The Truth About Fukushima: More Deaths Than Radiation

The accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station had a great impact on the world, but the actual damage may have been misunderstood.

In fact, in this disaster, no one died directly from radiation exposure. On the other hand, at least 1,368 people died due to the effect of evacuation in the disaster.

It is also possible to say that the number of victims increased as a result of excessive countermeasures being excessively afraid of radiation damage.

It is true that a large amount of radioactive materials were released, but the damage caused by it is not big.

It is estimated that the maximum radiation exposure of residents is 25 mSv.

Radiation is a familiar thing that exists in nature. The amount of natural radiation varies from region to region, but the global average is 2.4 mSv per year.

The current level of radiation in Japan is not a problem for daily life and future heredity. Not only in Tokyo, but also in Fukushima.
