Concentration of Radioactive Material in Pacific Ocean Up A 1000 times Since Fukushima

Concentration of Radioactive Material up in Parts of Pacific

The concentration of radioactive material in some waters of the Pacific Ocean has increased one-thousand times since the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant last March.

The U.S.’s Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution said the level of radioactive cesium was ten to one-thousand times higher than usual in samples collected in the Pacific three months after the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

All is well sheeple, go back to sleep and keep eating those fishes... you wouldn't want the fish industry to go bankrupt now would you?

EDIT : apparently even at 1000 times the normal level, it's safe.

But there is more to that, high numbers can be scary if you don't understand them.

Radioactive contamination from the Fukushima power plant disaster has been detected as far as almost 400 miles off Japan in the Pacific Ocean, with water showing readings of up to 1,000 times more than prior levels, scientists reported Tuesday. But those results for the substance cesium-137 are far below the levels that are generally considered harmful, either to marine animals or people who eat seafood, said Ken Buesseler of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts.

You go for the Headlines instead of accurate Information,
this is not good for all of us,
we need FACTS and not Pulp Journalism!

Yeah thanks for that... but remember that they upped the ``safe`` level from several times up to a hundred thousands times.

So is it really safe according to pre-Fukushima levels of safety?

There is no such thing as "safe" exposure. Every exposure carries a risk. The only safe exposure is zero.

This is crazy...

That seems to be the new trend where you tell people radiation isn't harmful.

Like this article here from Louisa, VA that states the ground water is contaminated with radiation.

Dominion Virginia Power is seeking the source of leaking radioactivity at its North Anna nuclear power plant after an elevated level of tritium was detected in groundwater.

Dominion Virginia Power also told the commission that there's no evidence the leak is related to last year's 5.8-magnitude earthquake.

The commission says the radiation isn't a hazard to the public.

It's getting absolutely ridiculous how they're telling the people not to worry about radiation exposure.
