Independent testing continues to find elevated levels of radiation in milk, drinking water and certain foods in various U.S. cities and states.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
In a special four-part series, “Fukushima in our Food,” nonprofit WellWise.org blogger Steve Hoffman, a widely recognized expert on organics, sustainability and the natural products industry, outlines the extent of the problem of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear accident, including its little-reported effect on food in the United States and Europe.
Coverage about Fukushima has largely disappeared from American mainstream media, despite recent revelations that the accident was far worse and the amount of radiation released nearly double that which was originally reported.
Among other insights, Hoffman explains that little to no official testing for Fukushima radiation is being done around the U.S., and yet independent testing continues to find elevated levels of radiation in milk, drinking water and certain foods in various U.S. cities and states.
Additionally he discusses how nuclear fallout will continue to rise until Japan gets the leakage problem under control, which foods are collecting radiation, and why ingesting radiation-contaminated foods is different than being exposed to radiation on an airplane or other external sources.
In the series, Hoffman also describes what dairy farmers in affected states are doing to reduce radiation content in milk, what can be done to minimize radiation dangers to ourselves and our families, and he offer dozens of sources for more solid facts about this disaster.
Hoffman’s series begins today, and will appear in full over the next week. Read the first in the Fukushima radiation series here.
