1. They try to cover up the degree of contamination but it is quite serious as the numbers and graphs below will show and that is just a small fraction of the huge cover up operation. Fact is that the Japanese government lies about the radiation and the impact it will have on health as food around Tokio is found to be contaminated. Not only does it have a direct negative health impact but also will it drive food prices to insane levels soon as Japan must import much more food and its own supply will be lost. Same will be true for global fish consumption very likely as sea water has been contaminated as well.
As BOJ Injects Fresh ¥2 Trillion, Radiation Measured 20 km Away From Fukushima Is 1,600 Times Normal

While Japanese futures briefly flirted with another advance, they subsequently dropped by 1% to 9,450, even despite the BOJ’s latest injection of 2 trillion yen, which if it continues at this rate will surpass 100 trillion yen in injections within two weeks: an unprecedented feat, even by the Federal Reserve’s standards. Of particular note weighing on the markets has been the news from Kyodo that, in confirmation of our fears that zones “Under Survey” are nothing but hotbeds of unprecedented radiation, reported radiation levels are 1,600 times higher than normal 20 kilometers from the power plant. Recall that the first evacuation radius was just 10 km. Assuming a power rate of declining fall out strength, means that the radiation within the 20 km diameter circle centered on Fukushina is currently hundreds of thousands to millions of time higher than normal.
Xenon 133 Dispersion Animation – Radionuclide Has Blanketed Entire United States

Update: we are truly amazed that presenting what is a pure fact without any spin associated to it, can generate such an outbreak of insecurity and outright fear-driven responses. We had always expected that readers here can receive and interpret facts as presented, instead of demanding filtering for what some deem is unpleasant information. We urge that sub-segment to immediately and permanently orient their attention to other media outlets that does the prefiltering for them, as per the government’s mandate of not spreading panic.
Radioactive Xenon 133 (5.243 day half life) has now reached the entire Eastern seaboard, and soon will likely cover the entire world.
Additionally, below is a projection of radioactive Iodine over Japan…
And radioactive Cesium over the Pacific
