Where to start? Well, Strontium 90 has spiked to 50 million times normal in the past few months at the Port of Fukushima Daiichi. That means it is in the ocean, where it can enter bones and exoskeletons of sea creatures that use calcium. What is the site itself like? How can anyone work there? We're not told.
We are told, however, that the local water supply is not tested for strontium. Meanwhile, the lies and coverups continue, as several articles below make clear. The United Nations agencies responsible for monitoring health effects, such as WHO and UNSCEAR participate in the lies, lending their prestige and authority to reassure the world public that nuclear energy is safe. Meanwhile, the workers at Fukushima continue to be exploited, and Japan's government continues to push for restarting other nuclear reactors. There's even a new law in Japan which protects nuclear vendors from having to make reparations to victims of accidents.
The original explosions are still being studied. The spread of radiation over northern Japan is no longer in doubt. Yet the government is promoting the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo as if everything is under control.
How can people outside Japan break through the lies and denial? Read the article summaries below, then sign and spread these two petitions:

TEPCO -- Detailed Analysis Results in the Port of Fukushima Daiichi NPS, around Discharge Channel and Bank Protection, Nov. 27, 2014:
- 990,000 Bq/liter (Results published Nov. 27, 2014 -- Sample taken Oct. 2, 2014)
- TEPCO 's 'permissible limits ' for water discharge of Strontium-90 is 10 Bq/liter
Radiation concerns in Fukushima ... There is good reason for mothers to be worried about the local water supply, [Eihito Tsuboi of the nonprofit Fukushima Inochinomizu] said, because it is not screened for such radioactive particles as strontium ... Many experts believe there is ... cause for worry. A 2013 World Health Organization report predicted there would be an uptick of thyroid cancer, breast cancer and leukemia ... Masamichi Nishio, honorary director of the Hokkaido Cancer Center, agreed, saying the government has not sufficiently warned the public ... Toshihide Tsuda, a professor of epidemiology at Okayama University, said ... he strongly agrees with Nishio. "I find it problematic the Japanese public hasn 't been properly informed by the government to this date because (low levels of radioactive particles) can trigger cancer, " he said.
[P]roven falsifications perpetrated by [TEPCO] have been
pointed out ... the government kept making reassuring statements ...
perceived as a form of manipulation, generating a feeling of resentment
and bitterness that is still very strong today ... Some
Japanese will tell you the story of the TEPCO scientist who ...
went as far as to declare: "Smiling people are not
affected by radiation. Only worried people are. That
has been proved in animal
testing. " ...
