While many radioactive cattle have been discovered large distances from Fukushima, what is more important is where their feed is coming from.
"It's not only about the radioactive cattle in Fukushima Prefecture; its also about the radioactive straw the cattle eat that was grown elsewhere".
Straw found 45 miles from Fukushima is highly contaminated with radioactive cesium, which is an indication that radiation has contaminated large portions of Northern Japan.
More than half a million disintegrations per second in a kilogram of straw are comparable to Chernobyl levels.
This proves that the American Nuclear Regulatory Commission was correct when it told Americans to evacuate beyond 50 miles and that the Japanese should have done the same.
An Ex-Secretariat of Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission blames this contamination on "Black Rain".
Rather than minimize the information the Japanese people receive, Gundersen suggests minimizing their radiation exposure.
