Cesium in California’s wine – from Fukushima nuclear accident

The Register 19th Aug 2018 , Savants reckon radiation released by the 2011 Fukushima nuclear kerfuffle
has made its way into California’s wine. A paper emitted this month by
researchers at the University of Bordeaux Centre d’Études Nucléaires de
Bordeaux-Gradignan (CNRS) in France revealed that levels of cesium-137 in
the atmosphere rose as a result of the reactor accident, judging by Cali
tipple tested before and after Japan’s level-7 nuclear disaster.
It is believed a radioactive cloud released by the Fukushima Daiichi plant made its way across the Pacific and over to California’s Napa Valley vineyards,
where trace amounts of the highly soluble cesium isotope got into the
grapes used to make the region’s famed wines.
