7th January 2014 – No Elevated Levels of Radiation Found in North Pacific Salmon Samples*
Loki Fish Company announced today that laboratory analysis of five salmon species harvested by its fishermen in Puget Sound and Southeast Alaska during 2013 show no indications of elevated radiation levels.
Two of the samples registered at trace levels – Alaskan Keta at 1.4Bq/kg for Cesium 137, and Alaskan Pink at 1.2Bq/kg for Cesium 134. There were no detectable levels of iodine-131 in any samples.
[*Editor: The fact that Cesium 134 was, with its 2-year half-life, detected is very significant and certainly does not validate “no indications of elevated radiation levels.” Cs-134 has could have only come from Fukushima. This is very significant and this food stock should not be consumed by folks not eager to feast on Fukushima-impacted fish.]

19th May 2011 – Texas politicians knew agency hid the amount of radiation in drinking water
However, the TCEQ would consistently subtract off each test’s margin of error from those results, making the actual testing results appear lower than they actually were. In MUD 105’s case, the utility was able to avoid violations for nearly 20 years, thanks to the TCEQ subtractions.
17th May 2011 – Texas drinking water makes pipes and plumbing radioactive
According to local officials, the contamination comes from years of exposure to drinking water that already tests over federal legal limits for radioactive radium.
“It’s a serious concern,” City of Brady Manager James Minor said. “These pipes have so much radioactivity in them, metal recycling places refer to them as they’re ‘hot.’”
The City of Brady has individual wells that have tested three times above that limit. Nearby “North San Saba” has tested more than four times the EPA limit for radium. The public water system for “Millersview” has wells that have tested 11 times the limit for radium.
“What these data show are the amount of radionuclides in our water are so high that they could cause cancer, birth defects or kidney disease,” said Tom “Smitty” Smith of Public Citizen, a government watchdog group.
24th December 2013 – New model shows U.S. was hit by Fukushima cloud that dispersed little over Pacific — Gundersen: Authorities knew about hot particles and didn’t warn public; Could have worn air masks, instead it’s stuck in their lungs;
One of the scientists we work with had air filters, continuous air monitors, set up in Seattle and we could clearly show that the average person in Seattle was ingesting about 10 hot particles a day into their lungs.
The authorities did know about it though. I’m absolutely convinced that authorities did know about it and chose to keep us all in the dark.

19th November 2013 – Fukushima fallout damaged thyroid glands of California babies.
“This presents a severe challenge to Dr Wolfgang Weiss of the UN and WHO, who stated last year that no thyroid cancers could result from the Fukushima disaster as the “doses were too low”. How does he explain the 80-fold increase in this normally rare condition?
Or rather, when will he admit that the entire scientific model that underpins his views is fraudulent? And that nuclear radiation is – roughly speaking – 1,000 times more dangerous to human health than he is letting on?”

A lot more radioactive contamination has been released into the air and Pacific Ocean, from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site, since this study was done in 2011.

You might also be interested to know that all nuclear power plants, that are of the variety of light water reactors, release tritium to the atmosphere, so you can expect radioactive rainfall around nuclear power plants.
19th October 2013 – US Pacific Coast Seaweed Shows Fukushima Cesium Contamination!
These values converted to the more common bq/kg are:
Cesium 134: 8.14 Bq/Kg
Cesium 137: 8.88 Bq/Kg
Cobalt 60: 3.7 Bq/Kg
They also tested nori sheets from a market in Chiba prefecture Japan.
“One of two Japanese nori samples from a Chiba Prefecture market contained 1.1 pCi/g of Cs134 and 1.7 pCi/g of Cs137. (That’s 41 and 63 Bq/kg, respectively.) The other was nondetect for these isotopes.”
Cesium 134: 41 bq/kg
Cesium 137: 63 bq/kg
Cobalt 60: none detected
10th October 2013 – USA Nuclear Power Plant “Rooftop Grabs” reveal picture of widespread fallout over US.
It also proves authorities we’re well aware of the danger here at home but were unwilling to issue warnings or advisories (rainwater, milk, green leafy vegetables) so that the American public could take precautionary measures
From the NRC FOIA documents: an example of an ‘unscheduled radiation release’. Since Fukushima fallout was not a result of activities at US nuclear plants, reporting was done on a voluntary basis.
From the NRC FOIA documents: (part 6) the brutal truth: “…licensees do not have to report on elevated levels if it is not due to their licensed activities.”
