Regarding the Oct. 27 front-page article “Cesium still high in Fukushima fish,” I can’t express my anger, disappointment and sadness in words. How could the government — the series of Liberal Democratic Party administrations, and all the electric power companies of this country — have ever pushed on with the nuclear industry to this point?

The article begins with the most scary sentence: “Radioactive cesium levels in most kinds of fish caught off the coast of Fukushima haven’t declined in the year since the nuclear disaster started, a signal that the sea floor or leakage from the damaged reactors is continuing to contaminate the waters — possibly threatening fisheries for decades, a researcher says.”
