also continue to have some mistrust.'

    Obviously you can't because it's not true. But still when you continue to throw out these claims it would be awfully nice if you provided some evidence. You expect it from others but frequently fail to provide it yourself.

    I absolutely agree that it is Korea's decision. I strongly believe that any country can decide what food should and shouldn't be imported to their country.

    What we'll probably disagree about is that in the case of Fukushima there is no scientific reason to ban the food.

    However it should still be Korea's decision.

    Did you read the Guardian artice?

    Williams and other experts have attributed the large number of cases to the use of hypersensitive ultrasound, which can detect the tiniest lesions, and the large number of children being tested.

    I've posted the Nature link numerous times. I believe that you've heard of the international magazine Nature?

    Link?

    if you're so insistent that the food is safe, feel free to import it to your own household and feed it to your family.

    Care to provide any evidence that the food isn't safe? There's plenty of research from the international science community that seems to disagree with your view? I'd be interested to see something from someone credible (not a yoga instructor) that says that food from Fukushima isn't safe.

    I was referring to all of the scientists who disagree. Now obviously you seem happier to believe a yoga teacher over the research from the science community.

    Interesting that you would believe someone who claimed there was a 6000 percent increase in cancers without a shred of evidence to support it.

    6000% increase in cancer cases after the Fukushima disaster.

    I seriously doubt that Japan would be worried about further testing of the food. But I'm sure that plenty on here would dispute the findings because it doesn't fall in with the standard view on here.

    Mitsuo, I see your point but with all due repsect, can anyone tells us the long term effects of consuming foods from Fukushima and its surrounding area? Can you believe the government reports that they have everything under control? I guess it depends on whether you believe all of the research by international scientists or not? But of course South Korea should have the legal right to import whatever it wants to. Unscientific or not.

    More people died in Japan on March 11 from dam failure than died in Dai Ichi.

    Wow... in record fashion I'm already -4 for an article that states:

    confirms what multiple studies of Fukushima residents have already shown: few people are likely to have eaten food that exceeded strict Japanese limits on radioactive contamination.

    the fact that people need to eat huge amounts of above-limit food to exceed the annual permitted radiation dose, the chance of anyone exceeding it was very low, he says.

    That conclusion fits with several studies, including one done in 20132 that showed that only members of the public who bypassed the monitoring by eating home-grown food — four older residents — showed any elevated radiation levels, and these soon returned to normal when eating food that had been regulated.

    After six weeks in the region eating only local produce, drinking only tap water and maximizing his intake of the foods that tend to accumulate the highest volumes of radioactive elements, a scan revealed no traces of radioactivity in his body. “I was convinced that the radioactivity levels in my body would be very low, but I was surprised that no artificial radioactivity was detectable at all,” he says.

    Obviously. I have clearly misunderstood this research and the fact radioactivity in Fukushima's food has now returned to pre-accident levels this is obviously terrible news for everyone.

    No American bengoshi, I expected everyone to read it. I expected everyone to read that food from Fukushima was safe to eat and that few people would ever have eaten sufficient food contaminated food to cause health threats.

    I also expected that the people of JT would have read this international, peer reviewed research and seen it as a positive. Yet that doesn't seem to be the case.

    So instead of marking down the work of the international scientists perhaps someone could provide some scientific evidence that disputes it.

    Because I'm at a loss to understand how the food from Fukushima being back to pre-march 11 levels is anything other than a positive.

    I think this topic says pretty much everything.

    I have posted quotes from a leading science publication. Based on peer reviewed research carried out by different international scientists.

    This has led to accusations of being misinformed and the usual well he must work for the nuclear industry etc. its quite remarkable that despite all the evidence to the contrary, all of the scientific research, all of the facts. There are still those who are determined to make this worse than it is.

    Perhaps someone could explain why the research published in nature is so wrong and using actual scientific evidence that proves that few people have eaten food that will lead to health problems and the produce in Fukushima is back to pre-March levels.

    So many accusations. Not a single piece of evidence to counter it.

    I have said that mislabelling of food is 'appalling'. I've also said that those responsible shold be held accountable.

    I have said that they are not being force fed contaminated food and I have also presented international scientific research to show that the food is not contaminated.

    What you have done is however repeat a non scientific argument with no proof whatsoever.

    Dead wrong that international scientists have proven that Fukushima produce's radiation levels are at the level that they were pre March 2011. Or dead wrong that few people will have ever eaten sufficient to cause health problems.

    What is dead wrong is to suggest that children are being forced contaminated food.

    Sorry. Did you read the research from Nature. It's not a myth that radionuclides cause cancer. However they need to be at certain levels. Levels which are substantially above the levels found in Japanese food.

    None of your links are relevant to the data from February 2015 which shows that Fukushima food is safe. And that few people will have eaten sufficient to cause further health issues.

    It's not a myth that consumers have no confidence in the government's claims. However when the international scientists demonstrate that those claims are correct then perhaps people should have a rethink.

    Four years on and none of the fears have come true and claims that children may have been force fed contaminated food are a joke.

    We want foreign independent research and when it's published it's apparently wrong.

    I'd agree with Strangerland that Taiwan absolutely have the right to refuse the importing of food for whatever reason. Just as Japan did with the US. That it's based on no science doesn't change that.

    But whoever was responsible for mislabeling the food should be sacked and potential face criminal proceedings.

    So Mr. Truth. Perhaps you could explain what research you've done than those listed in Nature. The highly regarded international science publication that's been peer reviewed.

    I wonder what research you've got that dispels their work? Wonder how many hours you've spent trawling through data or carrying out tests.

    And let's just remember that Japanese limits are substantially lower than the rest of the world. Let's remember that when Fukushima rice finally reached Japanese limits, it would have reached European and US limits years ago.

    So Mr. Truth. What's your evidence that the food from Fukushima is contaminated. What's your evidence that more than a few people (NONE OF THEM CHILDREN) have ingested more than the safe limit?

    Just wondering.

    It's a myth that the food from Fukushima is contaminated.

    http://www.nature.com/news/fukushima-data-show-rise-and-fall-in-food-radioactivity-1.17016

    few people are likely to have eaten food that exceeded strict Japanese limits on radioactive contamination.

    The safety effort has been commended for being very effective. It also produced a vast database.

    Combined with the fact that people need to eat huge amounts of above-limit food to exceed the annual permitted radiation dose, the chance of anyone exceeding it was very low, he says.

    That conclusion fits with several studies, including one done in 20132 that showed that only members of the public who bypassed the monitoring by eating home-grown food — four older residents — showed any elevated radiation levels, and these soon returned to normal when eating food that had been regulated.

    After six weeks in the region eating only local produce, drinking only tap water and maximizing his intake of the foods that tend to accumulate the highest volumes of radioactive elements, a scan revealed no traces of radioactivity in his body.

    So yes, it's absolutely a myth to suggest that Japanese children have been force fed food that may be contaminated.

    International. Independent research. But I do appreciate that the good people of JT are much better qualified to comment than some poxy scientists.
