Perhaps the two most interesting news articles in the world this week were the discovery of plutonium in fish caught 60km off the coast of Japan (Enenews 27/06/2012) and the reversal of illness in Danish pigs after they were no longer fed genetically modified food (Farmwars.info 28/06/2012).
Dr Caldicott says there is no safe dose of plutonium. Now that is has been found in little fish, it will quickly make its way up the food chain into bigger fish, which swim long distances. Half of the plutonium 239 will be gone from the Pacific fish in 24,000 years’ time.
All the Bluefin Tuna in the pacific are now contaminated with Japanese nuclear radiation cesium137 (news.yahoo.com May 30 2012), yet people continue to buy and eat tuna, unaware of the danger.
