Japan’s radioactive farm levels

New research has found that radioactive material in parts of north-eastern Japan exceeds levels considered safe for farming.

Food production is likely to be affected, the researchers suggest.

The results are reported in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) journal.
