Radioactive cyanobacteria spreading to Tokyo area

Since some time ago we can read reports on the "black substance": some otherwise unremarkable spots of dark grey to black color which are highly radioactive. It seems that these are cyanobacteria who somehow benefit from high radioactivity... unlike us.

They have been found in Kashiwa (Chiba, a suburb of Tokyo), specifically in Mizumoto Park, which had already been reported to be a hotspot. The person who found them suffers from radioactive burns and other symptoms of radiation poisoning (anomalous bruises).

The region of  metropolitan Tokyo hosts some 30-40 million people.
