    Not to be overly picky, but the headline is incorrect. I think we need to maintain our credibility by being accurate. Tomorrow or the next day we may find out these workers have exceeded their maximum limit for radiattion, but as of this article (cited) and all info I have seen, they MAY have exceeded their max dose.

      Not that we want to employ the standard TEPCO (et. al.) Weasel Word Strategy, or have any reason to doubt that these workers received a maximum dose, but that’s a valid point till we know more. Edited.

        Between you and I, I have no idea if they exceeded the 250 mSv yearly limit. Internal to this extent is not good. They would need to recieve around 170 mSv from the internal to exceed the limit, and that is a butt load of internal. Thanks for the accuracy though:)
