It is a 'zone' that will continue to spread over time and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Because their is no cleaning stuff up thats smaller than atoms, the 'half-life' of some of these fission by products are long lived (thousands of years in some cases) and the natural systems of earths biosphere (wind, wave, erosion and biological) is designed to spread nutrients (and toxins) around to sustain life. Which accumulates them incorporating whatever elements (stable or not) into our own internal systems.

Damn! How do you really feel?
A Filipino is from the Philippines. I only bring that up because it is part of my response to the topic. Not the grammar police, here.
I currently live in the Philippines and one thing I have worried about is if that radiation could be have contaminated the ocean and the fish I eat. I don't know exactly where the Filipino fishers catch all of their fish. Japan isn't terribly far away, though.

There exist a couples. One of the most potent is probably C60oo, and you can make it in your kitchen. However very experimental, if you grow a third harm after taking it, don't blame me for the sugestion. Google is your friend.
Google is full of quackery , too. Nothing lessens the impact of ionizing radiation except decay over time.
fission by products from nuclear meltdowns are not used in medicine.
In addition to commercial production, 131I (half-life 8 days) is one of the common radioactive fission-products of nuclear fission, and is thus produced inadvertently in very large amounts inside nuclear reactors.
No, iodine-131, 123 , 124 & 125 are used in medical application. Destroying dysfunctional thyroid tissues use I-131.
but as said before, DNA damage is another story.
You do realize educate-yourself.org also claims man made global warming/climate change is bogus.

Show me a nuclear facility that isn't built near a source of water, they need water for cooling and it's much more cost efficient and reliable to build near to water than have to pump the water from miles away.
