More than half a decade after the catastrophic meltdown of the Japanese Fukushima nuclear power plant, the shockwaves are still being felt all over the world. It has been reported that a third of the world’s oceans have experienced raised radioactivity level after the shocking nuclear accident with the west coast of the United States being particularly affected. Now a team from the University of Victoria have starkly demonstrated the profound effect the meltdown is having on sea life from the region.
The researchers collected samples of salmon fish from the shores of Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach in January and February last year in order to assess their radioactivity rates. They confirmed that these fish were revealing traces of radioactive Cesium 123. Shortly after this shocking investigation, the lead investigator Jay Cullen also tested several sockeye salmon specimens from Okanagan Lake in British Columbia, Canada. These fish also tested positive to radioactive traces.
The FDA has reasonably lax rules about the packaging and sale of fish for human consumption in the United States. Therefore, it is fairly likely that these radioactive fish could be considered safe for sale on the American market. Furthermore, radioactive iodine 131 has also been found in the municipal drinking water supplies in locations in the United States as far afield as Pennsylvania and Massachusetts which is also believed to be connected to the Fukushima meltdown.
Despite the fact that a huge number of studies have reported on the increase in radioactive contamination throughout the United States and Canada following the meltdown at Fukushima, the media and the authorities have been strenuous in their denials that it poses a threat to public health. However, this claim has been disputed by experts who warn that there is no safe level of radioactive contamination for living organisms. Even very small levels of radioactive exposure can cause a significant impact on the health of individuals leaving them vulnerable to the development of serious illnesses such as cancer.
