Thanks.
This looks
good.
I
was
curious
if
there
had
been
anything
done
regarding
fish
andcesium
being
found
in
fish
and
to
whatlevels
since
fishing
is
an important
industry
in
Japan
and
sea
products
(fish,
etc.)
are
a
significant
part
of
Japanese
diet.

Summary
of
Radiological
Hazards
in
Japan
The
situation
at
theFukushima
Daiichi
Nuclear
PowerPlant remains
serious
although
there
are
early
signs
of
recovery
based
on
plant
conditions
and
decreasing
doses
in
and
around
the
power
plant.
This
nuclear
incident
raises
concern
for
the
possible
impact
of
radiation
on
the
Japanese
public.
