COMMENT MADE AT MY BLOG BY MARKENSEI:
I live in Fukushima city and I can attest to the manipulation of radiation data. Last week I took a drive to the now ghost town of Idate. At the city hall there was a live radiation level LED display hooked up to a locked box that one could only assume was the Geiger. Anyways the box read 3.65 micro seiverts per hour in large orange led numbers (I have a picture on my iPhone of it). That night on the news when they give the radiation reading by city they reported Idate as 2.5 micro seiverts per hour.. I had just been there 8 hours previous to the broadcast...
Also I have a dosimeter which I use to take 'actual' readings. What I do is take a walk for 20 minutes and have my dosimeter in my cargo pocket at knee level. After 20 mins I take to accumulated dose my dosimeter recorded then multiply it by 3 and I get the true ' per hour' rate for the area.
For example when an area that is said to be at a rate of 0.54 micro seiverts per hour (based on the local ward office testing results) is tested the calculated hourly rate is actually 1.5 micro seiverts per hour.
The West side of Fukushima Station calculates out to be 3.7 micro seiverts per hour where the publicly published level is 1.5 micro seiverts.

Please... Do not be deceived.
The situation in Fukushima is just getting started. Any notion of this mess being cleaned up in the next few decades is seriously mistaken.
The melted cores of at least two of the reactors are believed to have breached both the pressure vessel AND containment vessel.
#4 has a cooling pool filled with MOX fuel. The foundation of the structure is weak. The structure is visibly leaning. Supports added beneath the pool.
Tremendous amounts of water are being pumped directly into the failed reactors in an attempt to speed the cooling of the molten cores. All of this water is now highly radioactive.
Filtering systems are being designed on the fly to try and treat the water. These are performing far less effectively than desired, when they work art all. A bigger problem also comes in safely handling the now highly radioactive filters.
Nearly every segment of the Japanese food chain is being impacted. Dangerously high levels of radiation are being found in rice, vegetables, mushrooms, tea, nearly all dairy products, drinking water, fish, seaweed, etc.. Oh, almost forgot. The rice hay being used to feed the cattle... also highly radioactive. Radioactive beef is reportedly wide spread throughout the country.
This is just a start of the problems Japan and the rest of the world are facing. The human toll, over time, should be tragic. Look for problems to start appearing around Oct-Dec, when the first full or near full term babies start showing up since the accident. As radiation has the greatest impact on DNA during cellular division (which is raging along during the gestation process and well into ones growth), it is highly likely you will being seeing an increased incidence of deformaties, chilhood cancers and any number of health issues.
A rough explanation, but honestly representative of what is before us.
Keep in mind that GE designed these reactors.
If you are wondering why this has dropped completely off the radar of the MSM, at least part of the explanation could reside in GE's list of media holdings.
