Crack leaks radioactive water into sea off Japan

There are 3 comments on the Silver City Sun-News story from Apr 2, 2011, titled Crack leaks radioactive water into sea off Japan. In it, Silver City Sun-News reports that:

Highly radioactive water was leaking into the sea Saturday from a crack discovered at a nuclear power plant destabilized by last month's earthquake and tsunami, a new setback as frustrated survivors of the disasters complained that Japan's government was paying too much attention to the nuclear crisis.

Here is how Radiation effects the human body:
Radioactive water found leaking into sea from pat at Japan nuclear plant. This can be devastating to say the least to all humankind! The effects of radiation sickness and poisoning include cancer, genetic and reproductive damage, hormonal damage, and thyroid blockage (that's why they want you to take potassium iodine, another dangerous toxin) but I wouldn't. There are much safer substances like Zeolites.

A couple good articles on radiation sickness protection that shows what you need do to test radiation levels, treat water, and what to take internally to not get sick:

Considering that oil spills are the responsibility of the oil companies to clean up and compensate for, how will Japan EVER pay for all the marine devastation that their insufficient construction and choice of location has caused? It IS their fault the ocean has been affected... how many species will be eliminated or mutated?

Maybe IAEA will reconsider any existing seaside locations risk factors. It seems obvious Japan made a HUGE MISTAKE, especially due to proximity to faults, and history with Tsunamis.

@Zeo, Thank you for the info.

@Starfish, Pointing fingers is of no use at this point. Even though Japan was warned about the risks and their disregard consequently put(s) the entire planet at risk. I would bank on the probability that they deemed that the necessary repairs would be too costly (profit before safety). No doubt they are regretful now, and yet what can they do? Blaming will not be productive. I do hope that they re-consider their energy options in the future, however, their future is uncertain at this point--as is that of the rest of the planet. They must realize the risk to their own people/country. Consequently, I worry. We are at their mercy. Will they turn their cheek on the rest of the world as they assess the probability of their own extinction? I was invited to go--to assist with the relief. I'd be a sitting duck. I've no interest in a suicide mission! I have extended humanitarian help with deep and genuine concern for their losses and their suffering. I do so regardless of perhaps their disregard of my own. The important thing is to save the world from the devastation. I worry about what radiation is doing to the atmosphere also. Solar flashes. Nuclear explosion that sinks that island and renders the entire planet doomed because of the amount of plutonium used.

Remember. We produced the plutonium and designed the reactors that were bought by Japan. Sorry, but I think that makes us an accomplice to this crime.(Sigh).
