What we’re finding is that the aquatic life, especially the fish at the top of food chain like bluefin tuna, are definitely taking this radioactive material up and carrying over very long distances across the ocean. At levels that are, in my opinion, unexpectedly high.

It really has to do with whether or not, this to me is a signal, even though there are low levels of radioactivity from Japan, could be a signal that the world’s food chain is being compromised.
