That said, I didn't get my Katrina zombie movie, so how about one from his? It has a lot of good elements.

Yes. If only there was something dangerous that would discourage entry.

Also, WTF is up with this?

"NEWS ADVISORY: Radiation level in Iitate not above Japan evacuation criteria: agency"

Yet both Greenpeace (new window) and the IAEA (new window) have confirmed those folks, several days ago, are getting 5-10 millisievert an hour - which means they're getting an annual max level of radiation every 3-4 days.

cbackous: So you saying they have a better tan than me?


Unless my math is wrong, and the levels don't go down, they're getting one sievert (sv) every 100-200 hours. Keep in mind when you're measuring in full sieverts, these are your expected results:

0.25 - 1 Sv: Some people feel nausea and loss of appetite; bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen damaged.

1 - 3 Sv: Mild to severe nausea, loss of appetite, infection; more severe bone marrow, lymph node, spleen damage; recovery probable, not assured.

3 - 6 Sv: Severe nausea, loss of appetite; hemorrhaging, infection, diarrhea, peeling of skin, sterility; death if untreated.

6 - 10 Sv: Above symptoms plus central nervous system impairment; death expected.

Above 10 Sv: Incapacitation and death.

I think they might want to do more than "discourage" entry. Plus it sounds like there were two plants involved, not just Fukushima Daichi.

But on the bright side, the fact that they weren't terrorists just shows how safe these plants are.

Finally! An example of irrational panic beyond the original delivery drivers not wanting to travel within the exclusion zone.

It's not that things haven't gone to hell (that was obvious from the beginning). It's that you guys seem to have some kind of weird fetish about it, what with constantly going on about it.

There's almost a certain amount of glee in your posts every time something goes wrong.

The concern over the recovery of bodies is similar to the other instances of fear of radiation. The radiation levels detected are not immediately hazardous to health; there shouldn't be any reason why shifts of workers can't go in and get the bodies out of the affected area, other than the "OMG radiation!" attitude that's starting to take hold.

As the EPA points out, the main fear from Cs is the usual radiation effects at high levels. We're all exposed to Cs from natural sources and old fallout; the levels found in Japan are higher than recommended, but are not high enough to cause immediate health effects. If precautions are taken (don't eat the dirt, wear protective gear), workers shouldn't have any problems getting the bodies out of this area.

Sorry, but the opposite is true. If the Japanese authorities were more straight-forward about the situation and the readings, hospitals would have used the last 3 weeks to prep decontamination entrances to handle the people living just outside the (proven too) small exclusion zone. Instead, they're now essentially working in the dark when they get people with radiation sickness symptoms.

Information on Cesium and its effects on the human body.

"If you were to breathe, eat, drink, touch, or come close to large amounts of radioactive cesium, cells in your body could become damaged from the radiation that might penetrate your entire body, much like x-rays, even if you did not touch the radioactive cesium. You would probably experience similar effects if you were exposed to any other substance with similar radioactivity. You might also experience acute radiation syndrome, which includes such effects as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bleeding, coma, and even death. A number of people in Brazil, who handled radioactive cesium that was scavenged from a medical machine used for radiation therapy, became sick from exposure to the radiation; a few of them died. But people exposed to radioactive cesium that has been widely dispersed in air, water, soil, or foods following nuclear bombings or accidents have not been exposed to amounts large enough to cause the same effects."

This is a cute claim. 5 millisievert an hour won't cause 'immediate' health effects - but after a week or two of living in that, why don't you tell me what will happen to you?
