Tokyo newspaper reported Abe, the city mayor of Kawasaki stated they serve radioactive school lunch for educational purpose. “Students need to know they live in danger by consuming radioactive school lunch.”

On 9/4/2012, Abe, the city mayor of Kawasaki city held a regular press conference. Kawasaki is located between Tokyo, and Yokohama, which is the second biggest city in Japan. Kawasaki city has the 8th biggest population in Japan.
Although they measured 9.1 Bq/Kg of cesium from frozen tangerine, and 1.6 Bq/Kg from canned apples, they keep serving them for school lunch since this April.
About this matter, Abe commented like this below,

“危険の中で生活していることを子供たちが知ることが大事だ。”

<Translate>
It’s important for children to know that they live in danger.
<End>

He emphasized they serve radioactive lunch for educational purpose.

Yokohama city and Kamakura city stopped serving the contaminated frozen tangerine for school lunch. As to this matter, Abe also commented like this below,

“このレベルでビクビクする教育をすることが間違い。道路では車にぶつかる危険性があり、すれ違ったあかの他人に刺される可能性もある。だから人とすれ違うな、と教育しますか?”

<Translate>
It’s wrong to educate children to be conscious about this level of radiation. There is a risk of being hit by car, there is also a risk of being stabbed by passerby. Should we teach students not to pass by anyone ?
<End>
