March 2011, a 9 quake triggered a tsunami struck the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster that left six nuclear reactors in three accidents. Not surprisingly, the 2011’s the area around the nuclear accident to a large number of radiation diffusion material.

To the continuing impact of the nuclear accident caused by the determination, the scientists conducted a study on the butterfly. During the study, researchers from the Fukushima nuclear power plant from six regions at different distances (59 km to 1760 km range) collected the leaves, and use them to feed a group of blue-gray butterfly.

These are fed butterfly exhibit the phenomenon of disease and premature death, worrying that even very low levels of cesium radiation material, the life of these butterflies have also been significantly affected. Researchers continue to study the impact on their generation.

Researchers for their offspring fed the same contaminated leaves. The results show that consumption of uncontaminated leaves offspring behavior is similar to the normal butterflies. This indicates that the amount of radiation their condition and their parents suffered much irrelevant.

The researchers concluded that uncontaminated food source may be able to save the next generation of butterflies. The researchers propose, we must put more effort to deal with the issue of nuclear contamination around the nuclear accident site.
