Wildlife specialists are finally expressing worry over eating seafood from the Pacific Ocean, particularly migrating salmon.
Japanese farmers say their produce is checked for cesium and then sold to the public although they themselves do not believe the food is safe. They do not eat it, nor do they let their loved ones eat produce grown in the contaminated soil of Fukushima. And yet the powers that be have decided that it is safe for consumption. (Where would they throw it, anyway?)
Just weeks after the Fukushima nuclear accident occurred in March 2011, Massachusetts officials were blamed for reporting the spike in radioactivity in the air. By now officials have confirmed huge spikes in radiation levels on the coast of northern California and even places far away from the Pacific, like Missouri.
The biggest fallout from the event, aside from the mental stress of knowing the situation is just getting worse, has been thyroid cancer. Children and young people are most at risk and should be careful to get iodine tablets to slow or prevent the possibility of it.
The other biggest problem is that people don’t believe the “experts” the way they used to. It feels like the public is being left in the dark without adequate updates and information on the ever-increasing levels of radiation in our environment. Out of sight, out of mind.
