Radioactive iodine 1,250 times limit in sea off Japan plant

OSAKA: The operator of Japan's disaster-hit Fukushima nuclear plant on Saturday detected radioactive iodine 1,250 times the legal limit in Pacific Ocean waters nearby, the nuclear safety agency said. In a test by the Tokyo Electric Power Company, "radioactive iodine-131 at 1,250.8 times the legal limit was detected several hundred metres offshore near reactor number one," an agency official told AFP. Another agency spokesman, Hidehiko Nishiyama, in a televised press conference said that the level is "relatively high" but said that the impact on marine life and seafood would be minor. "This figure means that if you drank 500 millilitres (17 fluid ounces) of water containing this level of iodine it would reach the limit that a person can take in in one year, which is one millisievert. "This is a relatively high level." Speaking on the likely impact on aquatic life, Nishiyama...
