Seafood Radiation Fears in Aftermath of Japanese Nuclear Fallout

Are You Worried About Radiation in Your Seafood?

In the wake of the recent Japanese nuclear accidents, fear of radiation is rampant, and from the Chinese stocking up on iodized salt to Japanese residents hoarding bottled water, consumers are in a state of panic.

At Tokyo's seafood markets, prices for fish have plummeted amid concerns that products are contaminated with radioactive material leaked from Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.

Although marine experts maintain Japanese seafood is safe, some, like New York's Eric Ripert, are extremely cautious, using their own radiation detection equipment on Japanese imports. Elsewhere, consumers are eschewing Japanese seafood altogether. Are you worried about consuming radioactive seafood?

Yes I am worried, just as worried about the toxic chemicals that are dumped illegally.

I hate to admit it, but it makes me a little paranoid. Still, I really don't think if sometimes dangled a piece of toro sashimi in front of me that I'd turn it down just because it came from Japan.
