Understood. You have no point. Thanks for the clarification.

To everyone else, look over the available information. It's very clear. What is presented in the OP, and the above clearly indicates you would need to ingest kilograms of fish for the sample tested in order to breach the level of cesium known to cause health issues.

Damn. I guess I have to lay off bananas.

I wasn't aware that bananas had cesium 137 in them. Care to post evidence?

You do realize there are different types, forms, half lifes, etc. that conclude weather a radioactive material is hazardous correct?

Which makes your post as pointless as they come.

Well, it would depend upon where those bananas come from, but you said:

As I said. Add more radiation to your diet. I really could not care any less what happens to you.
Since, apparently, more radiation is bad, less is good, so I'll drop bananas (and Brazil nuts).

Yes, quite aware. Are you aware that a longer half life indicates a lower level of radioactivity?

The main problem with cesium-137, which is present in the form of salts, is its high water solubility. Cesium-137 ions are readily distributed in the body, and especially in the muscle tissues. The biological half-life is 110 days. This means that half of the cesium-137 has been excreted again after 110 days.

Bananas and brasil nuts do NOT have cesium 137. So your whole post and tangent about them is moot.

Cesium 137 has a half life of 30 years.........

No. It isn't. The point is that we are exposed to, and consume, radioactivity on an ongoing basis.

Your own source re:cesium 137, says it does not bioaccumulate.

The biological half-life is 110 days. This means that half of the cesium-137 has been excreted again after 110 days.

I mean so it's okay for you to flip the script over and over again, but when anyone else tries to follow your logic for the post they're now off topic for not going with your tangents? I wonder if you're even self-aware enough to realize what you're doing here.

Bioaccumulation, oh no that's not the point. More sources, oh wait no only when I say... just weird, man. Are you not used to people calling you out or something?

So you are ok with a highly dangerous radioactive isotope in your system for 110 days (4 months)?

Ok.

Stop trying to put bananas and brazil nuts in the same category. You are only looking foolish.

That would depend upon how much of it is there. A few picograms? No big deal, because I get that much radiation from just walking around. If I go to Denver, it increases.

As I stated earlier in this thread, I received a hell of a lot more rads over a period of months than any amount of cesium I could have eaten could provide.

A 30 year half life is very short when it comes to radioactivity.

Which is why I said it countering your comment of "you realize a long half life means less radiation". Remember that statement?

Yes. My radiation therapy did not affect my short term memory.

The difference is people continue to eat the fish.

If it takes 110 days for it to pass out of the system then you should only eat it every 4 months.

If not, it will accumulate.

But whatever. I live on the east coast anyway and could care less about you west coasters.

Your therapy lasted what 30 minutes at a time?

Not exactly continuous for 110 days now was it?

Your rads were not administered continuously for 110 days.

Apples vs. oranges

Only if the amount you are consuming exceeds the amount you excrete.

What makes you think I live on the west coast?

Hehe, well ok. Only daily at about 250 per. Tell me, how much 137Cs would I have to eat to match that?

That would be 4 months.
