FALLOUT MAPS FOR NORTH AMERICA
These maps, made available by the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU), show which areas of North America have received or will soon receive the highest dumps of radioactive fallout from Fukushima. The maps show during which time periods to expect incoming fallout in specific areas. It is a tragedy and a scandal that the U.S. and Canadian governments do not provide such information to its citizens. The link below will take you to a page where you can click on which radioactive fallout element to track over which area of the world. Be aware that the amount of fallout already on the ground in North America will continue to affect us for a long time to come, even if concentrations shown on this mapping (which shows current streams of new fallout from Fukushima) become less intense in the future.

Most Mainstream Media follow the Nuclear Industry’s “Script” and are not conducting Independent Reporting
Fukushima may be a Portent of Things to Come in North America (with a list of the Top Ten ‘At Risk’ Nuclear Plants in the U.S.)
ATTENTION: These products are highly uncertain based on limited information for the source terms. Please use with caution and understand that the values are likely to change once we obtain more information on the overall nature of the accident. The products should be considered informational and only indicate 'worst case scenario' releases. From what we've learned recently, it seems releases of this magnitude have not yet occurred. Furthermore, these modeling products are based on global meteorological data, which are too coarse to provide reliable details of the transport of the plume across Japan.

It is not good stuff at all. The Norwegian site clearly states that the information presented is not real, is an extreme worst-case, and is not based on accurate data. It says it right there on the page next to the graph.
AREAS WHOSE FOOD PRODUCTS MAY NOW CARRY RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT
The Entirety of the Northern Hemisphere around the world is affected by fallout, as well as the Pacific Ocean.
Most Serious: Japan, Pacific Ocean, and Pacific Rim States
Most Contaminated food areas of North America (based on fallout wind spread patterns charted by European scientific research agencies) in order of likely intensity of contamination, starting with the most contaminated:
* Entire Pacific Coast (note that much of the produce in North America comes from this region, especially California)
* Northern U.S. States close to Canada, and Canadian areas close to the U.S. (including Toronto etc.)
* Eastern States
* Central States of the U.S., and Far Northern areas of Canada
