Radiation detected in milk and spinach near Fukushima


Radioactive remains have been detected in the drinking water of a town in Fukushima (northeast Japan) and in spinach from the neighboring province of Ibaraki. The Japanese Ministry of Health has asked the inhabitants of the town of Litate, in Fukushima, not to drink tap water when it detects an iodine level three times higher than normal, although it says that it does not pose health risks at the moment. On the other hand, in the city of Hitachi, in the neighboring province of Ibaraki, spinach has been found with an iodine level 27 times higher than the safety limit set by the authorities, according to the Kyodo agency. Cesium, another radioactive material, was also found in these spinach at levels higher than allowed.

In addition, iodine has been detected in milk from Fukushima , which is why the sale of fresh milk from that province has been paralyzed, where the nuclear plant is located with difficulties to cool its reactors since the 9-degree earthquake on March 11 .

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the detection of radioactive contamination in food from the areas most affected by the current nuclear emergency in Japan represents a problem "more serious than expected." Despite the fact that the Japanese authorities have assured that there are no health problems, the detection of radiation in vegetables, aggregates, milk and water has affected regional food markets.
