Fukushima: Separating Fact from Fiction

With all the conflicting news and opinion pieces being written about the disaster, its hard to know what is fact, what is fiction, and what lies somewhere in-between.

This March 2014 article and news roundup  by Janet Liebsch on the website of the USFRA (United States First Responder Association) attempts to do just that.  In the article, Ms. Liebsch takes a look at some of the most popular rumors about Fukushima and its after effects and cites reliable (although primarily mainstream)  sources to support or refute these claims.

Its important to understand that the situation in northern Japan is still critical – another tsunami or earthquake could undo the progress of cleanup efforts or even cause new leaks – but this is a must read for anyone wanting a better perspective on where things stand.
