Fukushima university conducted “stress” research for 2743 people this January 2012. Valid responses were 2103 (77%).
The result revealed that the increase of depression, impatience, and concentration difficulty of elementary school students from their last research of June / July 2011.

Title: More leaks found at crippled Japan nuclear plant
Source: AP, Author: MARI YAMAGUCHI, Date: February 3rd, 2012 at 10:20a ET
Leaks of radioactive water have become more frequent at Japan’s crippled nuclear power plant less than two months after it was declared basically stable.
The problem underlines the continuing challenges facing Tokyo Electric Power Co. as it attempts to keep the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant under control [...]
Workers spotted a leak Friday at a water reprocessing unit which released enough beta rays to cause radiation sickness, TEPCO spokesman Junichi Matsumoto said. He said no one was injured and the leak stopped after bolts were tightened on a tank. [...]
Cold winter weather has also caused water inside pipes to freeze elsewhere at the plant, resulting in leaks in at least 30 locations since late January, Matsumoto said. [...]

...Takashi Ishimaru, professor of ocean science at Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology
Contaminated plankton and waste from fish naturally sink to the seabed and are then eaten by miniscule benthos organisms, which bottom fish feed on.
As a result, radioactive materials are passed up the food chain.
“Radioactive materials circulate at the bottom of the ocean. . . . It won’t be reduced easily”
Researchers have yet to obtain data on how contamination from the Fukushima No. 1 plant has spread along the sea floor, so consumers should keep a watchful eye on bottom fish
“There could be hot spots under the sea”
“If hot spots exist on the ocean floor, contamination levels of fish that inhabit such areas may spike”
Satoshi Katayama, professor of fisheries biology and ecology at Tohoku University
“(Contamination) levels of freshwater fish and seabed fish such as flounder haven’t declined”
“It’s hard to say the contamination peak among such fish has passed”
. ..Gunma Prefecture
Meanwhile, samples of freshwater fish caught in Fukushima and Maebashi, Gunma Prefecture, have revealed high levels of contamination exceeding the government limit. Tests conducted between April 19 and Jan. 10 in Gunma on 34 freshwater fish showed that 11 caught in Lake Onuma exceeded the maximum level.
Tochigi Prefecture
In Tochigi Prefecture, meanwhile, “ayu” (sweet fish) caught in May in the Kinugawa River near the city of Utsunomiya and the Nakagawa River near the town of Motegi contained radioactive cesium above 400 becquerels per kilogram — less than the current provisional limit but four times higher than the new limit the government will introduce in April.

The Barents news report indicates that iodine detections where in the NORTHERN Norway and NORTHERN Sweden. Under typical geomagnetic conditions Protons from Coronal Mass Ejections are directed towards the Earth's Poles, hence these might be expected to produce the first reports of radioactive iodines created by the spallation of Cesium 133 by Solar Protons.
