Gosh I hate when they make misstatements like that. A lot of my friends ask
me questions about it when this happens.

USA Today has a piece on Fukushima contamination.  Here's a sample:
"In Oregon, state park rangers take quarterly samples of surf water and sand
at three locations along the coast. The water is analyzed for Cesium 137 and
iodine 131. Both of those already exist in the ocean at low levels from
nuclear testing decades ago."
Boy, that I-131 is sure persistent!
