The government set its first radiation safety standards for fish Tuesday after Japan's tsunami-ravaged nuclear plant reported radioactive contamination in nearby seawater measuring at several million times the legal limit.

The plant operator insisted that the radiation will rapidly disperse and that it poses no immediate danger, but an expert said exposure to the highly concentrated levels near the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant could cause immediate injury and that the leaks could result in residual contamination of the sea in the area.

The new levels coupled with reports that radiation was building up in fish led the government to create an acceptable radiation standard for fish for the first time. Some fish caught Friday off Japan's coastal waters would have exceeded the new provisional limit.[/quote]


The funny point in this is how gov't see fit to change standreds depending on situations in order to favor them...

How would you like a radioactive fish for dinner?

Can someone remind me as to why nuclear is still safe... Seems like putting out a nuclear fire may actually pollute the oceans ...
Just like would you eat anything near a oil well? and all the chemicals they have sprayed into the oceans?

It is really a crime what we do to our own planet these days.....

its too bad animals can't talk or have a judical/justice system, cause everyone of us would be guilty and facing death...Mad

It seems to me that nuclear power is still a reasonable option. Is burning coal a better option? solar and wind are not going to fix our energy problems any time soon so what is better?

I'm assuming they decided the danger from radiation was less than the danger from starvation/malnutrition and acted accordingly. I wish our government was as flexible.
