Japan's food contamination problem 'serious', says WHO
The World Health Organisation says the food contamination in Japan is 'more serious' than first expected. This comes after concerns that the radioactive particles have contaminated food and water supplies.
Japan has already stopped the sale of raw milk and spinach from areas near the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
The contamination of food and drink are putting even more pressure on a nation which has been struggling to control the troubled nuclear plant damaged by the earthquake and tsunami on 11 March.
Asia Business Report's Mariko Oi in Tokyo, explains how the radioactive contamination issue will affect Japan's farming sector.
