Fukushima fish – radiation levels 2500 times the legal limit

  A FISH contaminated with radiation levels more than 2500 times the legal limit has been caught near Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, its operator says.

Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said caesium equivalent to 254,000 becquerels per kilogram – or 2540 times more than the government seafood limit – was detected in a “murasoi” fish.

The fish, similar to rockfish, was caught at a port inside the Fukushima plant, a TEPCO spokesman said.

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant was battered by a towering tsunami following a huge earthquake on March 11, 2011, causing reactor meltdowns which spewed radioactive contamination into the atmosphere.

Fishing around Fukushima was halted and the government banned beef, milk, mushrooms and vegetables from being produced in surrounding areas.

  1. What are you worried about? You anti nukers have more danger from eating a banana!

    On the other hand, just one atom of uranium lodged inside a body (internally) has the potential for causing fatal cancer in the body (of human, animal or probably ET). According to Paul Zimmerman, John Gofman, Helen Caldicott, Chris Busby and other sane people.

    Seriously, Paul Zimmerman’s book A Primer in the Art of Deception explains the difference between ingesting radioactive substances that are natural (bananas) vs artificial forms (eg., DU weapons debris). I’m sure the other writers mentioned above do that as well, but his book is beautifully written for the lay person.

  2. Just to give you an idea of what Japanese think of this, I asked a Japanese teacher how many people were worried about radiation in Japan. He said about 30 percent. The same morning a student gave a “presentation” (never mind references or facts) about how China is stealing Japanese tuna from the ocean (those are our tuna!). This kind of ludicrous presentation of “facts” is typical. Certainly not only in Japan, by any means. But people do not understand that just getting information “from the internet” does not qualify it as having been properly verified or sourced, but it is commonly expected that such information will be passed on without anyone concerning themselves with its truth value, let alone whether they listen at all. At any rate, there was no mention of radiation in tuna, those tuna that are now near extinction specifically due to Japanese over fishing for the last few decades. Tuna fishing was introduced artificially by the West to give Japanese more protein after WWII. Previously Japanese chefs hated the smell and taste of tuna, but now it is called part of Japanese culture. People know nothing of their own history and the rulers of course depend on our ignorance.
