On a GLOBAL SCALE, the amount of radiation released by Fukushima IS miniscule. If you look at the amount of radiation that is released from natural
sources every year, it's a very small amount. The difference is that it was all released in one place.
But did you actually READ the levels that those articles mentioned? In one, at 20km from Fukushima, you would have to stand outside for 27 DAYS to
reach the maximum allowed limit for a nuclear plant worker in the US. The ground contamination would take a YEAR to reach the levels after Chernobyl
that would trigger land use controls. The water never even reached a level considered dangerous for INFANTS to drink. People were told not to let
them drink it, just to be safe, but it never reached their dangerous levels.
A typhoon hitting the area is NOT going to become dangerous from the radiation, or spread massive amounts of radiation after crossing Japan.
