After the Fukushima nuclear accident, Canadian health officials assured a nervous public that virtually no radioactive fallout had drifted to Canada.
But last March, a Health Canada monitoring station in Calgary detected an average of 8.18 becquerels per litre of radioactive iodine (an isotope released by the nuclear accident) in rainwater, the data shows.
The level easily exceeded the Canadian guideline of six becquerels of iodine per litre for drinking water, acknowledged Eric Pellerin, chief of Health Canada's radiation-surveillance division.
"It's above the recommended level (for drinking water)," he said in an interview. "At any time you sample it, it should not exceed the guideline."

That's what wrong with you people. You let things interfere with your life. If you're going die quick, short or whatever. How you going to stop it?
Rain is not going to stop. You can't hide. It's going to fall.

The only true escape is to move to the southern hemisphere.
Oh, have you seen someone die of radiation cancer, or any sort of cancer?
It's painful, it's slow and it hurts not just the person with cancer but everyone who has to watch them suffer.
Further to the above, it firstly affects infants and young children. I'm sure they will try live a fantastic life while they're bed ridden dying slowly.edit on 15-1-2012 by LightAssassin because: (no reason given)
