• The Japanese government held a meeting of relevant ministers and officially decided to discharge the nuclear sewage stored in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant of Tokyo Electric Power Company into the sea. It is reported that it will take about two years to start equipment construction before the discharge begins.
  • How much “lethality” is a million tons of nuclear sewage?
    • The so-called nuclear sewage is the waste water remaining after cooling the nuclear reactor.
      On March 11, 2011, the “March 11” Great East Japan Earthquake occurred in Japan, which triggered a huge tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear disaster, killing tens of thousands of people.
      The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant was destroyed in this major earthquake and tsunami, and dozens of radioactive materials leaked to the outside world in large quantities.
      These radioactive materials contaminated everything around Fukushima, except for vegetation, soil, objects, and even fine dust and air, as well as nuclear sewage, that is, radioactive liquid.
      Large amounts of radioactive materials have been detected in nuclear sewage.
      According to reports, nuclear radiation not only kills cells, but also has mutagenic effects, which may induce cell cancer or genetic mutations, leading to biological malformations.
      In a short period of time, once the ingested dose exceeds 100 mSv, the human body will be harmed, and if it exceeds 4000 mSv, it will directly cause death.
  • The spread of radioactive materials is beyond imagination
    • The calculation results of a marine scientific research institute from Germany show that
    • From the date of discharge, radioactive materials will spread to most of the Pacific Ocean within 57 days.
      Three years later, the United States and Canada will be affected by nuclear pollution.
    • Korean media pointed out, “If Japan’s nuclear sewage enters the sea, the polluted seawater will reach Jeju Island in 220 days. It will reach the west coast of South Korea in 400 days.
    • The German Antarctic Ocean Agency warned, if Japan discharges all wastewater into the sea. In less than half a year, the entire Pacific Ocean will face a high degree of radiation threat. Including the United States on the other side of the ocean.
    • Ten years later, the entire Pacific Ocean will be completely polluted. If it exists in the human body, it may cause the “three causes”, carcinogenic, teratogenic, and mutagenic, and it has a major impact on human genetics.
