Japan's Food Radiation Harmless

Elevated levels of radiation detected in Japan’s food supply are low enough not to pose any risk to human health, government scientists said Monday. “Even if you eat contaminated vegetables several times, it will not harm your health at all,” said chief cabinet spokesman Yuikio Edano. Still, since the radiation levels are over the legal limit, the food, such as milk and spinach, will still be blocked from distribution. In another sign of relief, U.S. officials say radiation travelling over the Pacific is harmless as well. Repairs to Japan’s damaged nuclear plant have seen progress, but are currently delayed due to needed repairs.
