The Philippines authorities discovered small quantities of radiation that came from the Japanese nuclear plant Fukushima Daiichi. The Ministry of Health informed that the radiation levels in the air are not harmful to humans. Meanwhile the report of the Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (PNRI) confirmed that the radiation came from the Fukushima central.
Philippines Ministry of Health, Enrique Ona, assured that there is no need to prohibit the exportations of Japanese food. While the Ministry of Agriculture recommended that it was safer to deny any importations of lactose products developed near the disaster zone.
Meanwhile China and South Korea, countries that are closer to Japan than the Philippines, revealed that they too have discovered small quantities of radiation that are no harmful to men.
