    Is that safe with today's levels, or the pre-Fukushima levels of Canada's agencies and the FDA? Or is that another tinfoil hat claim? I'm not trying to bait or be sarcastic here, I'm genuinely serious, because
    I've tried to track this information down and failed fairly miserably, at least as far as sources that I can easily identify as legitimate.

    It's that safe today. They'll be checking more as the radiactivity spreads. The standards for "safe" levels were set years ago and not adjusted after Fukushima.

    I'm gonna try to see if I can find verification of that
    somewhere. Maybe old FDA or Dept. of Ag. publications or something. I
    have seen that crap about the FDA/EPA and the Canadian equivalent touted
    so frigging much as far as how they raised the standards for 'safe'
    bequerels in food and the environment ever since Fukushima first
    happened that I really want to have a citation on it, should this be the
    case. At least I'll be able to go back to the people that first got me thinking that this was the case and shove the citation in their faces.
    :P Maybe they'll be a little less quick to tout such theories as fact
    in the future, unless they're just straight up trying to scare the shit
    out of people for fun.

    Let eme know when you find it. I want this data too.

    Oh, thanks for replying. I ended up losing the post-it to be looking for this data, I'll get on that crap right nao.

    Guh up the effbomb down wif yr bad self; seriously. That means 'shut
    the effbomb up, in the parlance of the first child I raised from birth
    on . . . I recommend it because my patience with people that are only
    interested in passing judgement and making pointless jabs without
    knowing the exact facts about what they're dealing with is waning.
    Consider yrself warned.

    Best I've found so far is this:
    * http://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffmcmahon/2013/04/10/epa-draft-stirs-fears-of-radically-relaxed-radiation-guidelines

    I'm gonna do some more looking in a bit here,
    but I figured I'd drop that here first just in case my
    tasks take me beyond my ability to stay awake tonight
    before I get back to looking more into this. The link
    that I cuntpasted here seems to indicate that the FDA
    hasdn't (at the time of apr. 2013) actually lowered
    its standards, but it had printed an interim guideline
    at one point that directed agencies responding to
    water source and other natural resource hazard cleanups
    to not bother until it hit a point some 27,000 times
    more contaminated than the original 'acceptable limit'.
    Some of the wording in that article and the quotes
    from the federal responses to inquiry about it are
    worded carefully enough that you can kind of see them
    fencing around it. It's worth a peek, IMO.
