Justin Bieber's Japan Concerts Too Risky?
Several artists have chosen to cancel their concert tours to Japan due to the earthquakes and the radiation from the leaking nuclear power plants. Unless concert promoters can prove that there is no health danger in proceeding with the tour, than they should be canceled. According to the New York Time reporters covering the Japanese disasters, "As of April 25th, More than 130,000 people remained housed in temporary shelters; tens of thousands of others evacuated their homes due to the nuclear crisis. The final death toll could raise to 20,000." . At the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant inside two reactors there is radiation so high that workers still can not go in. It is a fact that radiation is leaking and the food and water supply has been compromised in areas of Japan. Is a concert worth the risk for Justin Bieber's Tour? Unless they have a medical and radiation expert to explain the health risk of the fall out, the answer is No.
