FUKUSHIMA, Japan: Radiation, the invisible threat. There is something about having no control over a situation that makes it that much more scary.
In most danger zones, you can prepare yourself with training courses and strive to keep out of harm’s way by avoiding potentially dangerous situations. Radiation, on the other hand, is everywhere. How do you defend yourself against that?
Of course, you can wear protective clothing and carry a Geiger counter to measure radiation levels, but you are never truly safe. Radiation is in the air, sticks to your clothes through dust and it can take years to see the affects.
That’s why I wasn’t entirely surprised when my colleagues begun expressing their hesitations about filming in Fukushima.
