It has been five years since the Fukushima disaster, a time when people were confounded by catastrophic disasters. However, the biggest concerns were the Fukushima accidents (machinery disorder). The mass media interprets that the 1m tall tsunami triggers this crisis. This led environment nearby the power plant exposed to high radiation for 4~6 days. In addition, the media deceive citizen that the radiation rate is under the safe level denying negative effects of radiation regarding health issues and environments. This is how media tells about Fukushima Daiichi. Yet the sad truth of the situation just highlighted how misleading the mass media were, and how they could twist the truth to suit themselves, and manipulate the people into accepting…show more content…
Although the media appraise government effort to decrease the economic damage during oil shock by constructing nuclear power plants, it is now giving the opposite effects. Before the Fukushima nuclear power plant manages to get into the meltdown process, the crops in Fukushima were having a high brand image and the farmer has made a surplus. For example, the rice from Fukushima would be sold at a higher price than other regions in Japan. However, the Fukushima Daiichi accidents reverse this common sense. People are now reluctant to purchase food from Fukushima since they are fearful of high radiation and the farmers are having the deficit even the media appeals food from Fukushima. Especially, the agriculture is the important source of their income, meaning that this misleading conception is critical for their livestock. In these days, the foods with abstract location are increasing. For example, pork from Fukushima would be written as 'pork from Japan’. According to the journalists (not mentioned, 2012 NP), 35 tons of rice produced in Fukushima prefecture was labeled as produced in Japan.

While there are 26 tons of rice from Nagasaki prefecture, it is composed of 21 tons of rice from Fukushima and others from Aomori. This means that the farmers are trying to gain…show more content…
Even though the nuclear powerplants carry risks, we should not forget how nuclear power plant has contributed to Japanese government. Plus, the disadvantages aforementioned would only occur, if there is a radiation leak. However, the reason why this writer is honestly caring about this issue is due to next coming earthquake. An earthquake, with 75% of the power of the last destructive one, has been predicted by the Shimamura professor, to hit Japan in four years time (Shimamura, 2013, NP). Moreover, a worker, who works in the Fukushima nuclear power plant, noted that the Fukushima power plant would not tolerate this earthquake. If the power plant suffers from meltdown process again, it is estimated that the mass amount of radiation would disseminate through the whole world. This problem still have time to solve it until the earthquake come to Japan. We need to get rid of this facility as soon as possible, before this next major earthquake hits and nature is annihilated. The part this report failed was that it lacks of credibility and gain a article that are extremely biased (Korean Websites). These Pieces of informations are secretary informations, it is deleted from the major
