That's not actually true. I am concerned, my concern though is less about the food as it pertains to my health but more about
1) the regions that are most affected - the risks Tokyoites face pale into significance against the situation in Fukushima and
2) vested interests corrupting and distorting information, and so few checks on whether people are endangering others in efforts to profiteer. The incentives for selling goods suspected to be contaminated are high, the ability to police people doing so are very low.
I'd really like altruism to shine through, but it's not going to happen. Perhaps some on a small scale, but not systemically. It's not the way the world works, despite my naive hopes to the contrary.
I have too many things I have to write for uni at the moment to be able to take the time to do justice to the thought bubble though....
