I heard this..."that the human body gives off more radiation naturally than we'll likely be exposed to from the Japan disaster."...again, it's something I heard.

Well, I've yet to be able to fly, run faster than a speeding bullet, or shoot webs out my arse...

I think I'll go fishin'!! :D

The stuff coming from any spill/disaster, is cumulative. Meaning one time exposure in small amounts, isn't going to harm you. Over time, the constant exposure builds up. There was a story on BBC news that said one year after the incident, the tuna had elevated levels of radioactivity. Still, not too high, but in the years to come, it will be exponential.

As far as the "facts" go, where are they getting them? What is the source? I'm pretty sure that any info that "gets out", is more like "given out" by the authorities.

I'm sure we can all trust that they are giving it to us straight... :rolleyes:

How many things (predictions) have come and gone, or gone ignored we found ourselves wanting/set back, due to lack of preparation?

Bottom line, time will tell.

Really? You can't trust the word of government and those in position of high authority? HUH! That has to be news.

Next you will tell me that there is no tooth fairy.

T There was a story on BBC news that said one year after the incident, the tuna had elevated levels of radioactivity. Still, not too high, but in the years to come, it will be exponential.

The National Academy of Sciences specifically addressed the radioactivity in Bluefin Tuna.

http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2013/05/30/1221834110.full.pdf html

The findings were conclusive: They did find radioactive nucleotides in bluefins -- but the doses derived from naturally occurring sources were 3 to 4 times higher than the doses derived from Fukushima.

BTW: National Academy of Sciences is a private non-profit group charged with providing independent, objective evaluations on matters of science and technology. http://www.nasonline.org/about-nas/mission/ In short, the NAS has no dog in this fight -- they simply seek out the facts and report them as they find them.

BTW: If you really want to worry about Radioactive Pollution, forget Fukushima -- the time-lapse video below shows the core source of man-made nuclear pollution in the environment:

Thanks.

Most vital information shared in that linked story:

“The concentration of radioactive materials which will be washed ashore here has no impact whatsoever on our daily life,” he said. “The levels we are measuring, they will not be harmful. They will not have any measurable health impact on humans or any detrimental effects in marine biology.”

Despite several recent online videos and blog posts claiming that Fukushima radiation is causing widespread contamination of the West Coast and harming fish, scientists say their research so far shows that is not the case.

Researchers from Stony Brook University in New York and Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station tested Pacific Bluefin tuna after the 2011 Fukushima incident. They have published research showing radiation levels were low – less than what people are exposed to by eating a banana or other potassium-rich foods that contain naturally occurring radioactive isotopes — and have been falling ever since.
