EPA Halts Extra Radiation Monitoring; Focus Shifts To Seafood
Quote: After a thorough data review showing declining radiation levels related to the Japanese nuclear incident, EPA has returned to the routine RadNet sampling and analysis process for precipitation, drinking water and milk, according to yesterdays Daily Data Summary.
Milk and drinking water will return to a regular quarterly schedule and will next be tested in three months. Preciptation will be tested monthly.

We hear of a new fluctuation or spike in radiation every 3-4 days. Testing only quarterly is flirting with disaster.
Don't celebrate this wise decision just yet:Japan shuts down more nuclear reactors
Quote: Japans government has demanded that a controversial nuclear power plant south of Tokyo be shut down while its defences against earthquakes and tsunamis are upgraded, in what would be first forced plant closure in the country since the accident at Fukushima Daiichi in March.
