One Response to Household radiation detectors to go on sale from October

    These personal household radiation detectors should be GIVEN to every household FREE OF CHARGE! Why should the consumer pay for this? The only reason why one would need this, is due to TEPCO’s incompetence in dealing with the nuclear reactors’ radiation leaks.

    Another alternative – most of the profits made from selling these household radiation detectors should go DIRECTLY to those affected by the radiation leaks. That would be good PR for the company, wouldn’t it?
