The Fukushima Daiichi plant has about 1744 tons of spent nuclear fuel and under 100 tons of fuel in the reactors. The irradiated nuclear fuel contains the following approximate quantities of radioactive chemicals that represent a health risk when disbursed into the environment. Molybdenum 99 1 months danger (400 pounds) yellow oxide slightly soluble in water Iodine 131 2 months danger (200 pounds) potential for a few thyroid cancer deaths 90% thyroid affinity - iodized salt provides some protection yellow readily vaporized/dissolved Cesium 137 500 year danger (70,000 pounds) potential for a large number of deaths liquid near room temperature; readily vaporized/dissolved electrolyte activity - salt substitute provides some protection (potassium & sodium) Europium 155 40 year mild risk (300 pounds) white/pink insoluble 99% affinity for soil 0.02% affinity for liver and bone Strontium 90 500 year danger (70,000 pounds) red/yellow/white 10% affinity for bone - calcium supplements provide some protection Samarium 151 1000 year mild risk (5,000 pounds) grayish yellow 99% affinity for soil slight affinity for liver and bone - mineral supplements provide some protection Plutonium 239 200,000 year danger (300,000 pounds) yellow 99.9% affinity for soil potential for 700,000 fatalities Krypton 85 100 year mild risk (3,000 pounds) colorless gas - no affinity for the body outside Nuclear materials are incredibly hazardous. Nuclear fuel is replaced in rounds of 1/3 of the total about every 1000 days. Radioactive chemicals produce considerable heat in spent/irradiated fuel after power production is shut down. Nuclear waste cannot be buried because of heat produced by ongoing radioactive decay. Spent fuel rods must remain submerged in water for decades. Molybdenum - lasts a few months - does not vaporize or dissolve Iodine - lasts half a year - carried easily by water and air - vaporizes at oven temperatures Cesium - lasts several hundred years - dissolves in water Plutonium - lasts millions of years - particles carried by water [/quote] [/quote]

The difference between Japan and the United States is kind of startling. In Japan, at this point the permissible level of radioactivity in food is 100 becquerels per kilogram [...] In the United States the permissible level is 1,200. So Japan’s limits are 12 times stronger than ours, which means that we could very certainly be importing food from Japan that’s considered unfit to eat there.
