@joserock, that's for one-year-old girls who stayed on the extended evacuation zones for 4 months, eating exclusively fuskuhima food the whole time including those products that were banned at the time. I agree with the WHO that we have to "err in the side of caution," but I don't see the point of calculating risks for population groups that don't exist.
