Since the accident at the second block plant "Fukushima-1" in Japan at the station marked the highest level of radioactivity.
As reported by the Japanese nuclear safety agency, the radiation level of 500 millisieverts per hour. Symptoms of radiation sickness in humans begin to appear at the level of radiation in the 2.1 Sv.
Tokyo authorities meanwhile have reported exceeding the level of radioactive iodine in the tap water of the Japanese capital. It is particularly dangerous for children.
However, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano made some other application. According to him, the tap water is not harmful to health, despite the presence of radioactive isotope of iodine, reports NEWsru.com.
"The plumbing Tokyo prefecture found levels of the isotope of iodine, exceeding the norm — Edano said — but, according to experts, it is not harmful to health, even small children. However, they should not be allowed to drink tap water. The authorities continue to closely monitor the situation, so I ask all remain calm and composure. "
In kilograms of drinking water in one of Tokyo's water treatment pools was detected radioactive iodine-131. , The concentration of 210 becquerels, which is two times higher than the marginal rate for children under 1 year (100 becquerels). The rate for adults is 300 becquerels.
Earlier the head of the Japanese government, Naoto Kan ordered to ban the sale of milk from farms and greenery from Fukushima and Ibaraki prefectures. This decision is also due to the fact that these products are fixed higher doses of radiation.
The hero of the: Ernest Rutherford — British chemist New Zealand origin, opened in 1899, the alpha and beta radiation, and in 1903 an experimental basis they also put forward the theory of radioactive decay. In 1911, Rutherford created a new planetary model of the atom. Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, designed and built in December 1942, in the U.S. its first nuclear reactor. In Europe, the first nuclear reactor was the installation of F-1. Launching December 25, 1946 in Moscow by Ivan IV Kurchatov.Kurchatov Soviet physicist, under whose leadership was established and 27 June 1954 launched in Obninsk, Kaluga region the world's first nuclear power plant. And in 1986 of the world's largest nuclear disaster — Chernobyl
