Radiation initially comes out as a big cloud of gases from Fukushima Nuclear Plants, and that’s what you can measure with a Geiger counter. But now what we’re finding are these things called ‘hot particles.

A hot particle is defined as an alpha-emitting particle that contains sufficient activity to deliver at least 1000 rem/yr to the surrounding lung tissue.

Severe damage and disruption of tissue in the lungs are associated with exposure to these types of nuclear particles. The most relevant lung experiment is Bair’s Pu 23902 inhalation study with beagles. Twenty of the 21 dogs that survived more than 1600 days post exposure had lung cancer.

The government recommends that the maximum permissible lung particle burden for members of the public be 0.2 hot particles, and the average lung burden for members of the public be 0.07 hot particles

The average person in Tokyo is thought to have inhaled 10 “hot particles” per day throughout the month of April 2011. The inhabitants of Fukushima were estimated to have inhaled 30-40 times more than that—or up to 400 hot particles per day every day that month. In Seattle, WA in the Northwestern U.S., it is estimated that the average person absorbed five “hot particles” per day during the month of April 2011, or 10 “hot particles” per day if they are athletes who are working out. These invisible atomic particles become lodged in your lungs, intestines, bone or muscle.

Hot particles can lodge in your lung or in your digestive tract or in your bone and, over time, cause a cancer. But they’re way too small to be picked up on a large radiation detector.” In fact, plutonium in general whether in gas plume or hot particle form relatively speaking is hard for the average radiation detector to detect.
The damaged number three reactor was in its first fuel cycle using MOX nuclear fuel with plutonium. If this MOX reactor goes into full meltdown spewing plutonium dust across Japan and everywhere else, it is lights out via cancer for anyone who breathes the stuff. The half-life of various plutonium isotopes ranges from minutes to 80 million years. Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,100 years meaning it takes that long to lose half of its radioactive potency—nothing compared to depleted uranium, which counts its time in billions of years. Uranium-235 has a half-life of 700 million years. And caesium, which tends to go airborne easily, has a half-life of 30 years.

The fuel rods at all six reactors at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi complex contain plutonium. Only six percent of the fuel rods at the plant’s unit 3 were a mixture of plutonium-239 and uranium-235 when first put into operation. The fuel in other reactors is only uranium, but plutonium is created during the fission process. This means the fuel in all of the stricken reactors and spent fuel pools contain plutonium. Plutonium is super nasty stuff, especially damaging to lungs and kidneys. Inhaling or ingesting only one radioactive particle of plutonium can cause cancer.
