This is all so horrific! I feel for the nation as a whole. I do believe however, of course, that the government is down playing the radiation fear. Noted.

Thank you Anna. Noted. My heart truly goes out to the Japanese people who have to live through once again similar conditions of the post WWII atom bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These poor people are one of the few that have learned from the past, and are now forced to relive this atrocity once again. Gees Louise life is really unfair!! God speed to these people, and my prayers are with them every night.

Terrible. These are the dangers of the supposedly "clean" nuclear energy.

Agreed Alejandra. Why isn't the UN sending experts from all countries to help Japan? They need help now, not have discussions on what might happen, and to what parts of countries, if the reactors deteriorate more.

health food store here in Southern Oregon has had a run on of iodine and is out of it. We could end up getting radioactive drift on the coast if the things blow up. There must have been a real snow job to sell nuke plants to the Japanese after Hiroshima. No nukes is good nukes.

Although many and most buildings in Japan have been specifically built with "earthquake proof" structuring, I've heard that this particular nuclear plant had a neglectful construction. Cutting corners, (World Trade Center), may sometimes prove criminal.
