Evaporated water from japans reactor is radioactive right? How does this waste pollute the surrounding ecosystem?

Report as

The steam carries a very low level of radioactive material which is considered non-harmful to humans. Significant amount of radioactive waste that enters the ecosystem may cause premature death or increased rate of disease among organisms that come into contact with the waste.
