One of the largest earthquakes recorded hit Japan last Friday, triggering off a series of catastrophic events and leading to countries around the world stepping in to help. But are we the ones who are going to need help next?
According to naturalnews.com, experts have ranked the radioactive disaster in Japan a level six out of seven on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES), with seven demonstrating that “widespread environmental and health effects are to be expected.”
As of right now, a threat to the world’s food supply is posed and officials expect radioactive particles to reach the Pacific Ocean any day now, the site notes.
These particles, the article explains, can get “caught in the jet stream and travel the world over,” being inhaled by species or attaching to raindrops and embedding in the soil, contaminating crops and drinking water.
This radiation poses a definite cancer risk even in the slightest amounts with children being the most vulnerable.
It is important for everyone to be aware of the risks of cancer and ways to prevent it by following experts’ advice as they continue to access the situation in Japan and around the world.
