UPDATE: February 26/2011.
Saitama, Japan – The situation came to mind this weekend as the UFC 144 (Mixed martial Arts) was held in Saitama, Japan, just north of Tokyo and close to where the tsunami occurred, which hit last March. My first thought was, did UFC contestants and the media attending from all over the world, have second thoughts about attending the still radioactive area.
Read more about Japan and how the radiation is still affecting the animals HERE.
Many are under the illusion that the dangers have passed, but experts say it could take another 10-20 years before it is safe in the immediate area of the meltdown. Not a very bright prospect for the residents of Japan and the many animals who are still wandering near the plant.
I must admit, I will not be going anywhere near Japan, for a very long time.
