This detailed and multi-sourced information and documentation is one of the most comprehensive sources for food and drink radiation testing results conducted and compiled since the triple meltdowns began at Fukushima Daiichi in Japan March 11, 2011. Radiation Food Lab will be updated with new test results continuously through the comments section below.
Why test food for radioactive contamination?
Because governments have deceived the public about food safety radiation levels worldwide.
They first release an article like the one below. I am using the European Union as an example here:
“EU boosts food import controls after Japanese nuclear disaster. The European Union is to step up controls on food imports from Japan in the wake of the nuclear accident at Fukushima – but stressed there was no evidence that consumers in the region were at risk from radiation-contaminated food.
“The EU ruling insists that all products from these prefectures are tested before leaving Japan and said they will be subject to random testing in the bloc. Japanese authorities will have to provide a declaration confirming products do not contain radioactive elements – called radionuclides – that exceed EU maximum levels. The Commission highlighted radionuclides iodine-131, caesium-134 and caesium-137.”
This makes you feel warm and cosy inside, because you think your government is looking after you and your family. This article “EU boosts food import controls after Japanese nuclear disaster” is a clever deception because they then proceed to quietly raise the EU maximum safety levels by 20x for caesium-134 and caesium-137. Governments worldwide have used this same tactic.
They then tell the public everything is testing below safety levels, nothing to worry about!
Here is another example, Japan this time.
If you do purchase good food testing radiation contamination equipment, look at the old pre-Fukushima radioactive food contamination safety levels, as a possible guide. If you can purchase a non-contaminated food item do so, as any level of radioactive food contamination poses a risk.
So what does this mean?
Radiation contamination bio-accumulates over time, particularly in meat, dairy and seafood grown and harvested in radiation contaminated areas. Ingested radiation from contaminated food radiates body cells with high doses of radiation for long periods of time.
You can’t rely on governments, so it is important for your family’s health and safety that you take the time and effort to research this subject. In summary, for your family’s safety, only purchase food and goods that are not from contaminated areas. Also, research dietary systems that help remove or protect your body from radioactive contamination.
An Oncologist in Japan has been doing ongoing research on the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster site workers, and found he is getting very good results with Liposomal Vitamin C. It appears to be healing a lot of radiation damage to their bodies. Liposomal Vitamin C is a combination of vitamin C and lecithin. This combination seems to improve the up take of vitamin C by 80%! It maybe a good idea for you and your family to research taking this to fortify against the effects of radiation. He has been trying to encourage the Japanese government to educate their people about this treatment.
Making your own Liposomal Vitamin C
The general suggestion here in Australia at the present time is to eat locally grown food. No detections have been made in any locally produced food that has been tested so far. Be careful of food products labelled “Made from Australian and imported ingredients”.
Even low-level radioactivity is damaging, http://www.sc.edu/news/newsarticle.php?nid=5214#.UKlCJYbAHov
According to the Petkau Effect long term low level radiation can potentially be more dangerous than a short high dose.
Latest International reports of radioactive isotope contamination of food items
This is by no means a complete list. If you know of a reported detection that is not on this list please let us know by posting a comment.
NOTE: A lot of food and environmental detection reports tend to concentrate on Cesium detection. This is because it is relatively easy to test for, and detect. If Cesium is present in a test result, there is a possibility that other types of radioactive isotopes are also present but not reported. Fallout is a dirty mixture of isotopes. It is not just Cesium. Some of the other isotope contaminants, particularly the dangerous Alpha emitters, need more specialized and expensive equipment to detect their presence.
Ingested radiation from contaminated food or water radiates body cells with high doses of radiation for long periods of time. This means any ingestion of radioactive isotopes increases risk to ones well-being. Children and pregnant women are far more sensitive to the effects of radiation.
