“Scientists and doctors are calling for a new national policy in Japan that mandates the testing of food, soil, water, and the air for radioactivity still being emitted from Fukushima's heavily damaged Daiichi nuclear power plant.”
UPDATE (12 November 2011): In early October 2011, Japanese doctors began examining 360,000 children in the Fukushima Prefecture for risk of thyroid cancer. These tests will be done every two years until the children reach the age of 20, after which tests will be done every 5 years. The testing was to have started in 2014, however, it has started earlier at the request of concerned parents.

"Independent monitoring of radiation levels is being conducted following concern about the lack of Japanese government monitoring. The findings are alarming. According to one physician, Dr Kodama, the total amount of radiation released over the period of five months from the start of the Fukushima nuclear disaster is equivalent to more than 29 "Hiroshima-type atomic bombs" and the amount of uranium released "is equivalent to 20" Hiroshima bombs.
Doctors measuring radiation levels in children
In late June, dosimeters were given to some 34,000 children aged between 4 and 15, living in Fukushima 45 miles from the plant, after abnormally high radiation levels were recorded in the area.
