    everyone talks about the low levels of radiation in the food that was recently found. but my concern is doesn't this radiation add up? they say the level of radiation in the air is a yrs worth/a week. add that to what you get from the sun, plus if you eat the food, drink the milk, and contaminated water. its not like you can see the contamination why doesn't the experts weigh in on this?

    As far as sealing the reactors, has anyone thought of spray on fireproofing. It sticks and seals like concrete, although I'm not sure of the chemicals in it. Thought it might help.

    Why aren't vessels at sea measuring how far the radiation is blowing? Obviously we can conduct a study of how far this radiation is spreading to aid in forseeing possible situations, and to not do so at this time is haulting any pro-active way of protecting the people the radiation may potentially harm. It's a shame that there aren't any highlights on what we can learn from this, and how it will affect ourselves and the world in years to come.

    My daughter has been planning a trip to Japan and she is to go May 9th threw May 23rd 2011. the group from the college has not cancled because they were told that it is safe because they will be south of where all this nuclear crisis is. They were told the closes they will be is 477 miles from this nuclear plant. Is that far enough away is it safe to be in Japan? They will be visiting eight different cities.
