Finding Radiation From Japan In US Rainwater?

I think this link only mentions 1 state but they are saying they have found it in 13 US States now.


Are you concerned or waiting to see what comes of it?

  • This is scary, but I'm sure if it's anything to be concerned about we will be notified.

  • There is not enough radiation in the water to worry about it. You get exposed to more radiation in an x-ray.

  • Trace amounts of radioactive iodine have turned up in rain water in PA.

    I wonder if this is why I'm having an eczema outbreak.

  • Is anyone really surprised? Radioactivity is cumulative with each exposure. True, worrying will not solve anything. What we need to do is stop using nuclear power. Bring on the downvotes if you must, but I think it is way too dangerous and we can use other, safer forms of energy.
