Japanese continue to feel effects of quake

A survey of nearly 1500 people residing about 22.5km from the Daiichi plant meltdown found general mental distress evident two to three months after the earthquake and tsunami crippled the area.

A separate study showed all but one resident had acceptable caesium radiation levels, however it could not determine whether people might have been exposed to greater radiation in the immediate aftermath of the meltdown.
