April 7, 2011 - Iodine-131 in U.S. air and precipitation in late March was
20 times greater than normal, due to radiation releases from the meltdowns
at Japanese nuclear reactors, according to EPA data.
The highest figures recorded thus far are in Idaho, where an air sample in
Boise was 84 times above normal, and a precipitation sample in Boise was 121
times above normal. The highest concentrations in the nation are on the
West Coast, Alaska, and Hawaii.
"We can't assume this radiation is harmless, and must conduct studies to
assess any health risks, especially to American infants, and children," says
Joseph Mangano MPH MBA, Executive Director of the Radiation and Public
Health Project research group.
Since the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on March 11 caused meltdowns at
multiple nuclear reactors at Fukushima, the EPA has been collecting data
from its system of 124 radiation monitoring sites throughout the country.
I-131 results are as follows:
