It's not considered a health threat at all.

Also in this place, automated radiation monitors stand guard outside parks and schools. The place we&#39;re talking about is Minamisoma, Japan... just down the road from the nuclear reactors that melted down last year. But a 23-year-old art instructor from Pendleton says volunteering in this shaken city is like living a dream. She&#39;s helping out in her hometown&#39;s sister city. Correspondent Tom Banse visited Japan&#39;s Fukushima Prefecture and has this report.
