Greenpeace condemns Japanese plans to release Fukushima reactor water into the sea, claims it could damage human DNA

Greenpeace has warned that radioactive water from Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant contains matter that could damage human DNA if discharged into the ocean, as reportedly planned.

Contaminated water from the now-defunct Fukushima nuclear plant contains a radioactive substance which is harmful to human DNA, a Greenpeace report claims. The paper was released on Friday morning and addressed reports that Japan will discharge 1.23 million tons of water into the Pacific Ocean.

The publication titled 'Stemming the tide 2020: The reality of the Fukushima radioactive water crisis' claims that the supposedly treated water still contains "dangerous levels of carbon-14," a radioactive substance that has the "potential to damage human DNA."

Since the earthquake, tsunami and resultant nuclear catastrophe in 2011, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) has struggled to manage the buildup of contaminated liquid at the disaster site.
