Government Report: Fukushima Ocean Plume Hit Canada 6 Months Ago – ‘Precedes Model Predictions By Several Years’

Gov’t Report: Fukushima ocean plume hit Canada 6 months ago — “Precedes model predictions by several years” — ‘Human health’ is first reason listed for study (MAP) (ENENews, Dec 20, 2013):

 Radionuclide Transport from Fukushima to Eastern North Pacific, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, 2013 PICES Annual Meeting on October 15, 2013:

June, 2012 Tully Mission: Significantly, 134Cs was detected in two samples […] Sta. P26 showing that Fukushima Cs was present. […]

Levels of 137Cs equal to 0.3 Bq/m3 measured at Sta. P26 in 2012 represent Leading edge of Fukushima plume. […]

Arrival of 137Cs at Sta. P26 in June, 2012 precedes [Behrens et al.] model predictions by several years. […]

134Cs was detectable along the entire Line P in June, 2013. Highest levels of 0.9 Bq/m3 were measured at Sta. P26. […]

Many reasons for study-

  • Human health- internal/external dose assessments
  • Radioecology- marine biota […]

[…] Fact is: radioactivity frightens people, almost always disproportionately to the actual threat: gouvernment must recognise this and provide sound, science based knowledge (and wisdom?) on human and environmental risks.

Here’s some of that ‘wisdom’ from Dr. Jay Cullen, who was involved with the 2013 cruise: “[T]he estimated dose of radioactivity from consuming tuna carrying Fukushima-derived isotopes for a year is similar to or less than our annual doses from air travel, terrestrially produced foods, medical treatment (e.g. X-rays) and other background sources.”

Perhaps he should look into internal emitters. Here’s what a physician originally from Kyoto, Japan says: “Internal radiation exposure is an entirely different matter. This cannot and should not be compared to flights and X-rays. […] Internal radiation contamination means radioactive particles are in the body and remain in the body, emitting radiation at a close proximity to cells and DNA. […] So the internal radiation exposure can lead to a wide variety of symptoms, but mainly your immune system is over-worked by trying to deal with the insult. […] human bodies know what to do with the naturally occurring radiation.  Our bodies do not absorb them unnecessarily. […] Artificial radiation as a result of nuclear fission is a different matter.”
