UN expert:Japan's view on Fukushima too optimistic

The Australian Broadcasting Commission made this statement today after The United Nations' special rapporteur on the right to health, Anand Grover, says the Japanese government should consult more with local communities to assess the real impact of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

He also stated that the Japanese culture had 'too narrow a view' on the lessons gleaned from Chernobyl.

I have commented on this attitude from the get go; 

1. Lack of information.
2. Appalling testing that is poorly reported, if at all released, and too narrow the test groups.
3. A lack of testing in areas further than the exclusion  zone.

Finally now, they are reporting on the state of affairs, even if in terms of 'future' attitudes.

The full report, and audio:
