Before anyone starts fear-mongering about radioactive tuna read this:

04/28/2014

CORVALLIS, Ore. Albacore tuna caught off the Oregon shore after the Fukushima Daiichi power station in Japan was destroyed in a 2011 earthquake had slightly elevated levels of radioactivity but the increase has been minute, according to a newly published study.

In fact, you would have to consume more than 700,000 pounds of the fish with the highest radioactive level just to match the amount of radiation the average person is annually exposed to in everyday life through cosmic rays, the air, the ground, X-rays and other sources, the authors say.

Results of the study are being published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.

There has been a TON of information on the internet about radioactive water. some claim there is massive amounts of caesium contaminated water hitting the CA coast, some claim it is a negligible amount.

Who to believe ........
