25th March 2014 – Alberta student’s science project finds high radiation levels in grocery-store seafood
The Grade 10 student from Grande Prairie said she was shocked to discover that, in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) stopped testing imported foods for radiation in 2012.
“Some of the kelp that I found was higher than what the International Atomic Energy Agency sets as radioactive contamination, which is 1,450 counts over a 10-minute period,” she said. “Some of my samples came up as 1,700 or 1,800.”
“More than 200 food samples were tested and all were found to be below Health Canada’s actionable levels for radioactivity,” the CFIA states in a February 2014 posting on its website. “As such, enhanced import controls have been lifted and no additional testing is planned.”
Same story book reply you get from governments. Tell you it is not detected at “actionable levels.”
1. These isotopes are biologically chemically toxic, as well as radioactive.
2. Actionable levels were much lower pre-Fukushima.
Canada Busted Covering Up Spikes In Fukushima Radiation
30th January 2014 – Maple Syrup
27th October 2014 – Potato sold in Greater Vancouver
27th October 2013 – Mushroom sold in Greater Vancouver
5th December 2013 – Canada Busted Covering Up Spikes In Fukushima Radiation.
For 22 days, a Health Canada monitoring station in Sidney detected iodine-131 levels in the air that were up to 300 times above the normal background levels. Radioactive iodine levels shot up as high as nearly 1,000 times background levels in the air at Resolute Bay, Nunavut.
It has now been revealed that data were not released from a Calgary Health Canada monitoring station detecting levels of radioactive iodine in rainwater well above the Canadian guideline for drinking water.
Criminal charges should be laid against the people responsible for these coverups. Communities in the path of these radiation clouds could have taken action to protect themselves and their children, if they had been informed how serious the situation was..
2nd October 2013 – Fish tell a different story.
“Two nuclear experts who saw the Straight’s figures said the real cancer toll could be 100 times higher—or 80,000 cancers.”
“The cancer numbers also don’t include other possible health impacts from radiation in the fish, such as heart disease, stillbirths, and genetic damage to subsequent generations.”
“The Canadian Food Inspection Agency briefly tested food imports from Japan.”
“One sample of smoked bonito had 7.7 becquerels of cesium per kilo but it was allowed on the market.”
Comment: These figures don’t take into account the continual releases from Fukushima that could last for decades, or more.
2nd August 2013 – Poster reports elevated CPM, with a Geiger counter, in Atlantic Canadian Dulse seaweed. “With a background reading of 21 CPM, a sample of this dulse on a non-radioactive plate read as high as 260 CPM.”
