"Tokyo Electric Power Co. officials said levels of radioactive iodine in water at the plant spiked to levels 10,000 times permissible limits, preventing workers from getting near the water"

Engineers speculated that the radiation spikes may be coming from a partial meltdown of the fuel core of reactor No. 1.

"The amount of the radioactive iodine-131 isotope in the samples, taken Wednesday some 330 meters (361 yards) into the Pacific Ocean, has surged to 4,385 times above the regulatory limit, this tops the previous day's reading of 3,355 times above the standard -- and an exponential spike over the 104-times increase measured just last Friday"

Officials have downplayed the potential perils posed by this isotope, since it loses half of its radiation every eight days.


Amounts of the cesium-137 isotope -- which, by comparison, has a 30-year "half life" -- have also soared, with a Wednesday afternoon sample showing levels 527 times the standard.


On Thursday, Hidehiko Nishiyama, a Japanese nuclear safety official, reiterated that seawater radiation doesn't yet pose a health risk to humans eating seafood.


Michael Friedlander, a U.S.-based nuclear engineer, explaining cesium might linger much longer in the ecosystem. "Plankton absorbs the cesium, the fish eat the plankton, the bigger fish eat smaller fish -- so every step you go up the food chain, the concentration of cesium gets higher."


Fishing is not allowed within 20 kilometers (12 miles) of the plant"

"Japan's nuclear crisis will be bearing their burden for years to come"

As if that prospect weren't bad enough, and as the dangers they face seem to get worse by the day, the basic conditions in which they're living and working are also inexcusably bad


The power company's so-called “feed and bleed” approach, in which fresh water and seawater are being poured into a reactor and stored fuel pools, could go on for months or years.


It's already making workers' bad conditions significantly worse: 


As more water goes in, more contaminated water pours out, collecting around the work site in trenches and pools that workers paradoxically must avoid and contain"
