Scientists: seafood caught near Fukushima are not dangerous

The level of radioactive cesium in fish and seafood off the coast of Japan's Fukushima Prefecture last year did not exceed the safe limit set by the Japanese government for the first time since the accident at the nuclear power plant that occurred there in 2011.

According to the Japanese news agency Kyodo, a group of researchers who conducted measurements of radioactivity, found: the level of cesium in fish and seafood is below the maximum permissible limits.

In total, the content of 100 becquerels per kilogram of product weight is allowed. Also, scientists noted that in 95% of the total amount of 8,5 thousand samples collected material cesium content was generally barely discernible.

As Kyodo quotes the words of one of the laboratory workers, "the data indicate that fish and seafood from Fukushima are safe."

It is noted that the content of harmful substances was measured regularly within a radius of 20 kilometers from the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant.
