I don’t know much about geopolitics, but I think dumping it is not a good idea. Even if they have treated the water, it still contains tritium and other radioactive elements. These will bioaccumulate into fish and (possibly) seaweeds. Those who eat it will be expose to radioactivity more than normal amount. Although it doesn’t mean they will totally have cancer or health complications, it actually increases the risk. Another problem is that it hurts the economy of the fishermen in the area since the seafood will be deemed dangerous to eat. Overall, I think it’s not a good idea to just dump it into the ocean. It might also affect neighboring countries as well.And though Japan and Cambodia are not so close, the dangers of the dumping are concerning in the long run. When they dump these toxic materials into the ocean, marine life consume them and it accumulated in their bodies.

In turn when we also eat fish from the ocean, there is a chance that these fishes contain these toxic materials. The toxic waste is passed on to us, and we carry it with us for life. As we eat more fishes from the ocean, unaware, we will gain more and more of these toxic wastes which may lead to harmful illnesses.
