Japanese Gov Detects new Dangerous Isotopes

The Japanese Government has just announced that it has detected strontium 89 and 90 in the soil around Fukushima, this is the first such detection since the incident last month.

Strontium 90 is a problem as it is a very nasty isotope, extremely dangerous, its half life is 30 years.. often taking 50 half lives too break down to safe levels, and it can be inhaled and accumulates all around the body.
It is linked to all sorts of cancers most notably bone cancer, and it is known to cause leukemia.

This discovery was made by the now massive relief effort attempting to remove some 200 tonnes of tainted water from the plant that was used to stop it from going into complete melt down.

And don't forget that it is now classified as a rank 7 nuclear catastrophe.



  1. I really hope they can get everything under control.

  2. I don't think most people can comprehend just how huge this disaster will become over time. The initial devastation caused by the earthquake and tsunami was bad, but the after-effects will linger for decades with unpredictable results.

  3. Yeah, it's hard to believe how much damage can be done in so little time. Love your post about tattoo removal btw! Followed and supporting.

  4. Japan it's getting hit so hard it's terrible..

  5. thats crazy news! thanks for that. Followed.

  6. As if it wasn't already bad enough... WHEN DOES IT END??
