Japanese green tea under direct threat from nuclear radiation...
Because of the fall-out from the Fukushima nuclear plant, Japanese green tea, well recognised around the world for its purity and health benefits, has become contaminated by radiation, as have Japan's agriculture heartlands in general.
Japanese authorities said recently that green tea from the biggest Japanese tea-growing area,Shizuoka prefecture, now contain radiation levels higher than normal. This has caused debate and doubt among local and national officials on how to measure radiation and what is exactly a safe level.
