Are you worried about radiation from Fukushima?

Although I'm aware of the risk of radiation in Fukushima, I don't think about it very much living here in Fukuoka.

What does the media talk about when it comes to radiation and Fukushima?

The media was reporting that people who have evacuated from Fukushima to another prefecture have been discriminated against because of the radiation.

Do you talk with your friends and family about radiation from Fukushima?

After the earthquake, I  had more conversations about the tsunami rather than radiation; but I don't have those conversations anymore. As far as I can tell, everyone including myself is just desperate to live their current lives.
