High concentration of radioactive cesium found in land animals

[...] According to a survey by the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology and Hokkaido University, over 6,700 becquerels per kilogram of cesium 137 [cesium-134 not mentioned] was detected in a frog captured in Nihonmatsu, Fukushima Prefecture, some 40 kilometers west of the crippled nuclear plant.

The finding suggests animals positioned relatively high in the food chain tend to accumulate more radioactive materials, the research team said. [...]

    It might be more useful to describe which living things "DON'T" display detectable levels of Fukushima contaminants cooking & mutating DNA have been found(?)!!….analysis & findings shouldn't be limited to Japan either! The faulty NPP design,construction & intentional siting of the POS,overgrown tea kettle now turned toxic toilet bowl flushing TEPCO's deadly turds and bile from Satan's ulcerated bowels into the Pacific Ocean and it's flatulence cuts toxic farts for the locals to wharfle before the jetstream sends the funky remnants across the sea to a location near you and undoubtedly a whiff or 2 for me!! :| ~**

    Where are HUMANS in the food chain? Right up there I bet. If frogs at 40 KM from Fukushima's exclusion zone are showing cesium at that level–wonder what people are really showing? And they just mention the 'good news' cesium 137, not 134 or any other radioactive product. You can NOT dissect a human the way you do a frog..at least while they are alive. Wonder what tests the government is NOT doing to check the public….Just saying..

      EXACTLY jec!! Where are the actual results of the tests from human autopsies following suspicious,untimely deaths or lab results from people sickened who display obvious symptoms of radiation poisoning??!! What/when is the "breaking point" where even the food menu items the "in-the-know,elite" have been buying up becomes too heavily contaminated for consumption and even the ass-wipes who helped bring the world to where it is start getting pissed at their superiors & begin "talking" & "pointing their own dirty,crooked fingers" at TPTB??!! Seeing how stubbornly the Japanese people living on a doomed,island nation cling to pre-311 lifestyles & dietary habits while remaining selfishly in denial of the implications the actions of the foul nuke power/weapons industry/govt.(s) has on them including their children saddens & angers me because IMO "most" of those living in Japan aka "Ground Zero" will be sickened and/or DIE before adopting 'sane policies holding expensive,inconvenient & annoying "changes" necessary to continue living in a toxic world with a completely contaminated environment that's likely to kill off fully 1/3 of the Earths human population and 99% of the food & water resources needed for ALL species to survive before any "meaningful" 180 deg. policy shift away from nuclear is universally adopted & life on Earth doesn't have that much time available to waste waiting for enough to be destroyed to "wake them up"(?)!!~ :( ~**

    Radiation in the form of fission products or fissionable material is the highest on the food chain now.
    Humans and frogs fall below…when the globalists stop worshipping money like a god…they as well will lose their place at the top of the food chain.

    I've heard newly discovered plasma energy can neutralize radioisotopes…now we need to outlaw uranium mining and NPPs and we'll be all set…

      Plasma energy is an idea that sounds great. But it's been in development over 20 years. If it was so great Bechtel would be jumping all over it for their vitri plant in Hanford.

      Radiation is a tough nut to dispose of when it has flown the coop. Mostly invisible and travels through so many mediums easily. There may not be a solution to controlling nuclear waste. Not every question in life has an answer.

    Wind carries radiation far. Very far.

    Attn Fukushima followers. Must see close up footage of the plant. The language is Japanese, but the footage is the best I've seen up close. Watch the video until the end, or till the last interview but not until you see the new building plans. Thats one bus tour I'm gonna have to pass on. Scary just watching the footage. Feeling sorry for the workers and the innocent children there. Very surreal.

    Seems the UN's cotton candy report on the slightly elevated risks from exposure are much too harsh for the proud Japanese Diet…

    Japan riled by WHO's Fukushima cancer warning

    They got part of it right…

    But Japan's environment ministry said the WHO had overstated the risks and called on people living in the area to respond calmly to the report, which it said did not reflect "reality".

    …….Later the frogs and subsequent wildlife were told by TEPCO officials, the Japanese Government and the media that its all just a "baseless rumor".
