In this Nov. 15, 2012 photo, Kazuo Sakai, a member of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), works at his office in Tokyo. Influential Japanese scientists who help set national radiation exposure limits have for years had trips paid for by the country’s nuclear plant operators to attend overseas meetings of the world’s top academic group on radiation safety. Sakai who received utility money for his research into low dose radiation during a 1999-2006 tenure at the Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry, an organization funded by the utilities, said he made it clear his science would not be improperly influenced.
