PETER CAVE: Outraged Japanese parents have held a rowdy demonstration outside the Education Ministry in Tokyo, to protest against the government's decision to weaken nuclear safety standards in schools.

Under the new guidelines, Japanese children can now be exposed to 20 times more radiation than was previously permissible.

The government argues the new rules are essential to keeping schools in the Fukushima region from being forced to close.

my God,
doesn't this make the 2nd time this
has been changed ???

where is the stopping point ??
when everyone is a walking zombie ???

from your linked article:


Meaning if they didn't increase the maximum allowable dose of radiation, the vast majority of schools would have to close, putting the education of hundreds of thousands of children on hold.

Someone might want to tell Japan that, changing the "Legal" toxic limit, doesn't actually change the amount of damage done to the human body.
