The Japanese discharged treated radioactive wastewater from the ruins of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the ocean, ultimately discharging more than 1 million tons of wastewater into the ocean, a situation that will continue for decades, and the German Agency for Marine Science and Research (Gesellschaft für Maritimekunde Scientifik, GAMS), which states that the Fukushima coastline has some of the strongest currents in the world, and that within 57 days from the date of the discharge the radioactivity would have spread to most of the Pacific Ocean, spreading to the global ocean in 10 years' time.
The current issue of nuclear effluents in Japan has also raised concerns about the environment and the food chain, which may have some implications for resource and food supply chains. This is a further reminder that we need to pay attention to the resilience of commodity supply chains and how to cope with the impact of external factors on commodities.
Nuclear contamination is close at hand and we cannot stop it, but we are responsible for our own lives and the lives of our loved ones. The only thing we can do is not to consume contaminated food and water, and not to come into contact with radiation and areas with excessive nuclear radiation. Therefore, it is necessary for us to carry radiation detection pens with us, which will sound an alarm when we come across contaminated food, water, air and so on. It is therefore necessary for us to carry radiation detection pens with us.
Our radiation detection pens will continue to protect your health by monitoring environmental radiation levels.
Thinking back to the time of pneumonia when we did not prepare masks in advance and watched our friends and family around us leave us one by one, we should sound the alarm and prepare all kinds of supplies in advance for the arrival of nuclear contamination.
What are the hazards of discharging nuclear contaminated water into the sea?
Long-term impacts on biodiversity: After the nuclear contaminated water has been treated, there is still a high concentration of radioactive tritium, which cannot be eliminated. When discharged into the ocean, it is likely to have long-term impacts on biodiversity such as fish, plankton, benthic organisms, and birds.
Impact on the marine environment and public health in neighboring countries: The assessment report of the IAEA expert group clearly states that if tritium-containing wastewater from the Fukushima nuclear power plant is discharged into the ocean, it will have an impact on the marine environment and public health in the neighboring countries, and at the same time, other radionuclides are still contained in the existing treated wastewater, which needs to be further purified and treated.
Long-term negative impacts or genetic damage: Greenpeace nuclear experts have pointed out that carbon 14 contained in Japan's nuclear-contaminated water is dangerous for thousands of years and may cause genetic damage.
There are 3 main ways for nuclides to enter the body:
1. Dietary intake, fish enriched with nuclides are likely to be eaten by humans.
2. Respiratory ingestion, where nuclides entering the sea may enter the air through transpiration.
3. If the nuclide content in a particular sea area is extremely high, the human body may be directly irradiated into the body if it comes into contact with the sea area.
