TEPCO knew radiation in seawater was 7.5 million above normal before it started dumping radioactive water in the ocean on Monday
The Japanese government has done nothing to stop this and, unbelievably, is just now getting around to setting radiation levels for what is safe in seafood. Presumably they will say if it’s not glowing, it’s safe.
It’s painfully obvious that the government of Japan and Tepco have no concern for human life and are deeply incompetent as well.
