Well for all of you worried about the radiation hazard from this on aircraft here's the truth.
A mate of mine who worked on one of the planes went to her manager and asked what the lowdown was about getting checked. She was told to ring NHS direct, in her own time, if she was worried.
She did so and was asked if she felt unwell. When she replied no she was asked why she was ringing NHS direct? By the time you feel ill it's too !!!!! late with that stuff.
So it looks like if you're a member of the spy community or eat at a Sushi bar then you get checked. If you work on the planes then tough!
:sad: :=

The truth is that there is no hazard. End of.

Employer advised person to take an appropriate course of action - there are not loads of heavy metal poisoning experts around for hire to examine everyone, and it is quite clear that NHS Direct have been briefed.

Considering that thousands of people ate at Itsu, a number less than 100 have been checked out, I think it a little trite to think that one is receiving different treatment.

Just what do you expect treatment-wise ?

There is no treatment, once it's in the body there is nothing that can be done regardless of whether you feel ill or not.

As has been previously stated - there is no hazard.
