Why You Buy Iodine Tabs
Japan Officials: Radioactive Iodine in Tokyo Water
Feds REFUSE To Say How Much Radiation Coming From Fukushima
"The government said Saturday that small but safe amounts of radioactive iodine turned up in tap water in Tokyo and five other areas, amid concerns about radiation leaking from a damaged nuclear power plant.
The trace amounts were found in Tokyo and the other prefectures on Friday, the first day since the government ordered nationwide daily sampling due to the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology said.
A ministry statement said the amounts found did not exceed government safety limits. But tests on water, which for decades were only done once a year, usually show no iodine."
If I may, let me put this in large, red font:
There is no safe limit of radiation exposure. There is no "allowable limit".
Radiation clouds from the serious explosions won't reach the west coast until Monday and it remains to be monitored how they'll register after transversing the Pacific. Soothing talk from government and it's corrupt media mouthpieces have concentrated on the less poisonous initial outgassing from the earthquake and tsunami events. Seeing as the Japanese government has been consistently downplaying dangers we should be on high alert. The push is on to brainwash american dullards into pretending that all is well and you should go to the mall while your betters take take of things. Don't you worry your pretty little heads because we're in charge - oh look! Basketball!
