Japan's Nuclear Crisis

. Monday, March 21, 2011

Japan has raised the level of crisis in the Fukushima nuclear power plant to level 5 from the previous level 4 on an international scale 7. This status is similar to the nuclear crisis that hit the Three Mile Island, United States, 1979. But it is still under the level of nuclear accident of Chernobyl, Ukraine, 1986.

Spinach, milk and agricultural products in the area near Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant contaminated with nuclear radiation over the safe limit. Yukio Edano -Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary- said based on checks, the milk in the area of Fukushima and spinach grown in Ibaraki, radiation levels exceeded the limit. However Edano said radiation levels are not dangerous to human health and consumers were asked calmly.

Japan's nuclear crisis has spread fear, not only for Japanese residents, but also citizens of the nearest countries. They are afraid with the nuclear radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The excessive fear, considering distance is so far from the center of the reactor. Residents stormed the shop and supermarket to buy iodized salt, or go to pharmacy and drug store to buy iodine pills. Salt and iodine pills believed to ward off nuclear radiation.

Iodine tablets can reduce the risk of thyroid cancer caused by exposure to nuclear radiation, but also could pose a risk to users, namely the emergence of allergic reactions and can be problematic in the thyroid gland.
