(UPDATED) Strontium-90 Discovered in Yokohama City, 245 km from Fukushima I Nuke Plant

Details in the mail magazine by the independent journalist Yasumi Iwakami (paid subscription). I'm asking if I could translate and post it here.

The number is 195 becquerels/kg, more than 150 times more than the background (1.2 becquerels/kg).

This is probably the lower of the two samples; the other sample is currently being analyzed.

As far as the Ministry of Education is concerned, the southern most detection of strontium-90 was in Shirakawa City, 79 kilometers from the plant. The Ministry doesn't have a plan to test for strontium or plutonium outside the 80 kilometer radius.

On September 30, a government radiation expert appeared on NHK News to tell the viewers that strontium had not flown to the Tokyo Metropolitan area, and the only radionuclides people had to worry about were cesium-134 and cesium-137. In the video clip, the expert looks nervous, so does the male NHK announcer trying to wrap up his remarks.

September 30 was the day when the Ministry of Education and Science released the map of plutonium and strontium in the 80-kilometer radius from the plant. It was also the day when the Japanese government abolished the "evacuation-ready zone" in the area between 20 and 30 kilometers from the plant.

I hope you're allowed to translate this. All due respect to Yasumi Iwakami, but this kind of information shouldn't be limited to paid subscribers.

I'm in direct contact with the person who collected the sample and sent it for analysis. Stay tuned.

Did they test for Strontium-89 also?

What about plutonium, uranium, thorium, protactinium, radium, radon, polonium, lead, thallium, bismuth,and so on, and so on... tests - are they doesn't exists?? Most of them have alpha, beta and gamma emissions - think about that, are they tests for that? It's all lay around there - have you see explosions??Are you blind?? Radiation is even good for health - bud in limited quantities!!!!, that what i observe is some madness!!!

- Why would u not?
- If you do, wassup?
- You have courage. Use it without restrictions. Thks in advance.

Hi time to understand that Fuku belongs to just one battle-front in the global information War in fight of our slavery. So pls let the 'Dance School Principals' keep their rules: theses syndicated killers must be exposed globally whatever the price. Through centuries outspoken brave men have paid our relative freedom with their life: freedom isnt free!

Next as important issue is to detect this hideously hidden enemy and understand it: Father of all isms. No use to fight shadows when enemy deludes troops into thinking it isnt.

FYI: This enemy flees only when exposed - they are - cowards.

Hey laprimavera, is this one of the samples from Kohoku-ku with 60~100,000 Bq/Kg of cesium? http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/2011/09/105600-bqkg-of-radioactive-cesium-from.html

WHERE exactly in Yokohama?

@ anon...
Why do you ask "where exactly".
The Fuku thing is not a "hot spot" issue, it continue to spew radiation. the coriums are almost for sure underground and fissioning away, becoming harder and harder to deal with as our leader put their heads in the sands and mislead.

Where exactly does not matter, it is a broad and long lasting problem.

This again shows us:

Strontium, plutonium and other "heavy" stuff does not conveniently fall out near the accident sites.
The government wants to make us believe to some "experts" lies.

So we have really to worry about strontium and plutonium.
Even where, for example, the cesium levels are low.

The fact that these alpha and beta emitters cannot easily be detected like gamma radiation makes things really uncanny.
Because, everywhere could be a strontium or plutonium hot spot that your personal counter cannot detect.

@Atomfritz: "So we have really to worry about strontium and plutonium.

I wouldn't call 63,000 Bq/Kg or 105,600 Bq/Kg of cesium "low."

This is seriously bad news.
Prof Hayakawa's map did show that contamination had reached towards Yokahama, but having strontium contamination laid down across a 200+km radius from the plant is really awful.
Even worse, it seems the Japanese government appears to have concluded, probably correctly, that there is no possible way to clean this up, that the Japanese people will just have to live with it. From that perspective, it makes perfect sense to minimize any disclosure from Fukushima, using the corporate shell TEPCO to bypass any claims of government responsibility.
As the health effects of these levels of radiation exposure are expected to be low and in any case are not immediate, this approach is quite likely to work. It does however indicate an utter distrust of the Japanese people, who are not being informed honestly about the realities of the situation.

Strontium - Just one of the myriad TEPCO-hoaxes...

.

Strontium in England - 2000 miles away: The effective doses in May 1986 for Chernobyl radionuclides in England were: Cs-134 and Cs-137, 27 mSv; I-131, 6 mSv; Sr-90, 0.9 mSv (Smith et al. (2000). page27, Table 1.2

Yugoslavia: Distribution of Sr-89 and Sr-90 in Slovenia, Yugoslavia, after the Chernobyl accident. J. Env. Radioact. 5: 159–163. Juznic, K. & Fedina, S. (1987).

Strontium-90 decays in Beta radiation to Yttrium-90. This is a special danger for teeth-bone. (Mel’nichenko and Cheshko, 1997)

Typical Chernobyl hot spots measure tens to hundreds of meters across and have levels Yablokov & Nesterenko: Contamination through Time and Space 21 of radioactivity ten times higher than the surrounding areas

To answer the reader's reasonable question, Yokohama is *south* of Tokyo, about an hour by train.

Just today, there are reputable new sites reporting scientific data just obtained of strontium in Tokyo, with data for 3 areas in the city.

A google search for "strontium" and "Tokyo" readily brings it up.

This is very concerning, to put it mildly.
