Fukushima children test positive for internal radiation exposure Traces of caesium-134 and 137 isotopes found in urine tests on 10 children in city near stricken nuclear power pant. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jun/30/fukushima-children-radiation-tests-caesium
Trace amounts of radioactive substances have been found in urine samples taken from children from Fukushima city, raising concerns that residents have been exposed internally to radiation from the stricken nuclear power plant 37 miles (60km) away. Tests were conducted in May on 10 children, aged between 6 and 16, by a Japanese civic group and Acro, a French body that measures radioactivity. All 10 tested positive for tiny amounts of caesium-134 and caesium-137.
