We have plan to travel to Los Angeline in the next 1 month but are concern about the radiation in Japan hitting US.
I think you should be more concerned about being mugged in LA. Though I wouldn't eat any sushi as a great deal of fish comes from Japan and the ocean is becoming increasingly irradiated there. The drift of radiation in the air concerns me, but it is extremely low. I'm mostly just pissed at the Japanese for building a crappy plant on a fault line, and at General Electric (GE), the makers of the reactor. over 8 years agoAnswered by Stephen Bishop via WorldNomads.com
Andy, Singapore is MUCH closer to Japan than America is. Are you concerned there?
Stephen's right: breathe the air, stay away from the fish.
Stephen, do you have any idea how many of America's reactors were built by GE on fault lines here? I believe every single on in CA except maybe for Sacramento. The Stanford Linear Accelerator is right on top of the San Andreas. over 8 years ago
It's true that the upper atmosphere jet stream would carry any radiation eastwards to the north-eastern United States, but the experts (not Japanese) insist that any radiation would be of such a low level as to not be a threat to human health.
If you don't trust the experts how about this facebook page. A Japanese man living in Tokyo is taking his own radiation readings with a geiger counter.
It's close to normal and way below any level that's a threat to human health.... and he's 250kms from the nuclear power plant. Los Angeles is a lot further away. over 8 years ago
