I think people are downplaying radiation popping up around the USA and other parts of the world.
The key phrase always mentioned is, “…is not harmful.”
I think that the phrase should be prefixed with–“not yet.”
I believe that the “not yet” is going to happen sooner rather than later. With dramatic (horrible) effects.
Just like it’s being said that radiation levels are the highest they’ve been since the beginning.
So clearly the situation is not improving and if the radiation can reach all these regions in low levels it can also arrive there in high levels.
Indeed radiation is manageable (up for grabs) in specified amounts; it is known that radiation is harmful regardless of amount. –it’s still radiation. The less you’re exposed to the better.
I fear for Japan and the surrounding areas. As well as any other areas that they may be affected in the future.
