So where do you think he should go? Why are you all telling him to just 'take off'? You DO realize that inside he has at least some measure of protection. He lives in Tokyo....so he should just 'take off' and head closer to the danger?

Or are you advising a teenager to just run away as far and as fast as he can without any guidance or safety?

Again....going outside may be the very last thing he should do! He is on a MILITARY base! They obviously have the best ability to monitor the air and determine what is best for him...not a bunch of strangers sitting safely behind their computers on the other side of the world!

OP, are you on a U.S. military base? If you are U.S. citizen, you should just have your parents send you back to the States until this whole thing blows over. Stay with relatives or whatever, just get out of there.

Thats what I don't get, they say its only an X-Ray. The difference between this and and Xray is that an Xray takes a second on 2 and this is constant. Do they think people are retarded? Jeez.

While I agree it's better to stay inside than outside, what if the worst case scenario occurs and radiation keeps piling up outside? Then you inevitably will breathe it in and have to face it unless they have some bunkers that are radiation proof. Would it not only be safe inside if the outside levels eventually go down?

Problem is this situation is just all around bad. If I was in his place I'd be struck with fear and probably stay where I am unable to move. Just the thought of it is a bit unnerving.

Do you have a geiger counter? Where are you getting your readings? What are the readings?

God Bless mate. You can use iodine tincture if you can't get potassium iodide. Stay inside...underground if possible.




According to research by Health Physicist Ken Miller, Hershey Medical Center, using 24 healthy adult male subjects, an adult could get a blocking dose of stable iodine by painting 8 ml of a 2 percent tincture of Iodine on the abdomen or forearm approximately 2 hours prior to I-131 contamination. The abstract of his study titled "Effectiveness of Skin Absorption of Tincture of I in Blocking Radioiodine from the Human Thyroid Gland" from Health Physics, June 1989, Vol. 56, No. 6, pages 911-914, states:

"Although there were large variations within each subject group in regard to serum-I levels and thyroid uptakes, the increase in serum-I concentration after topical-I application was effective in reducing the thyroid uptake of I131. The authors conclude that in the absence of KI, most humans would benefit from topical application of tincture of-I, and that in some the effectiveness would equal that of oral KI."

###. I'm wishing the best for you all my friend.
If I were rich, I'd be personally flying out to help evacuate you all as best I could.

You'll get to safety in time, don't worry. The build up of radiation is a slow process, relatively.

Im not sure there is much he can do, like a few posts above he cant just run away, he has no guidance or anything of that sort. Options i see are: Fleeing japan until all it is safe to return, or sit tight and hope for the best (which i think officials are monitoring for).

This is a very very tough situation to be in, So try be in his shoes and see his situation from his perspective.

Please calm down. Who says I am sitting safely on the other side of the world typing this? Going outside in Tokyo is not dangerous.. at least not yet. It is for him and his parents to decide what to do when the time comes. People here are just giving their opinions. There is still time to safely leave Tokyo if he and his family choose to do so. I seriously doubt all of Japan is in danger. I certainly hope not.

Yes stay inside.

The thicker the walls are , the better.

Go to the deepest part of the building you are in.

Radiation will be blocked by thick objects, the thicker the better.
The more stuff between you and the outside the better.

When and if they form an evac, move quickly and orderly towards your destination.

Stay inside and monitor your health consistently. Report anything abnormal to those in charge around you.
Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, etc.

You need to keep track of how you are effected and report that info so that the best options can be taken to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you.

Good luck and God be with you.

I also learned years ago that humor has its rewards, even in times of peril... never lose your sense of humor...

Since your in japan, this joke might be fitting?
