Hey just thought I’d pass on very important information concerning a new health threat resulting from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the levels of radiation going into the Pacific Ocean are still extremely high after after five months. And one thing the video below doesn’t discuss is the bio accumulation occurring as radiation moves up the food chain it multiplies in it’s intensity, for example a plankton will ingest radioactive algae making it radioactive. Then a shrimp comes along and eats the radioactive plankton, but the radiation has become hotter in the tissues of the plankton thereby contaminating the shrimp and rendering them even more contaminated or hotter than the planktan was. So by the time the tuna gets to the radiation after it moves up the food chain, it’s pretty hot.
Below the video, he says to buy your tuna now, whereas my suggestion is just say no to tuna altogether. Here’s a must-see website named GotMercury.org it has a mercury calculator that helps you determine how much mercury you’re ingesting every week from fish. Most species of Tuna are already HIGHLY TOXIC in mercury contamination before factoring the radiation from Fukushima, unfortunately other no toxins like PCBs, arsenic, benzene’s haven’t been researched. For me, learning how much mercury was in fish was enough to force me to virtually eliminate seafood from my diet five or six years ago. Maybe four or five times a year I’ll eat salmon, that’s it – and aside from a nice red piece of filet mignon, seafood was my favorite meat dish.
All it takes is one too many” molecules”, let me repeat…one too many MOLECULES, itty-bitty molecules to tip the scales at the molecular level for the shakes to begin. You know, when the hands start trembling for no reason? Maybe one of the factors contributing to so much Parkinson’s Disease is too much mercury in our diets.
In addition to going to GotMercury.org, after watching this alarming video you should have enough information to make an educated decision for your self. It’s very important that we protect the children from radiation, they are the keys to healthy future generations but it’s important they’re protected from the sterilizing and genetically damaging effects from radiation. As well as brain and nerve damage from mercury…more below from the original poster. Much love, Annette

Buy your Canned Tuna, Now?
Long term radiation effects, in Tuna?
With many of the long term effects from the Japanese Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster still ahead of us, a serious consideration should be made regarding the food chain and the possible radioactive contamination thereof. In this example, let’s look at Tuna fish. Is it safer to buy canned tuna now, before possible contamination into its food chain?
They spawn in the Western Pacific between Okinawa and the Philippines and the Sea of Japan and they migrate over 6,000 nautical miles to the Eastern Pacific, eventually returning back to their birth waters to spawn again.
What do Tuna eat?
Tuna mostly eat small fish ranging from 1.5 inches up to 6 inches. Tuna will also eat squid, and very occasionally will consume crustaceans.
The small fish that tuna will eat include skipjack herring, flying fish, lancetfish, puffer fish, triggerfish and rabbitfish.
If tuna eat smaller fish like Herring, then what do the Herring eat?
Herring (a.k.a. trash fish) eat mostly plankton, as well as algae and some kelp.
If tuna eat squid, then what do squid eat?
Squids are carnivorous. The smaller species of squid mostly eat shrimp, and other small fish.
How could radiation enter the fish food-chain?
So now that we have an idea of what type of tuna is caught off Japan, and what it is that the tuna eat, lets hypothesize how radioactive particles could be ingested into this food chain.
We know that they have been dumping tremendous amounts of radioactive water into the Pacific ocean. This is the water that they have been spraying onto the reactors, fuel rods, and fuel pools while trying to keep them from entirely melting down. The problem is, there has been partial meltdown and the radiation is traveling with the water runoff, which is currently being dumped into the ocean (some water is being diverted into storage tanks).
Of much higher concern is Cesium-137, which has a half-life of 30 years (considered gone after 300 years). Of even higher concern is Plutonium-239 which has an unimaginable half-life of 24,000 years (considered gone after 240,000 years).
The radiation in the seawater is surely getting diluted, however fish are swimming in the water, and the diluted particles of Cesium and Plutonium will remain somewhere in the oceans for 300 to 240,000 years. Do you know how fish stay alive? They constantly are passing water through their mouths into their gills — never ending.
Not only do little fish stay alive this way, but also big fish. So, not only will big fish get their own radiation through water injection through their gills, etc… but the big fish also eat the small fish. Effectively then, they are getting More radiation.
The big fish are then caught for processing, distribution and consumption by humans.
Where does the ‘canned’ tuna come from?
About 68 percent are caught from the Pacific Ocean, 22 percent from the Indian Ocean, and the remaining 10 percent from the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea
When you open a can of tuna, you don’t know where the actual tuna was caught.
Odds are of course, that the tuna in that particular can may not have been caught off the shore of Japan — it could have been caught in any other number of places in the Pacific. Lots of these tuna migrate their way to the west coast U.S., but it takes awhile — years in some cases.
No doubt the food supply chain will be examined further as time goes on, particularly if the situation continues to worsen at the Fukushima nuclear plant (It’s already a level-7, the highest on the nuke disaster scale). True results may not be measured for many years to come while looking back at cancer rates.
No amount of radiation ingestion is ‘OK’ though. A single Cesium-137 particle stuck in your body could start the chain reaction that leads to cancer.
