    Don’t worry – California Cows are “Contented Cows” – the radiation will not affect their milk.

    Tests! WE NEED MORE TESTS!! 6/20 results?

    • BreadAndButter BreadAndButter

      Yes, saw that also…are they ahead of time??

      • itstomd

        A milk sample with a **Best By date of** 6/20 was added to our Milk results. Cesium-134 was detected again at levels similar to previous measurements, but Cesium-137 levels decreased.

    I suspect it’s a typo for ‘ 6/10’. Besides, powdered milk doesn’t taste THAT bad…does it?? I’m going to stock up on some more today. I’m still amazed at the utter lack of awareness of this mess here on the west coast. My neighbors think I’m a lunatic for worrying. I don’t even mention it anymore. I’ve decided to just quietly go about stocking up on food, water, and such. I truly hope I am overreacting, but I have a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach over this.

    I have been using powdered milk for my kids for 2 months now. Big change from the whole milk they are used too. They are worth it, and I take no chances. I also have stocked up on tuna, water, and canned fruit. I worry about future food becoming contaminated.

    Results from 6/20? Check your atomic clock. Tda is 6/14. UCB is good, but not that good.

    Here’s the link to their page re: testing and explaining why some of the previous results may have been overstated.

      again, as already stated above: “A milk sample with a **Best By date of** 6/20 was added to our Milk results.”

      It makes sense to read here @ Enenews, Marie Curie .. 😉

  • War Is Peace

    Does anyone know why the MDA (minimum detectable amount) changes from one sample to the next? I’ve been wondering about that since they started posting test results. Just curious…

  • War Is Peace

    They lost all credibility, in my mind, when the say:
    “he number in parentheses is the number of liters of milk that one would need to consume to equal the radiation exposure of a single round trip flight from San Francisco to Washington D.C. (0.05 mSv).”
    That it totally absurd, and gives people a false sense of security about drinking radioactive milk. Internal ionizing radiation is not comparable to external, non-ionizing radiation, such as would be received from air travel.

    UCB fakes data?????
    It seems so. No way it is 6/10 after 6/9
    Money finally gets everything

    I don’t know who posted this: “My ‘safe’ foods list”. But it is posted on the Department of Nuclear Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, along with other comments.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

      I don’t use this safe list. There was already too much radiation in the US before Fukushima. I’m vegan and sprout a lot and try to eat 100% raw.

  • Itisthesellbydateidiot

    The dates UCB uses for their milk samples for testing are the SELL BY DATES!

    Wake up people!
