end quote from March 27th 2011.
If you will notice that at Fukushima Nuclear plant the present dosage per hour varies from .3 per hour all the way to 82.0 per hour.
So, if we consider it at its present maximum there the daily dosage would be X 24d= 1968 or 39+ times
the maximum dose for U.S. nuclear workers (50)or 7.872 times the maximum dose for Japanese workers (250). If we take this out to 30 days we then get 59,040 dosage which is a fatal dose which is (1000) times 59+ or more accurately 30 days at this dosage theoretically could kill 59 people or as many as were present there during this time even millions or more. In fact a likely fatal dose could be reached likely by 12 to 14 hours spent in this particular area of the Fukushima nuclear plant.
Also, the ocean has now reached 1850 times normal within 20 kilometers of Fukushima Nuclear plant.
And if we take this out to Sendai presently at .16 presently on the 26th of March we get X24=3.84 per day or 115.2 per month which is over twice what an american Nuclear worker can be allowed to be exposed to and still work.
