  1. “trace amounts.” Since they won’t use the right testing equipment……we cannot believe a word they say. I have read in more than one place that the poisons hitting Fukushima are hitting the west coast in equal doses due to the direct location of western Northern America. Sea animals are dying like flies, and they claim “trace amounts”.
    Who are they kidding?
