I would have thought that the food safety issue would have been dealt with immediately in light of the information derived from Chernobyl.

Noted, thanks Anna. Radiation comes in different aging classifications and many are cumulative into living organisms. In other words, you get it into your system, it doesn't go away and keeps adding up. So, some of the radiation that is entering the food chains will stay, affecting everything along the way, for more years than you want to know. The marine animals and plants so beloved to eat, as an example, are & will continue to be a source of radiation. Chernobyl, 3-mile Island, and other nuclear reactor accidents, radiation leaks, may be fading in memory, as will Japan's, but Not in the living web of life. Death of the organism will not destroy the long-lived radiation types, it simply goes back into soil, water and air, for the next consumer. Japan's awful nuclear disaster, far beyond the earthquakes and tsnamis, has contributed another load of radiation to those already among us.

Devastating. Bad enough of the loss of lives, and the fear of leaving your home because of the air. Maybe the international community needs to ship food in!
