Nuclear expert admits Fukushima reactors melted into the ground, contaminating hundreds of tons of groundwater daily via Natural News

NaturalNews) Fallout from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster from two and a half years ago continues to silently impact health and safety around the world. After explosions in four of the six reactors, three melted down into the ground, and there is no way to simply plug the dam.

The effects of this unprecedented disaster continue to play out in slow motion. But of course, what isn’t seen remains little talked about in the media or among the public.

Recent accounts reveal that Japanese officials continue to refuse to publicly acknowledge the extent of the problem and are actively covering up the truth to hold together the appearance that everything is normal, and that all is well.

According to Takashi Hirose, author of Fukushima Meltdown: The World’s First Earthquake-Tsunami-Nuclear Disaster, there are reports of widespread contamination levels in food, including fish and vegetables, that is being distributed to Tokyo and other areas of Japan. Hirose asserts that there are credible claims that food originating in the Fukushima prefecture is shipped to other locales, then reshipped out with labels stating that it originated from other prefectures – masking its origins and hiding the threat of bioaccumulated radiation in the food web.

Meanwhile, a nuclear expert spotlighted the volume of radioactive materials – on the order of 300 tons of water per day – that continues to flow out from the melted down reactor cores at the power plant into the Pacific Ocean day in and day out, with no hope of slowing down, continually increasing global exposure since 2011.

The president and co-founder of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility, Gordon Edwards, discussed the extent of the continued contamination during a radio interview with TheGreen Majority on 89.5 FM in Toronto on December 6, 2013. Edwards holds a Ph.D. in mathematics and has served as a nuclear consultant and testified as a nuclear expert in Canadian courts.

Shockingly, Edwards stated, “There are about 300 tons of contaminated water every day going into the Pacific Ocean underground. That’s because the cores of the reactors have melted into the ground, and now the groundwater is flowing underneath the reactors and it’s washing that radioactive material out into the Pacific Ocean at the rate of 300 tons per day.”

A fresh report from RT highlighted many of the makeshift solutions being used in vain to try to contain the vast amounts of contaminated water. It quoted fallout researcher Christina Consolo, of RadChick Radiation Research & Mitigation, who said, “The site has been propped up with duct tape and a kick-stand for over two years. Many of their ‘fixes’ are only temporary.”

At least 71 U.S. sailors who responded to Fukushima aboard the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan have reportedly developed leukemia, thyroid cancer and brain tumors, and are in the process of filing a lawsuit against TEPCO for allegedly downplaying the dangers of nuclear radiation near the Daiichi plant.
