Safety of Japanese Water and  Foodstuffs Is Ensured



Following Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant accident, public anxiety has increased over safety of drinking water and foodstuffs. However, to protect the citizens’ good health, tap water and the foods like milk, dairy products, vegetables, meat, eggs, fish, etc. are properly inspected and imposed a ban on their shipment by the prefectural authorities in case they contain radioactive contaminants in excess of government-regulated levels. You may have seen, on TV, farmers disposing raw milk or vegetables. So, no foodstuffs with above-norm levels of radioactive materials are sold on markets. Incidentally, the permissible levels established by the Japanese central government were much stricter than those in Europe (Euratom’s).  In April 2011 EU changed its regulation to lower its limits to the same of Japan.

If you wish to know the details on the kinds of radioactive contaminants and their levels, please refer to Notice No. 0317, Article 3 of the Department of Food Safety dated March 17, 2011 by Director-General, Department of Food Safety, Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare on its Web site.
