+ - NOAA Study: Radiation from Fukushima very dilluted, seafood safe->

Submitted by JSBiff
JSBiff writes: Ars Technica is reporting on a study by NOAA scientists who surveyed the ocean near Fukushima, which concludes that while a lot of radioactivity was released into the water, as would be expected, it dilluted out to levels that pose little risk to wildlife or humans, and that the seafood is safe to eat.

Perhaps we needn't worry so much about "millions of gallons of radioactive water" being released into the ocean, like it's a major environmental disaster, as it's really not — the ocean is many orders of magnitude larger than any accidental release of radiation which might happen from a nuclear plant.
