Now that I’m writing less and less in this blog I may begin to start a new post each time that I write something new.
These last hours the news was the gray smoke coming out from reactor number 3, the MOX one. It is the most dangerous reactor as it contains MOX. I wonder if the nuclear plant that I have nearby is a MOX one.
This reactor has plutonium too but not as a result of fission but as a component of the material used in this reactor to work.
On the other hand the radiation on food seems to be more worrying than previously thought.
I am so happy that nuclear energy is so safe. If being so safe you have so many people displaced, you have problems with the food, you stop tourists coming and you sacrifice the life of workers with too muc radiation, well if all this happens with a safe energy I do not want to imagine what may happen if the energy was unsafe …
Milk, spinach from the zone near Fukushima has been radiated. Water from the tap in Tokyo has been found to contain radiation.
I have also read that it has been advised not to drink tap water but I do not know if this is for Tokyo or a zone nearer the nuclear plant.
Will the nuclear industry pay to all the psychological disorders that the nuclear disaster is bringing to people?
