APEC WATER - Japan earthquake and tsunami disaster relief

JAPAN Relief Program


Reverse Osmosis water filter systems for reducing radiation in drinking water

At APEC, we were deeply saddened to see the destruction and suffering caused by the recent earthquakes and tsunami in Japan. It was also troubling to learn that the resulting nuclear plant shutdowns had released radioactive materials into the air and water. The levels of radioactivity detected in the local water sources were so high that Japan's health ministry had to issue public warnings about their tap water. This is because contact with radionuclides contaminants in the water such as iodine-131 can cause thyroid cancers and disease. Fortunately, there are home water filter systems like reverse osmosis that can reduce radionuclides contamination in water.

Reverse Osmosis is the best available technology for water purification

One of the best ways to remove radionuclides from the water is through the use of a reverse osmosis water purification system. According to the EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency), reverse osmosis systems can remove many forms of radionuclides including beta particles, photo radiation, radium 226/228 and uranium.

The U.S. Department of State website also recommends reverse osmosis systems water filtration systems stating, "Reverse-osmosis water filtration systems will remove (nuclear) fallout contamination."
