Fukushima - TEPCO workers have finally stopped the leaks at the Fukushima reactor site, thanks to Ronald Cole, automotive expert. According to the foreman on the night shift this evening, Mr. Isukasumo, it was thanks to a magazine article that advised the use of oatmeal and pepper.
The crew used 734,074 packages of oatmeal mixed with an equal volume of ground black pepper gathered from around Japan and its neighbors. When this was flushed into the leaking system, it sealed it up just like a radiator is fixed with the same compound.
Now that the leak is stopped, the workers have a chance to take a break and have a meal. Many are eating the oatmeal mix, which tastes surprisingly good. Many complain, however, that it is a little too hot, and is not cooling off, however.
Mr. Isukasumo had three helpings. He said it is no threat to human health.
