Radiation From Japan Has Reached SWEDEN! - 46 Dead So Far In Japan Since Quake Poor Medical Care
[link to news.blogs.cnn.com]

MODS: Far less than 50% of the total article



"Japan live blog: 43 die in hospitals since quake, NHK reports..."

" Low radiation levels have reached as far as Sweden, according to the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority. Leif Moberg, head of research for the authority, said there have been readings of radioactive iodine in Sweden, as expected, but the amount is "very low and it does not pose any health risk at all for humans or the environment.""

"Forty-three people have died in hospitals because of inadequate medical care since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, according to a survey by public broadcaster NHK. Power outages and lack of heat and medical supplies are cited as reasons for the deaths. NHK surveyed 255 hospitals in the hard-hit prefectures of Fukushima, Iwate and Miyagi."

"Russian authorities have banned imports of all food products from six regions of Japan, according to a news release posted on the website on the consumer protection watchdog Rospotrebnadzor. On Wednesday, Hong Kong said that it was restricting food and milk imports from certain prefectures over the radiation concerns. The United States had previously announced import alerts covering milk, milk products, fresh vegetables and fruit from prefectures near the reactors."

For Japan


"Levels of iodine-131 in the seawater were 126.7 times higher than government-set standards, the electric company said on its website. Its monitors detected caesium-134, which has a half-life of about two years, about 24.8 times higher than the government standards. Cesium-137 was found to be 16.5 times higher than the standard."

I would consider only 46 people dead a miracle. Look at Haiti, look at the Indonesian quake, at Chile. Japan is leaps and bounds ahead of them and the fact that only 46 people have died is nothing short of a miracle.

Umm...maybe you haven't followed the totals. It's actually like 9,800 dead, 17,000 more missing. The 48 who have died were those who were injured during the quake and tsunami and have since died. I will agree though, the amount of people dying from injuries SINCE the original death toll is quite an achievement. Just wanted to make sure you know there was a broader toll.

This didn't seem to get too much attention yesterday. Radiation has now reached Sweden...aren't there any Swedes on here? Are you not concerned? I wonder what the Swedish government is saying? Are they handing out potassium iodine pills?
