Tokyo, Japan, March 29, 2011 /WNCNews/ – Nuclear radiation from Fukushima, Japan continues to expand. Nuclear radiation was also detected in small amounts in the Philippines. However, it’s confirmed that radiation does not bring harm to humans.
“We have detected isotope, but we want to ask the public not to panic,” said Tina Cerbolis, a spokesman for the Philippine Nuclear Research Institute told AFP news agency on Tuesday (03/29).
“That’s a very small amount in the air,” he added.
In a statement which was released today, the institute said the nuclear radiation comes from the Fukushima nuclear power plant that experienced a leak since the damage caused by earthquake and tsunami on March 11th.
Previously, China and South Korea, which are closer to Japan, also had reported that the existence of radioactive iodine-131 were detected in the air. But, people don’t need to panic because the low level nuclear radiation is harmless to humans.
