I know that its easy to over react to things like this....

but please try not to be so emotional about sizing up what is going on. Being rational and reasonable is why the Ron Paul movement is getting traction. I just so happen to be a nuclear engineer, and this hysteria is an over reaction to the aftermath of the Fukishima disaster. I'm not going to say that there is no impact from the failed reactor cores or the damaged spent fuel pools - there most assuredly will be some residual rise in airborn contamination as junk continues to be released into the atmosphere. But radiation does not show up as symptoms in the thyroid for years after exposure. The likely problem is people over reacting to the issue and over self medicating themselves with potassium iodide. Thiss has happened in the past. There will not be any three eyed fish in our future - no Godzilla's rising up in the sea of Japan - no attack of the killer tomatoes. Folks, be rational, do some research, and use reliable sources like the national academy of sciences or the nuclear regulatory commision. Japan has a heap of trouble on their doorstep, but it is not an insurmountable problem, and we in the US will be OK.
