Radiation from the Fukushima power plant has been continually leaking since the meltdown as such a catastrophic level, scientists are claiming days of eating fish from the Pacific ocean could be over. Scientists have claimed that TEPCO, the company who is in charge of monitoring the plant, has admitted radiation has been leaking into the Pacific Ocean none stop for the past six years.There are also claims that an estimated 300 to 450 tons of contaminated water being leaked from the Fukushima plant every day.Last month Neon Nettle reported that Tepco confirmed its plans to releases radioactive material from the Fukushima plant into the ocean, stating the decision has already been made”.
According to scientist Ken Buesseler, who has examined the contaminated fish, the level of radiation may not be enough to poison humans.
However, his claims were immediately contradicted by the scientists who said there was “no such thing” as safe levels of radiation in food products.
The contaminated water is believed to contain traces of radioactive iodine, cesium, and strontium-89 and 90 The contaminated water is believed to contain traces of radioactive iodine, cesium, and strontium-89 and 90.But despite efforts from the Japanese government to control the problem, the fish have still been affected by the sheer mass of the radiation spewing into the ocean. Many fish in the region have now tested positive for huge amounts of radiation resulting in the closure of fishing industries.New studies reveal that alarming levels of radiation in fish caught off the northwest coast of the United States and in Canada, which has been traced by to the power plant.
