"Truly Frightening" Levels of Radiation Expected in Tuna for Years

 

Recently published scientific data from Stanford University has revealed that all tested tuna contained highly elevated levels of radiation. Every bluefin tuna tested from August 2011 on the California coast was found to be highly contaminated.

This published data is "truly frightening" according to Three Mile Island Nuclear Expert Arnold Gunderson, who declared that the levels of cesium found in bluefin tuna were "surprisingly high" considering their limited exposure to Fukushima Daiichi.

"It wasn´t just a scientific anomaly...every one of these tuna had high levels of Cesium 134 [and] 137 in it." Gunderson elaborated that "the cesium is continually being released" from Japan and is expected to get worse "for the next several years".

"The levels of radioactive cesium were 10 times higher than the amount measured in tuna off the California coast in previous years. Even so, that´s still far below safe-to-eat limits set by the U.S. and Japanese governments."

  ^^ A perfect example of the propaganda surrounding  
 
this issue. Thank you for bringing it up Lurker.

The Japanese and US governments actually raised the level of what is considered "safe" after the Fukushima disaster. As a matter of fact, what used to be considered "nuclear waste" before the accident is now considered "safe" to eat.

The Atlantic ran an article about this:

Before Fukushima: 100 Bq/kg of cesium is nuclear waste — After: 100 Bq/kg of cesium is safe to eat
http://enenews.com/...

Of course they rarely trumpet facts like these in the mainstream media. They´d rather fool you with half truths and propaganda.

This is also not to mention the bio-accumulation that happens with radiation. People don´t usually just eat this newly "safe" radioactive waste once, they tend to eat multiple times a day. When one continues to ingest radiation, it accumulates within the body. This makes the internal exposure progressively worse and more dangerous. Of course you´d be hard pressed to hear about this fact on the propaganda networks too.

  Well..  
 
This will make my wife happy as she hates the smell of tuna whenever I make tuna sandwhiches..
Sucks for me as tuna is the only sea food I can eat.. Everything else stinks too much for me!
