A wide majority of Japanese worry the radiation released by the March 11 earthquake could have an impact on their health, a survey released Sunday indicated.
The Yomiuri Shimbun poll said 68 percent of Japanese were concerned they or their families could be harmed by the radioactive material that escaped from the Fukushima No. 1 plant outside Tokyo following the massive quake and tsunami.
Other regions of Japan averaged 50 percent to 60 percent.
Another 80 percent said they worried another major quake could hit the specific areas where they live.
