Japan Times: Radioactive strontium detected 62 km from Fukushima No. 1 plant
Strontium tends to accumulate in bones and is believed to cause bone cancer and leukemia.


The highest amount, 1,500 becquerels of strontium per kg, was detected in soil collected May 6 in the town of Namie, 24 km northwest of the nuclear plant.

The ministry also detected 1,000 becquerels of strontium per kg in the village of Iitate, 220 becquerels in the town of Kawamata and 30 becquerels in the town of Hirono.
