Dealing with exposure

November 30, 2013


Fukushima people learn how to deal with radiation




Experts on radiation protection have met with residents around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant to discuss how to deal with daily exposure to harmful substances.

The International Commission on Radiological Protection on Saturday opened a two-day seminar in Iwaki City in Fukushima Prefecture. About 80 people took part on the first day.

Three residents from the Suetsugi district of the city, 30 kilometers from the plant, said they use mobile radiation monitors to see where and when their exposure levels changes.

They said they tested their levels after eating locally-produced food. The results reassured them it was safe to live in the district.

The residents added that many young people have not returned to the area because they are worried about exposure to radiation.

A participant said he wants experts to incorporate the opinions of residents before they decide what measures to take.
