Japan Nuclear Radiation Can Travel and Hit Sweden

The world is in panic. The nuclear radiation in Japan is expanding its threat. If the current expansion goes beyond the border of Japan, nuclear radioactive materials can travel to Asia, Europe, and can infact hit Sweden. People in Sweden must urge their government to monitor in the atmosphere any radioactive clouds in the air. European counties must stay on alert as Japan’s nuclear radiation crisis is getting more serious.

Here’s the latest breaking news on Japanese nuclear radiation leak.

The Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan said Wednesday there is a possibility of excessive exposure to radiation even in areas more than 30 kilometers of the troubled nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan.

A person even outside the 30-kilometer zone could have an exposure of 100 millisieverts or more from radioactive iodine to thyroid gland if staying outside since an accident hit the plant on March 12, the commission said.
Such a level of exposure is believed to cause health hazards.

Residents living within 20 kilometers to 30 kilometers of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant have been advised to stay indoors.

Haruki Madarame, chief of the commission, said at a news conference that it is unnecessary to expand the stay-indoors zone because of the commission’s findings.
