ABSTRACT
The article discusses the efforts to evacuate the Japanese people to avoid being exposed to unconscionable health risks due to meltdown of nuclear reactors at Fukushima Daiichi power plant brought by 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. Tilman Ruff of Medical Association for Prevention of War says that the plant is still badly damaged and leaking radiation. He adds that the Japanese government implemented a campaign encouraging the public to purchase produce from the area.
