As a point of comparison, the 103 Bq/kg Cs 137 found in grass is 1/12th the amount of Cs 137 allowed in US food; 1/6th the 600 Bq/kg allowed in German-European food, and 1/10th the amount allowed within the UK itself, Canada, Australia, New Zealand. It is barely above the total radiation (100 Bq/kg) allowed in food in Japan. This does not make it safe. The US National Academy of Sciences BEIR report continues to state that there is no safe dose of ionizing radiation. Increased dose is increased risk. Even one track (shot) of ionizing radiation…
