A couple disturbing reports via ENENews showing that the “toxic” radioactive water that is being poured into the Pacific ocean from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is likely to continue into the 2020s with “High potential for marine life and human health effects through ingestion over generations,” and that the contaminants are concentrated thousands of times in the food chain with human beings being at the end of that food chain “who may suffer genetic damage, cancer, other health problems and even death.”
Professor Fumikazu Yoshida of Hokkaido University’s Graduate School of Economics, Economic Journal of Hokkaido University, March 2013: Now, the Nuclear Safety Commission has initially tolerated the dumping of radioactive contaminated water in the sea since they claim that it will be diluted. But even diluted in seawater contaminants will be concentrated thousands of times throughout the food chain. Such elementary knowledge concerning the environmental consequences of pollution […] is now apparently being forgotten. […]
For those still in denial, this should be an eye opener.
