Although it's easy to have a knee jerk "omg radioactivity" reaction I saw a graph (ill dig it up after this)(edit: can't find the graph (ill keep looking though.) that in perspective makes it seem much less dangerous.

Also, I'm no chemist but I do know that the most quantitative thing being released in fukushima is H3 also known as tritium. What I do know about it is that it's a hydrogen molecule of 3 which hydrogen being only 1 proton, 2 neutrons. It emits beta rays which can't penetrate skin. Here's the wiki for more. It's not harmless but overall, it's "safer" than being exposed to the cesium-137
