Cesium-134, the fingerprint of seaborne radiation from the nuclear disaster at Fukushima in Japan, has been detected on the West Coast of the United States for the first time, as well as in Canadian salmon. Seaborne radiation from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster has been detected in seawater samples taken from Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach […]

Continuous Leaking Of Radioactive Strontium, Cesium From Fukushima To the Ocean

Scientists from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) investigated the levels of radioactive strontium and cesium in the coast off Japan in September 2013. Radioactive levels in seawater were 10 to 100 times higher than before the nuclear accident, particularly near the facility, suggesting that water containing strontium and cesium isotopes was still leaking into […]

Bluefin Tuna Still Contaminated With Fukushima Radiation

A Stanford University study measures, and finds, radioactive cesium levels in bluefin tuna for the second year in a row. They showed that a bluefin tuna is capable of picking up radioactive material and transporting it across the ocean. In 2011, radiocesium from Fukushima was detected in Pacific bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis, that had recently […]

Fukushima City Government Sells Bottled Fukushima Tapwater

In order to dispel harmful rumor, Fukushima city government is selling bottled tapwater at conference or events held in the city. (100 yen for 500ml) Fukushima City Waterworks Bureau has embarked on a PR safety. ‘Safe and delicious’ a bottle of tap water in Fukushima. They started selling it in 2008, but renewed the label last year […]

Fukushima Fish Tests 2,500 Times Over Legal Radiation Limit

Two years after the disaster at the Fukushima Daichi nuclear plant in Japan — called the “worst accidental release of radiation to the ocean in history” — a fish with staggering levels of radiation has reportedly been found in the vicinity of the plant. A fish caught as part of an ongoing Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) seafood monitoring […]

Fukushima radiation effecting world food supply safety

Last March radioactive cesium spewed from the wrecked Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant over rural areas containing rice fields. It also was dispersed into the atmosphere and into the sea. The radiation contamination is working its way into the food supply and is being found in meats, milk, fungi and plants. In the fall, in the […]

High Radioactivity Found Far From Japanese Reactor

Very high levels of radioactive cesium, believed to be from Japan’s tsunami-nuclear disaster last March, have been found by independent researchers in the city of Fukushima, nearly 40 miles from the crippled reactors. The 307,000 becquerels of cesium per kilogram found well outside the current evacuation zone is three times the benchmark established by the […]
