Don't go outside in Japan thanks to China 'particulates can cause cancer'.. nice scape goat

The Environment Ministry has announced that it will recommend the public do not venture outside unless necessary on days on which fine particulate air pollution is high.
Particulate air pollution is believed to be coming from China to Japan. The smog has been dubbed PM2.5 in Japan. These particles, which are smaller than 2.5 micrometers in size, tend to penetrate into the lungs and the circulatory system. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association indicates that PM2.5 leads to high plaque deposits in arteries, causing vascular inflammation and a hardening of the arteries, which can lead to heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems.
Fuji TV reported Tuesday that the Environment Ministry says it is considering recommending people do not go outside unless necessary when the airborne density exceeds 35 micrograms per cubic liter. It will also recommend avoiding the use of ventilation while at home. Separate recommendations are to be drawn up for those with a history of heart and lung problems.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that fine particulate air pollution causes mortality from cardiopulmonary disease, mortality from cancer of the trachea, bronchus, and lung, and mortality from acute respiratory infections in children under 5 years of age. Researchers suggest that even short-term exposure at elevated concentrations could significantly contribute to heart disease.
yup.. blame it on China.. nice little scape goat yeah? nothing to do with irradiation in 5-10 years......
DOES THE TERM 'ÍNCINERATING DEBRIS' COME TO MIND?.....
Let;s imagine for the moment that China had no pollution for a second?.... could there possibly be another reason for the situation calling for for the closing of air conditioning and the 'going outside'of citizens in Japan?
How does one call for the populous of a country to remain in doors and yet maintain vital infrastructure in general?
We have seen cities across the globe blanketed with such pollution, yet to ban walking and airconditioning/ ventilation?...... never in my day....
watch this space.....
now they detect Xenon from North Korea Blast... where was the testing equipment back in 2011?
Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
TOKYO — Japanese planes detected a trace amount of xenon-133 during monitoring flights over Japan the day after North Korea carried out its third nuclear test last week, the science ministry said Thursday.
The radioactive material amounting to 1.9 millibecquerels per cubic meter of air was detected from samples collected at an altitude of 300 meters off the coast of Aichi Prefecture in central Japan, Jiji Press reported.
It was the first time Japan had detected xenon-133 since it strengthened radiation monitoring in response to the test on Feb 12, the news agency said.

wow, now they can blame china AND north korea..... damn them.... japan was safe from nucliotides until now.. think of the drama down the track........
