Bay FM 99.9 – Byron Bay Australia, Feb. 26, 2014:
Dr. Helen Caldicott: Things are grim — it gets actually worse by the day.

Dr. Helen Caldicott in Kyoto, Japan, Mar. 8, 2014:
Dr. Helen Caldicott: A more realistic estimate of contamination is 60,000 square kilometers, occupied by 46 million people including parts of Tokyo and surroundings. As you can see (map on right), the whole land mass is contaminated to a greater or lesser extent.
