Posted in: Fukushima's cesium spew - deadly catch-22s See in context

To those distressed by the "lack of sourcing," would refer them to the original article at truthout.org which contains all the linked sources embedded in the text - http://www.truth-out.org/fukushimas-cesium-spew-eludes-prussian-blues-deadly-catch-22s-japan-disaster-relief/1308930096. Don't know why they don't appear in the JT version here, but would like readers such as Smorkian to know this is not simply an "opinion piece." As noted, I did in fact talk to a government rep at the MHLW (Kusumoto-san of the Food & Drug Dept) who explained that no matter what other countries' health departments said or did all pharmaceuticals coming into Japan would be treated as "new drugs" and have to pass through all the hoops and gauntlets of a totally untested medicine. "Japan just has higher standards." Whether that is true or a relic of the non-tariff trade barriers of yore, I shall leave to your personal judgment. I just suggest you reference the FDA docs cited in the original piece or the British Health Services guidance - http://www.hpa.org.uk/Publications/Radiation/DocumentsOfTheHPA/RCE17UseofPrussianBlue/ - and decide for yourself.

Best wishes, david k-
