TOKYO (Dow Jones)--Japan health ministry asked the public not to eat leaf vegetables produced in the Fukushima prefecture, where troubled nuclear power plants are located, as radioactive substances beyond the government limits were detected in those kinds of vegetables.Elevated levels of radioactive substances such as Iodine-131, Cesium-134, and Ceisum-137 were detected in broccoli and spinach in Fukushima and raw milk and parsley in Ibaraki, the prefecture just south of Fukushima, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare said early Wednesday.
