Effets de facteurs individuels sur l’irradiation : enquête chez des enfants de Nihonmatsu, préfecture de Fukushima Volume 17, issue 3, May-June 2018



This news is based on the following article: Fujimura MS, Komasa Y, Kimura S, Shibanuma A, Kitamura A, Jimba M. Roles of children and their parents in the reduction of radiation risk after the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. PLoS ONE 2017 ; 12 : e0188906. doi : 10.1371/journal.pone.0188906


This study in the city of Nihonmatsu highlights the influence of several lifestyle factors on children's exposure to radiation, three years after the Fukushima catastrophe. Although these results do not necessarily apply to other towns, they emphasize the need to better inform and educate the population.
