The proportion of consumers saying they hesitate to buy food products from Fukushima prefecture because of radiation fears reached 20%, up from 15% in February, according to a twice-yearly survey by the Consumer Affairs Agency released this week.

The percentage was the highest since February 2013, when the agency began issuing reports on how misinformation and harmful rumors were affecting consumer views of food and radioactive contamination.

The latest study was conducted online in August, and surveyed 5,176 adults in 11 prefectures including Tokyo and Osaka as well as the Tohoku region where the 2011 earthquake and tsunami hit hardest.

  1. Can you blame the smart people for worrying and being careful? I sure don’t! TEPCO the Japanese nuclear power company continues to lie to the people of Japan and to the world about the true levels of radiation released into the atmosphere, ground and into the Pacific Ocean! TEPCO also continues to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean nonstop every single day to contaminate the plant life, insects, fish, ocean life and animals. There is now verified proof of DNA damage and mutations throughout the food chain and we humans are next to suffer! and if we don’t detox our bodies suffer we will! Experts recommend to commence detoxing with the natural mineral called zeolite that is proven to safely remove both radiation and heavy metals from the human body.This detox is VERY important to help prevent DNA damage that will cause disease and future ongoing mutations! For more quality information do an online search for the single word Zeolite.

  2. So this study by the Consumer Affairs agency is being conducted to see how ‘misinformation and harmful rumors (are) affecting consumer views of food and radioactive contamination’? I’d say it’s having a pretty bad affect as 80% are unconcerned and 53% have no problem eating radioactive food.

  3. It’s real easy for folks to find fault(s) with other folks, while simultaneously finding little or no fault(s) with themselves. Same with countries. The fact is that: the U.S. cannot escape culpability in the Fukushima nuclear disaster. The realistic problem for ALL people worldwide is: what are we going to do to resolve Fukushima nuclear disaster? It’s not going to go away by government mandate threatening folks with jail time and perhaps worse!

    • Continuing in the same context as the above video, and also continuing with the question, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT context, the only logical answer would be for the world to unite and shut down every last one of the nuclear power plants, rather than cower to the nuclear power industry bigwigs and governmental liars.

  4. If the Japanese people are so smart why did these pinheads build a Nuclear power plant in earthquake and tsunami central???????? Building a nuke plant in the part of the world known as “The ring of fire” is just moronic.
