If the CPM at the beach near SF is over 100 for most the time, that's 144,000 CPM or more in 24 hours. 1,000 CPM is about 1 millirem. The recommended life time exposure to millirems is about 1,000 per year age (so, for someone who is 30 years old, 30,000 millirems, and 40 years old, 40,000 millirems, etc). So,144,000 CPM is about 144 millirems. 144 millirems a day adds up to 52,560 millrems in a year which as much as a 52 year old person should have been exposed to in their lifetime.
This looks like a pretty dangerous situation for any living thing exposed to these levels of radiation. This doesn't mean the levels inland are the same or that everyone is exposed to these level at all times, but will they eventually get that high inland and be exposed?

I know there are some natural foods like cilantro that can help detox the body of heavy metal toxicitiy (radioactive particles are heavy metals themselves) and some type of pine tree extracts. Also natural zeolites can help trap and bind to radioactive particles and keep them trapped. It can be consumed by humans and animals to help the body detox any radiation and heavy metal contamination and eliminate it from the body. I know TEPCO has used this to clean up some of the mess near the local oceans in and around Fukushima to neutralize some of the radiation leakage.

You guys need to remember this is no longer just CS-137. Its a lot of things. You have to take nuclear transmutation into account. Other isotopes were also released and you have to do the same for those. We have a large mix of different isotopes now its not CS-137 you are calculating for.
