Japanese Kids In Fukushima To Receive Radiation Detectors

Authorities in the Japanese city of Fukushima will give radiation detectors to 34,000 children between the ages of four and 15. They will wear the devices for three months, and readings will be taken on a monthly basis. The move is aimed at reassuring parents near the failed nuclear reactor that radiation levels are safe.
