    So... while I don't think its likely there's an "immediate source" -- if there was, it seems that would be the likely mechanism: tainted sanitizer or tainted feed additives.
    I doubt they use radioactive iodine for the cleaning.

    It's a little known fact that Japanese radioactive iodine can burrow through the planet to hide under your bed, even when it's upstairs!

    There's a mogwai/gremlins joke in there somewhere. At least I think there is. God, I'm tired.

    Its this guys fault:



    Scientists explain that Baragon must have been a burrowing dinosaur that tunneled into the earth during the Ice Age and is now surfacing because the world's warmed up again...
    at least that was the premise in the 1965 Japanese movie Frankenstein Vs. Baragon. edit: apparently aka Frankenstein Conquers the World

    He must have went back in hiding after 1965 and continued to burrow through the earth, and suddenly reappeared because of the ground opening up from the quakes. the iodine is seeping through his tunnels and infecting our cows.

    What about it? I thought the emphasis of this discussion was on radiation coming to other parts of the world?

    For a country that is chronically addicted to unhealthy foods, is obese to the point of diabetes, stroke, and heart failure, and can't seem to lift a finger to exercise, I don't think it's going to make much difference if America is exposed to marginally higher levels of radiation for a period of a few weeks.

    Japan has some serious concerns right now but I'm in no position to do anything about it. I only care about my own shores at this point, and so far they are fine by me.

    You know, with all the bovine growth hormone already in milk, I don't think a little radiation is going to make it that much worse. Hell, it might even help to kill the increased levels of bacteria that is in some milk, due to relaxed inspection standards for dairy corporations.
