Japan Wants to Push A Million Tons Of Radioactive Water Into the Pacific Ocean
Despite the fish being tested and scientists saying it is safe to eat, 1 in 5 residents still refuse to eat fish and other foods from Fukushima. Many people believe the water is stored because it’s not safe to release, and they think Fukushima fish is not available because it’s not safe to eat.
Currently, the amount of radioactive water at Fukushima is still growing by 150 tons a day.
“Six years after the disaster, the three crippled reactors are still leaking water with high levels of radiation into the Pacific Ocean. Though the Pacific Ocean is a vast stretch of water, Fukushima’s radiation is reaching the coast of the United States, Canada, and Mexico, contaminating the fish we eat and the water we swim in.”
