» Internal exposure, less than 50 millisieverts for infants

Thyroid gland doses of internal radiation in year-old infants living within 30 kilometers of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant are well within safety limits, according to a United Nations committee.

At a Feb. 26th 2013, international conference in Fukushima, a representative of the U.N. Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation said the infants averaged less than 50 millisieverts, about half the estimate presented by the World Health Organization in May.
