water unfit for babies due to high radiation.
Tap water in Tokyo and some parts of Fukushima
is unfit for babies because of
The people in Fukushima, where the nuclear
power plant was damaged by the earthquake and the tsunami, will not be able
to eat vegetables because of fears of food contamination by the radiation.
Tokyo Officials have ordered
parents not to allow their babies that are under 12 month’s to drink water
from the tap but some say that they will need a good amount of water before
it can harm them.
Many people have gone to buy lots
of bottled water because they fear the tap water is contaminated.
The leaders have also ordered that they
should not eat 11 different types of green vegetables grown locally, this
means they cannot send their goods to the market.
Ibatali have been told to stop shipments
of milk and parsley. Hong Kong, Australia and the US have already banned
products from that area, while countries like China, Taiwan and South Korea
have already been carrying out test on food imports from Japan.
There is some good news as well the
radiation levels in Tokyo have fallen below the danger level.
A Japanese secretary, Yukio Edano
had this to say. “If the food is eaten for a short period of time, there is
no real threat for the people who live in Fukushima. But unfortunately as
the dilemma is expected to continue, we are asking that food supplies stop,
and it is desirable to avoid eating foods as much as possible.
