Some 203 tons of highly radioactive water have been erroneously pumped at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant to the basement of an engineering and utilities service building, rather than to special-purpose storage tanks, according to the plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company, TEPCO. But TEPCO points out that there is no further leakage threat, since the basement is in no way linked to drainage systems. Read More »

Japanese physicians link spike in cancer to Fukushima radiation

Cancer rates in many areas of Japan are on the rise following the global catastrophe at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility back in March 2011. And some Japanese doctors now caring for all those radiation refugees who were shipped out from areas surrounding the nuclear plant after it exploded say fallout from the disaster is likely to blame for this massive uptick in disease.
