Once again, no specific dose provided so what the workers have been
exposed to is anyone's guess. And what is the definition of safe? Is this
a dose that meets the regulatory limits in Japan? Is it a dose within the
250 mSv the workers are allowed for saving life? Are these whole body
exposures or extremity exposures, where there are higher limits? There is
nothing learned from this one sentence in the article. It is meaningless.
