As the Radioactive Contamination Makes its Way up the Food Chain

Fukushima continues to threaten the entire survival of the planet as authorities at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant say they found cracks in the brace supporting an exhaust pipe. They are concerned the pipe could collapse in another earthquake area around the pipe, which is contaminated with high levels of radiation measuring 10 sieverts per hour, enough to kill a person “within a few weeks” after a single exposure, according to the World Nuclear Association.

“Even the tiniest mistake during an operation to extract over 1,300 fuel rods at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan could lead to a series of cascading failures with an apocalyptic outcome." -- Nuclear fallout researcher, Christina Consolo
