Radiation found in California Milk

Radiation found in California Milk
On March 31, 2011, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency & FDA has detected small amount of radioactive iodine-131 in California milk sample.  The iodine-131 found is 5000 times lower than the FDA limit, so drinking these low radiation milk should not increase cancer risk.

The good news is the half life of iodine-131 is eight days which means the level of radiation will drop by half in eight days.  As long as the situation of Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant under control, there should be not health risk on consuming California milk.
