Since children are smaller thanadults, a dose of radiation could do more harm. Accordingto the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if anadult and a child ingest the same amount of radioactiveiodine, the thyroid dose will be 16 times higher to anewborn than to an adult; for a child under 1 year old,eight times the adult dose; for a 5-year-old, four times theadult dose. People in Japan have been advised to becareful and drink only bottled water in the areas near thenuclear plants.
  13. 13. As authorities tried to maintain calm in Tokyo,residents were racing to buy as much bottled water asthey could, clearing the shelves of the city’s stores. Mr.Edano said Thursday that officials were considering aplan to import (bring in) water from overseas, to increasethe number of bottles they planned to begin give outacross the city. At a convenience store in central Tokyo,the shelves were about half-stocked with water. A clerksaid he had restocked them just an hour before. “Peoplecame in and cleared us out in the first hour after theannouncement,” he said, saying he did not want to beidentified because he did not want to anger his boss.“They were taking 20 to 30 bottles at a time.” Outside thestore a man struggling to load more than 30 half-literbottles on his bicycle said he had bought the water forhis three small children.

Only 3,000 headper year make the Kobe grade and get the Kobe stamp.If a piece of meat has it, the public knows they aregetting very high quality beef. A five-ounce sirloin at theEkki Bar and Grill in Tokyo currently goes for 12,000 yen($150). Japan’s other brands of premium beef includeSendai, Ohmi, Matsuzaka and Yonezawa. “We can’t feedour cows anymore because of the lack of feed andwater,” said The manager of the JA Cooperative in hard-hit Japanese city that raises Sendai beef. “We have only20 percent of the feed we need. I can’t imagine whateffect the contaminated food and water is going to haveon our herd. Since there is not very much that is notcontaminated, many of our herd will die of starvation.”
