Hello Melissa:

As I read the Nat Geo piece and other work, the concern for harmful levels of radiation to humans is pretty much confined to Japan and mostly near the Fukushima area.  The amount of contaminated water and the radiation levels in them are really less than a drop in the proverbial Pacific bucket.  It is a terrible accident and situation for Japan, but I would caution you against becoming hysterical over radiation effects to the US and rest of the World based on a visceral fear of the word 'radioactive'.
