A team of researchers from Hiroshima University and other institutions, investigating traces of the “black rain” which fell in the aftermath of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, has issued its findings. The results indicate that Cesium 137, a radioactive substance believed to be derived from the black rain, was found in soil beneath the floors of six sites, including residences in Yuki Town (Saeki Ward, Hiroshima City) and Akiota Town (Hiroshima Prefecture). These locations lie roughly nine to 22 kilometers from the bomb’s hypocenter. This is the first time that traces of black rain have been confirmed in these areas, and all were found outside of the designated zone known as the “heavy rain area.” Those within the “heavy rain…

regulation (Euratom) laying down maximum permitted levels of radioactive contamination of

foodstuffs and of feedingstuffs following a nuclear accident or any other case of radiological

emergency (recast) (COM(2010)0184 – C7-0137/2010 – 2010/0098(COD))



This report came out a month before the japan earthquake nuclear disaster. It made requirements of European countries to monitor and manage levels of contamination. Since Fukushima the European governments have covered up the large contamination incident in Hungary that has doomed many young people from around the Bucharest medical isotope institute, and others further downwind too. The IAEA was instrumental to this play down and cover up as were the main stream media. And the fallout from fukushima in Europe, though minor was not a minor health…
