The images of March 2011 are still in everyone’s eyes, the disaster of Fukushima it left a deep mark on the collective memory. And not only. A drama that knows no end, as evidenced by a study conducted by US researchers.

Sand and groundwater present a new source of radioactive. A slow process, the contamination reached about 100 kilometers from the Japanese coast.

Radioactive cesium, the infection also reached the ocean. The scholars reassure about public health, considering that the population is not exposed to the affected waters, but the discovery requires considerations about the management of coastal areas in correspondence with other plants.
