      Could Fukushima radioactive plume hit the US in 2014?

      The first radioactive ocean plume released by the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster will finally be reaching the shores of the U.S. sometime in 2014, according to a new study from the University of New South Wales-a full three or so years after the date of the disaster.

      Many researchers, and also officials from the World Health Organization (WHO), have argued that the radioactive particles that do make their way to the U.S. will have a very limited effect on human health-as the concentration of radioactive material in U.S. waters will be well below WHO safety levels. Needless to say, there is some debate on this matter, according to EcoWatch. http://ecowatch.com/2013/fukushima-radioactive-plume-hit-u-s/
