U.K. expert says limits on radiation 'unreasonable'

Seiichi Nakamura, a researcher at the Health Research Foundation, in Kyoto, said he agrees that Japan can raise the limits, but stresses his position is not as extreme as Allison's.

"My feeling is that 20 millisieverts a year is already quite high, but it may be OK to raise it a bit more," said Nakamura, who helped research cancer risk in people in Kerala, India, an area of unusually high naturally occurring radiation. "The food standard can be raised closer to the more internationally recognized level of 1,000 becquerels per kilogram."

Allison insists that he has no ties to the nuclear industry.
