Much focus lately has turned to the issue of possible contamination of water, milk, and food in the US, and how our network reporting of radiation levels relates to that. I have addressed this general issue at length in previous updates below, but briefly, our detectors monitor environmental radiation, which could be restated as radiation present in air, generally. If our detectors were in reasonable proximity to a radiation leak exposed to the air, and logistically positioned outdoors (as some of them are), then contaminants that ultimately could find their way into rain water or food sources would be potentially detectable. But since the 48 states are 5,000 miles away from the Fukushima leak, which is not in reasonable proximity, where does that leave us?
