Bad news for everyone as the radioactive salmon is swimming freely everywhere.
The first results are coming from Canada. All researchers are starting to warn us about over a third of the world’s oceans under threat of contamination.
I mean, this threat is now bigger as a team of researchers from the University of Victoria took a job and started investigating radioactive samples of salmon.
The American West Coast is also into the red zone of contamination. The traces of seaborne Cesium 134 (the indicator of Fukushima nuclear pollution) are still detectable in the ocean waters.
So, there is a big chance we are going to consume Radioactive Salmon going further in our lives.
I’ve been wondering when we are going to hear news about the Fukushima rector’s explosion.
What’s scares me the most is that I’m a big seafood person and this is not the first case of contamination.
There have been some reports warning us about this, but those stories were blending into the mainstream traction.
WHOI is a crowd-funded science seawater sampling project, which has been monitoring the radioactive plume making its way across the Pacific to America’s west coast, from the demolished Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in eastern Japan.
According to the test samples from the Oregon beaches, the cesium 134 levels is around 0.3 becquerels per cubic meter. This level of radiation is “safe” and not a risk to humans or the environment. That’s according to many researchers in the US and Canada.
Of course, it’s not. Can you believe this? – They are actually saying that radiation can be safe.
But, there is this “but,” there is no such thing as a safe amount of radiation for many living organisms. I think we know better about that.
Exposure to radiation is exactly what it says it is. Even if the amount of radiation is small. It still increases our risk for cancer and other dangerous diseases.
This got me thinking about all the times I’ve been eating salmon for the past couple of months. I think I’m going to substitute it with different kinds of fish.
At least until I get a confirmation that salmon is now good for consuming.
