EXPOSURE TO RADIATION POST-X Years
(2012/HD-CAM/55min) Shocking Accusation against Japan after March 11. That day, Japan was covered all over with nuclear fallout or “ashes of death”. In 1954, a hydrogen bomb test was conducted at a Central Pacific. Contaminated tunas were discarded and the fishermen became ill. After that, in exchange for two million dollars, all the fishes were sent to market in Japan! Cesium, secret document, easily broken bones … What we can see, as a result, is a shocking reality ‘X’YEARS LATER.
