In this article vegetables such as broccoli and cabbage were found to have radiation detection. According to Japans Health Ministry report the radiation “drastically exceeding legal limits”. Not only in broccoli and cabbage but also 11 other types of vegetables. Food and Drug Administration says that they had “ an import alert covering milk, milk products, fresh vegetables and fruit from any four prefectures near the Japanese reactors”. What isn’t in danger? And is it ok now? Well they are currently testing the items and all of the reactors are being monitored. It makes you really think what amount of radiation is to high? Well if someone keeps eating these vegetables everyday for an amount of about 3.5 ounces then it would not be so safe for anyone anymore. This is dangerous when you really think about it. I know I wouldn’t want to find out that I have so much radiation in me. It is scary to think what amount of food got out before they caught the problem. Officials or those in charge should be concerned not only on stopping what is being distributed but making sure that those who got what was distributed do not get sick from the radiation. But now I see that they say its no big deal because “ it is equal to the amount of radiation a person typically receives from the natural environment in a year.” So basically it is like they are saying people receive radiation anyway so it does not matter.
