SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Low levels of radiation have turned up in milk samples from two West Coast states, including California.
Traces of radioactive Iodine-131 were found in milk in California and Washington, according to federal and state authorities who are monitoring for contamination as the nuclear crisis unfolds in Japan. But the officials say the levels are still 5,000 times below levels of concern and do not represent a public health threat.

The gov is never gonna say something is harmful because they don't want to cause panic and they don't want people to stop buying certain things. They "approve" things for us to eat and consume every day that is KNOWN to cause cancer. Cigarettes, artificial preservatives, pesticides, growth hormones, antibiotics, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors. Oh yeah- and they allow a certain percentage of rodent hair and droppings to pass through our foods too.
