Minimal Health Risk

Seafood contamination from the Fukushima accident is so low that it presents essentially no additional risk for consumers.  Detectable, yes.  But at levels that are less than the natural background and contamination from other sources.  Granted, it could have been worse.  But it bears repeating that living close to a Japanese coastline where tsunamis can kill you directly is much more dangerous than living next to a nuclear power plant.
