NOT ACCEPTABLE: "Japan to seek to reduce children's radiation dose by 60% in 2 yrs"

[EXCERPTED] TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Japan will seek to halve the amount of radiation in residential areas around the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and cut children's daily radiation dose by 60 percent over the next two years, a document on radiation decontamination policy showed Wednesday.
The policy is to be endorsed Friday by a government task force dealing with the nuclear crisis triggered by the devastating March 11 earthquake and ensuing tsunami.

MAJIA HERE: THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN NEED TO BE EVACUATED NOW AND RELOCATED IN SAFE, HOSPITABLE AREAS.

CHILDREN EXPOSED TO ELEVATED RADIATION  LEVELS FOR 2 YEARS MAY DEVELOP CANCER OR OTHER DISEASES.

The article is evasive but seems to imply that children will remain in areas with levels of exposure up to 20 millisieverts a year. This is simply unacceptable.
