FDA Says No Need To Worry About Current Leakage From Fukushima Nuclear Plant

U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorities confirmed that there is no need to worry about the radio active leaking from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan. The regulator said the leaking in to Pacific Ocean is relatively minimal and fish consumers in the region need not be concerned about the disclosure of radioactive leaking.

On every day more than 300 tonnes of water are pumped into the nuclear plant to cool the reactors. Though there are barriers, the radioactive water seeps out to the surrounding sea. The plant authorities are planning to create an underground ice barrier to stop the seepage. The plan is to freeze the soil around the reactor by injecting chemicals into the underground soil, at a cost of around $400 million

After the massive earthquake on March 11, 2011, the leakage of radioactive isotopes from the melted reactor has raised much concern.
