Japan’s nuclear agency sorry for `angry wife` quip

A government backed research agency in Japan has apologised for comparing radioactive material to an angry wife quarrelling with her husband.



Melbourne: A government backed research agency in Japan has apologised for comparing radioactive material to an “angry wife” quarrelling with her husband, on its website.

According to Kyodo News, the Japan Atomic Energy Agency has already dropped the link from its homepage, after the comparison triggered an outpouring of criticism.

On their webpage, the agency had tried to explain the difference between radioactive material, radioactivity and radiation by comparing them to a wife and her behaviour in a marital squabble, the Courier Mail reported.

With an illustration, the page noted: “Wife’s screaming to her husband can be compared to radiation, her agitated state to radioactivity, and the wife herself to radioactive material.”

“We would like to apologise for creating unpleasant feelings,” an agency official told Japanese daily Yomiuri Shimbun.
