What worries me mostly is the plutonium release and alpha particles in food, maybe the radiation limits for xrays and other intentional exposures should be revised since we now have a higher background exposure.

At this time, there is no public health threat in the U.S. related to radiation exposure. FDA, together with other agencies, is carefully monitoring any possibility for distribution of radiation to the United States.
At this time, theoretical models do not indicate that significant amounts of radiation will reach the U.S. coast or affect U.S. fishing waters.

EPA officials, however, [color=limegreen]refused to answer questions or make staff members available to explain the exact location and number of monitors, or the levels of radiation, if any, being recorded at existing monitors in California.
Margot Perez-Sullivan, a spokeswoman at the EPA’s regional headquarters in San Francisco, said the agency’s written statement would stand on its own.
In the unlikely scenario that pollutants could affect fish that have traveled to the U.S., FDA will work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to test seafood caught in those areas. Together, FDA and NOAA will also inspect facilities that process and sell seafood from those areas.
The FDA has claimed that there is no need to test Pacific fish for Japan nuclear radiation reports the Anchorage Daily News but when drilled on details by the reporter, the FDA [color=limegreen]refused to answer questions and gave the reporter the run-around.
The FDA says there will be no testing of fish until NOAA testing finds cause for alarm but NOAA [color=limegreen]refuses to answer questions on what kind of monitoring has been done.

May 31, 2011 AREVA launches the construction of a laboratory to produce medical quality Lead-212 at the Bessines-sur-Gartempe site in the Limousin (France). AREVA Med, an AREVA subsidiary bringing the project within the group, thus enters a key phase towards the industrial production of Lead-212, an isotope used in the development of promising treatments against cancer. The laboratory, the only one of its kind in the world, will begin production in 2013. It will be named after Professor Maurice Tubiana, a member of the Academy of Science whose work on cancer is a worldwide reference. Anne Lauvergeon, AREVA CEO, stated that "Constructing the Maurice Tubiana laboratory reflects AREVA’s determination to make innovative therapies for the treatment of cancers available as soon as possible to both doctors and patients. The therapeutic potential of Lead-212 extracted from spent nuclear fuel was discovered by our employees, which generates pride within the group." The official launch of the construction of the new laboratory follows on the authorization granted to AREVA Med by the American authorities in January 2011 to begin the first clinical trials of a new treatment with Lead-212. Innovation in nuclear medicine is related mainly to the availability of medical quality isotopes. With the Maurice Tubiana laboratory, the production of the rare Lead-212 isotope should make it possible to treat the most aggressive forms of cancer.

Anyhow...AREVA looks like they are positioning themselves to profit from all the cancers the nuclear industry they are involved in is causing.
