Japan's nuclear crisis may mean greater demand for imported food and less competition from Japanese products on world markets. But it also mean that Japanese farmers and others who make and sell food have to worry about their future. Y.M sells fish at one of Japan's busiest fish markets. But now there are fewer fish to sell.
Fish supplies from the radiation contaminated regions have been totally halted.



The radiation is from the Fukushima nuclear power station, that was damaged by the March eleventh earthquake and tsunami. The extent of the problems are still not clear. Last Friday, China joined number of other counties that have banned imports of food from the affected areas. Chinese media said the banned items include milk products, fruit, vegetables and sea food.  Singapore also has a ban in place. Restaurant manager C.H says some people are worried about eating Japanese food.


Consumer confidence is yes, somewhat shaken. I will say amongst some of the Singapore populace, but it can be helped, I think.  


The United States has also banned foods from radiation affected areas, and so has the Japanese government itself. Radioactive particles traveling the wind and get absorbed into soil with the help of rain and snow. Then plant roots take up the material and the plants become contaminated. Animals eat the plants and their products become contaminated. Some kinds of radiation stay in the environment longer than others.
Medical physicist G.B is a radiation expert at the university of California Davis. Professor B says removing the top soil might make the land safe for use but it depends on the depth of radiative material. And for now, he says it is too early to take any measures. Experts say the ocean will help dilute radiation in sea water, but the tsunami also destroy sea food. Sank fishing boats and leveled procession plants.  C.E studies the politics of energy at the brooking institution in Washington D.C.  Mr. A  says the danger to adults from radiation contaminated food is overstated. Still, the affected areas of northeastern Japan are deeply dependent on agriculture and fish, he says, so their economy could suffer the most.
