Are we being subjected to media hype and sensationalism, or a Japanese Government cover-up? Bearing in mind that a cover-up can be exposed by anyone with a Geiger counter, I suspect the former.
BTW, does anyone know what the effect of ionising radiation is on digital images? It's known to fog film.
Minute quantities are detected half the world away by the fact that they are unusual isotopes having a "signature" that could only come from the reactor. Since there was a previously established maximum level of allowable cesium in fish they may have tested them in the past, or occasionally. Or maybe not. Who knows?
