Fukushima: To Eat, or Not To Eat?

We spoke with science reporter Geoff Brumfiel today. He writes for Nature magazine, and has been covering the Fukushima nuclear disaster since the earthquake and tsunami hit Tohoku, the northeast of Japan on March 11. Two new reports that came out in the past week prompted us to call up Geoff and get an update on the situation at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. The conversation led us to the issue of radiation release, and what is known about how soil and crops in Tohoku have fared. Here’s Geoff’s view.
