Always check the date of information – it is dating quickly, and ask yourself who is telling you what and why. 

Radiation in Fukushima prefecture
Please note that if visiting Fukushima or affected areas of Japan (most of Tohoku and Kanto, with areas almost down to Kansai affected in places), it is important to inform yourself about levels of radiation: in the air, in soil and the physical environment, water and especially in food. It is worth being radiation aware in terms of food wherever you are buying in Japan, especially if you are a young female or have children. My summary of some issues to think about (relevant to all adults but aimed at parents) is here.

Swiss site with Fukushima potential particle dispersion (not levels), wind and rain prediction map for Japan,  which gives a useful idea to help decide your behaviour, eg allowing children to play outside or not.

This is a really key thing you would need in the even of a nuclear accident near you.  Because the Japanese government withheld similar information from the Speedi system at the time of the accident many people, including children, were unnecessarily exposed to the radioactive plume, for example evacuating into its path. Check with your local authorities to ensure that this will be provided in the event of a nuclear accident in your country.

  1. beautifulgirlbydana on youtube is a site that might scare you but he's got the facts and the truth! He presents it all with a passion! The nuke industry has been on a mission to destroy him! His truth can't be disputed but he's sometimes he's grating on the nerves! msmilkytheclown1 is another very informative site on youtube! Dana is by far the most raw and in your face factual site with details few others report! He's not afraid of telling the truth! Thank you for this site of yours! If you look to the main stream media, government, internet etc...you will come to believe all is wonderful and healthy in fukushima! They are treating it as the greatest place to visit and get your food from!It is so insane and infuriating when you know the truth and facts about Fukushima Daiichi meltdowns!

  3. I never knew people still have powers and make things happened this way. My name is Joy Samson . from USA. Before giving birth, my Husband left me for another woman for three months, ever since then my life was filled with pains and sorrow because he was the best thing that can ever happen to me in this world and I can’t imagine my child growing up without a father, this world became one cruel place for me as at that time. About two weeks ago, a friend of mine told me he saw some testimonies of this great Dr ADAGBA that he can bring back lover within 48 hours, I laughed over it and said I am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she convinced me to make contact with Dr ADAGBA OF dagbaspiritualtemple@gmail.com or adagbaspiritualtemple@yahoo.com, after all I had nothing to lose. The moment Dr ADAGBA replied my message, although I was doubtful because of i have not done this before but I felt hope. I got a call from my husband 2 days after contacting Dr ADAGBA, my husband wanted to come back home and he was filled with regrets for leaving me and the child. Surprisingly, that was his first call for over 9 months and he was all sorry and kept apologizing. I was filled with joy and happy heart. I still can't believe it, because it’s highly unbelievable it’s just too real to be true but that’s it. Thank you Dr for bringing back my lover. Find dagbaspiritualtemple@gmail.com also call or whatsapp him +2349057354407 his website: http://adagbaspiritualtem9.wixsite.com/mysite
