☢ Emergency Task Force refuse to test childrens urin for radiation in Fukushima ☢

31 July 2011
At an meeting held with Fukushima parents and the Emergency Task Force, parents handed in childrens urine sample to the Emergency Task Force so that they could make an internal radiation exposure test. Parents had been told that if they bring an urine sample in, they would test it. The "Task Force" simply runs away out the room! The "Task Force" says "That's not our job."

This is the transcribed text from the video.

Fukushima parent to Emergency Task Force: 
Please test the urin sample (for internal radiation exposure) as soon as possible. Also please let us know who is testing and how. There are some questions which haven't been answered yet. So we will send you a list of questions later. Please answer to these questions as well. Thank you for you're time.

(Audience applause)

Fukushima parent:
Following this, we are going to have a press conference here.

(Emergency Task Force members are leaving without the petition and the urine sample which Fukushima parents handed to them.)

Man in crowd:
Please take the petition and the urine sample.

Woman in crowd: 
Are you leaving these behind?

(The camera is now following the "Task Force" out into the hallway along with the Fukushima parents.)

Man's voice:
What do you mean "I don't need it."?

Man's voice:
Please test the urine sample.

Task Force member:
There is a reason why we can't do this.

Man's voice: 
What's the reason?

Man yelling to "Task Force" walking away down the stairs:
This is evidence (of internal exposure)!

Woman's voice:
Don't run away!

Man's voice:
We take this to media!

(The camera have now caught up with the "Task Force" and one man from the crowd is now almost holding one of the members of the "Task Force" walking.)

Man is saying:
Please take this (trying to give the urine sample to the member)

Man follows Task Force and asking:
Why didn't you take the petition?

Man to Task Force member:
You are going to be fired. I am sending this video to the central government.

Man asking:
You have to explaing why you didn't take it.

Man walking behind the Task Force:
Please take the sample.

Task Force member:
That's not our job.

Then please pass this to someone who's responsible.

Task Force member:
That's not our job at all.

Other man asking:
What do you mean "Not my job"?

You should take this. You told the parents that if they bring urine sample in, you will test it.

Man's voice:
Please take this.

(The man that earlier tried to give the urine sample is now trying to block the elevator preventing the "Task Force" from leaving.)

The man:
No! No! Don't run away!

The man:
Please associate with us on equal terms!

The man:
Where are you looking at?

The man:
Who's important for you? The central government of Fukushima people?

(Task Force members are now walking away into another elevator.)

The man:
I'm begging you!

Task Force members:
That's not our job.

The man is now inside the elevator with the Task Force members and the doors close infront of the camera.

The last thing we hear from the man inside before the doors close is him asking the Task Force members, "You don't have any children?"

End of video.

It took me some time to transcribe this for you so if you do copy my post please provide a link back to

Geiger Counters - Radiation Detection Meters - Handheld Radiation Detector

When it comes to radiation detection meters you really have a wide field of gadgets to choose from, however radiation detectors are the most common to use. First of all if you need to know what type of radiation you are looking for. There are Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation detectors. And also there is neutron emission of nuclear radiation. And all these different types of emissions have radiation detectors for a specific type of radiation that you can buy radiation detector for. Some also measure both Alpha and Beta. Others detect Alpha, Beta and Gamma. While others let you measure Beta and Gamma radiation.

What most people have use for though are Dosimeters you can buy a handheld radiation detector pretty cheap that are good addition to a survival kit. There are different kinds that you can use that will detect radiation. There are radiation badges that will tell you when radiation become high. Workers at nuclear power plants use these to inform them of how much radiation they have been exposed to. Now also children in the Fukushima prefecture have each been given a radiation badge so they know if they are exposed to radiation. Some come in the shape of a pen that you can carry in your pocket while other are made more compact so that you can attach them to your keychain. And then you have what is called a personal radiation monitor. These are also called Dosimeters and also normally called Geiger counters. Although not all use the Geiger-Muller Tube for the radiation detection some use a semiconductor instead. These and mostly the older geiger counters seen are pretty big to carry around, so they might not be best suited for a survival situation where you only need to carry the most important things. However if you have land and want to check radiation around the property and drinking water then these are the geiger counters to get because they are very well built units.

These are the once that you normally see people use. They have different units of radiation detection, because when it comes to radiation there are many standards used. some give the measurements in Rads, while other use Sieverts. Some have the maximum radiation value for the measured radioactivity quite low but they will still give you an idea of the amount of radiation in the area. With the units ranging from between background radiation 0.001 mSv/hr all the way up to 10 Sv/h. Normally a dosimeter will measure radiation in micro siverts per hour. If you were to walk into one of the reactor units at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant you probably would get an error reading from your dosimeter because the radiation levels are so high there.

Note that some places outside the exclusion zone in Fukushima that are too radioactive for people to live in have areas where the radiation levels are above 30 Sv/h. So if you are in a area that have high radiation the radiation detectors would also there go off the scale. However Geiger counters or radiation detectors are still favored as general purpose alpha/beta/gamma portable radiation detectors and radiation detection equipment, due to their low cost and robustness. Most come with an LCD Display that show you the radioactivity in the area. Nowdays you will even get alarm sound and the possibility to connect the device to a computer. Either with a Infrared, Bluetooth or USB connection.

So if you look at the radiation detectors for sale that have this, then these radiation detection meters will allow you to make maps of contaminated areas that show where the radiation is high and low. This also will help you to see which areas are becoming more contaminated over time. With several nuclear reactors in the US and around the world located near fault zones that makes it a danger if a big earthquake would hit the area there is always a good choice to have a radiation dosimeter avaliable. I'm sure many in Fukushima would have been grateful to have dosimeters avaliable at the time of the disaster and I am sure you to would be grateful to have a geiger counter handy when you need one.
