The radioactive crisis near Fukushima isn't getting any better.
This has been something we discussed in the last few weeks, but now there are some new disturbing details.
More than 3 millisieverts of radiation has been measured in the urine of 15 Fukushima residents of the village of Iitate and the town of Kawamata, confirming internal radiation exposure, it was learned Sunday.
Both are about 30 to 40 km from the Fukushima No. 1 power plant, which
has been releasing radioactive material into the environment since the week
of March 11, when the quake and tsunami caused core meltdowns.
