Naoshi Koriyama’s Nov. 4 letter, “Lingering effects of Fukushima,” contains an error in fact and one in substance.

The factual error is Koriyama’s claim that workers have died from exposure to radiation. No workers at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant have died from radiation exposure. If they had, we would certainly have read about it in this paper. What we did read was the opposite: “Radiation didn’t cause Fukushima No. 1 deaths: U.N.” — The Japan Times May 25, 2012.
