Test Results Back After FDA Tests Fish for Radiation


by Marissa Silver

Anchorage -  The latest radiation results are in on whether or not Alaska seafood has been effected by radiation from the Fukushima Plant.

Recent testing by the FDA on salmon, halibut, sablefish and cod found no radiation.
This testing was especially important for Alaskans, where some people may consume up to 250 pounds of fish a year.
"That is highly relevant to Alaska because we have (the) Alaska native population and some others who really rely on fish and marine mammals for their livelihoods, for their regular diet, so it is kind of important," said Dr. Ali Hamade who is an Environmental Public Health Program Manager.
Water and mammal tissue were also tested and no health concerns were found.

Those that are negligent at TEPCO should be put into prison for crimes against humanity! The radiation is coming in due to TEPCO's non stop dumping of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean each and every day and this is without question the truth considering that so many fish eating sea animals are sick with lesions caused by radiation! Second, remember fish migrate from one coast to the other and ocean currents can and will bring radioactive fish to the west coast of the United States and Canada to end up on your dinner plates! If you are a fish and seafood eater it would be a very good idea to do a radiation detox with the natural mineral called Zeolite that has been proven to safely remove both radiation and heavy metals from the human body! For more information on this detox do a search for the single word Zeolite.
