You all have probably read this but last time I checked, not many people pay attention to what's reported on Yahoo. Or, at least they don't in my
"FUKUSHIMA, Japan – Technicians prepared to vent radioactive gas into the air Sunday because of a new spike in pressure at Japan's crippled,
leaking nuclear complex, while a safety official said protective iodine pills should have been distributed near the plant days earlier. Radiation, a
danger for days in areas around the plant, already has seeped into the food supply, with the government warning that tests of spinach and milk from
areas as far as 75 miles (120 kilometers) away exceeded safety limits. Tap water farther away turned up tiny amounts of radioactive iodine in Tokyo
and other areas."
That's interesting, I thought we were told that the radiated foods did not pose a health risk. So if they do, would it also pose a potential risk
over in California where there is radiation or are the levels still low (Haven't checked in a while)
So the government was supposedly "Caught off guard" by the accidents severity and belatedly realized to give out those iodine pills? Since Japan is
prone to Earthquakes and tsunamis and adequately prepare for those, why would they not have prepared for possible nuclear hazards? You would think
so, after having fifty-three nuclear power plants in their country, but then again, common sense went out of style years ago.
