Tepco Tuna! Radioactive import from Japan floats to US
Due to the many failures of Tepco as outlined in Greg Palast’s latest book Vulture’s Picnic; Tepco Tuna is now on the menu in the states.
Across the vast Pacific, the mighty bluefin tuna carried radioactive contamination that leaked from Japan’s crippled nuclear plant to the shores of the United States 6,000 miles away — the first time a huge migrating fish has been shown to carry radioactivity such a distance.
“We were frankly kind of startled,” said Nicholas Fisher, one of the researchers reporting the findings online Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Apparently the radioactive levels are still “safe” they say, but radioactive tuna doesn’t sound all that appetizing.
