I've not seen any effect on the radiation debate from Fukushima. The people saying that small amounts of radiation are harmless or even beneficial were saying that long before Fukushima. The people who were saying any radiation is bad are still saying it.

What I'm getting from that is that the Japanese are saying "Our Japanese radiation is different, and this small amount won't harm you".

Do you have an example of this that's in any way different what nuclear power advocates have been saying for decades?
