India and China Concerned About High Levels of Japanese Radiation

Hiroshima After the Atomic Bomb Was Detonated


The Hindu of India reported the following:

26 March 2011

Radioactive iodine—131 at a concentration 1,250.8 times the legal limit was found on Friday morning in a seawater sample taken around 330 metres south of Fukushima 1 nuclear power station, which was damaged in the March 11 earthquake and resulting tsunami, the government’s nuclear safety commission said…

On Saturday, authorities have identified eight radioactive substances in stagnant water in the basement of the plant, an analysis released by the commission showed.

The highest levels found in the water in reactor 1 of the plant were of caesium 137, a radioactive isotope that was released into the environment in the Chernobyl disaster. It appeared at levels of 1.8 million becquerel…Seventeen workers at the plant have been contaminated since it was damaged in a March 11 earthquake and resulting tsunami. That figure includes only those who have been exposed to more than 100 millisieverts of radiation, the maximum allowed exposure for a nuclear plant worker for an entire year.

Some in China are wondering about this danger as well:

China bans imports of some Japanese foods

Xinhua – ‎5 hours ago‎
BEIJING, March 26 (Xinhuanet) — China has announced an immediate ban on the import of some Japanese food and agricultural products…The ban covers dairy, seafood, fruit and vegetables from five Japanese prefectures. The regulator did not say how long the ban would remain in effect.

Radiation spreads as crisis likely to continue for “a long time”

Xinhua – ‎27 March 2011 (in USA, 26 March 2011)
TOKYO, March 26 (Xinhua) — Low levels of radioactive material iodine-131 were detected Saturday in Heilongjiang Province, north of Beijing, China’s National Nuclear Emergency Coordination Committee said.

Voice of America reported that “At one of Japan’s busiest fish markets, Yasumichi Tanaka said the daily catch is dwindling. “Fish supplies from the radiation contaminated regions have been totally halted.””  The USA and Singapore have also banned the imports of certain foods from certain areas in Japan.

The world is changing. Radiation will cause problems in the future, and apparently is causing some now.

The death toll in Japan from the earthquake and tsunami stood at 10,418 on Saturday, while 17,072 people were listed as missing, the National Police Agency said (

But what is clear is that Jesus warned about a time with such issues:

8 … And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be…troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

11 And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.  (Luke 21:11)

As I reported before (see Record Number of Major Earthquakes) the number of large (“great”) earthquakes seems to have increased in the past seven years.  Prophecies are being fulfilled.  Speaking of major earthquakes, here is something from the Chinese and Indian press on the one in Myanmar:

Relief operations launched in Myanmar quake-hit areas

Xinhua – Yang Lina – ‎

TARLAY, Myanmar, March 26 (Xinhua) — Relief operations were launched Saturday extensively in northeastern part of Myanmar following a 7.0-magnitude quake hit the country’s border area on Thursday…According to the latest death toll released by the authorities Friday night, 73 people were killed and 125 others injured in Thursday’s quake.

India offers assistance to quake-hit Myanmar

The Hindu – ‎26 March 2011

India on Saturday offered help to Myanmar, hit by a powerful earthquake causing loss of lives and damage to property.

“As your government rallies to provide relief and other assistance to the people in the earthquake—affected region, I would like to assure you that India stands ready to render any assistance that your government may require of us,” Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said.

Myanmar has always been a troubled nation and this earthquake is adding to its troubles.

As we are seeing from Japan, great earthquakes seem to cause more problems than simply the destruction of buildings and roads.  There is fear in Japan that simply was not there before its 9.0 earthquake.
