Today there are scientists who will promote findings they are paid to find. This does not necessarily have anything to do with truth. Money talks and these scientists want to keep working.

I blame the government of Japan for the bullying, the refusal of the hospitals to treat children from Fukushima. The lack of public awareness about radiation and contamination. There is a stigma because there is ignorance. This all could change if the government of Japan put Yen into educating the public.

Why does JGovt want the Corium to be removed from where it is and brought to the surface? Why risk such a thing? My guess is to tap its energy. But that is past absurd, especially when the technology does not exist to do so safely.
Please....... This has been TEPCO and JGovt excuse for the cleanup for the longest time. None of these so called officials have a clue. What use is the Corium energy if it kills everybody. Duh......

There should be a wind farm in Parliament since politicians blow a lot of hot air. Jokes aside where there is wind there is power.

I hope the evacuees prepared for the moment their aid ends. It has been talked about for over a year now. I hope the new lives they have started can sustain them financially.

Speechless..... JGovt help the people of Japan. Make this apart of the plan for Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

A snow monkey is a snow monkey...... This is the most heinous story of gene prejudice I have ever heard. They could have been transported to zoos where their ancestors originated from at any rate. how base and backwards to kill over genes........ A snow monkey??? oh how brave to get rid of a gene...... real sick I say....

Firstly the technology does not exist to handle highly radioactive molten uranium. So what is the point in looking for it. Why pretend that this is not a deadly and dangerous accident?? Entomb the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Meltdowns. TEPCO is contaminating the land, sea and air as we speak, in the so called name of science. Finding Corium should not have been hard, there was a triple meltdown after all.

Exactly, utilizing what resources that are naturally occurring and available makes much more sense.

The people who have moved back to these towns, I hope are decontaminating themselves on a daily basis. It has been proven that constant exposure to low levels of nuclear radiation can cause Thyroid cancer. The article was published on Japan Today. The subject of the article worked at nuclear power plants. The people moving to and living in these towns face low levels of nuclear radiation constantly. 24 hours a day without cease their bodies will be or are being bombarded with low levels of nuclear radioisotopes. Please, please decontaminate yourselves. If there are onsens nearby go often, the volcanic alkaline water is very detoxifying. Volcanic Clay and water is good to drink as well as activated charcoal tablets with water. We are all ultimately responsible for our health. So please take care.

All of the radioactive debris was put into trash bags and placed at riverbeds, in parks, on hills and coastlines in the area the debris was gathered......I hope the people who did the decontamination work are okay. Just as I hope the many workers whose nuclear radioisotopes exposure levels are too high to continue that line of work are okay.
I believe the fear to return to these towns is a rational fear because I would fear living there too. It is good for everyone to move on and not look back .

I read once that in India there is a problem with food borne illness cases. But I believe the article I read said the cause was hygienic in nature, meaning unclean hands prepared the food.
UtrackJan. 28, 2017 - 07:51AM JST
Robert Dykes I completely agree. The symptoms spoken of in the article seem severe in and of themselves.

The U.S. has been making robots to use on planets like Mars. Have not TEPCO and the Government of Japan thought to purchase a Mars Rover? Or some such remote control vehicles for these melted reactors. I do know that the first ones sent into the reactors were lost. I do believe through manmade error of direction.

Entombment of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant is possible. Keeping the spent fuel pools cold can be accomplished with external piping connected to coolant rods placed by robots into the spent fuel pools. If they can waste time, money and lives with this clean up. TEPCO can think of ways to entomb the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

Cement Sarcophagi are only meant to last 25 years. Hence the need to do another Sarcophagi of Chernobyl. Yes,, Entomb the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

Heda Madness I never stated tens of thousands would die. In danger of getting cancer or other sicknesses yes. Nuclear radiation exposure through the environment or ingestion is not healthy.
