Title: Nuclear Watch: Pacific Tuna Survey
Source: NHK Newsline
Date: Oct. 9, 2013

At 0:45 in

NHK: The samples come from 20 bluefin tuna caught off California between May and August of last year. Researchers at Stanford University studied the same fish and said they detected low levels of radioactive cesium. They concluded the source of the contamination was the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. […] Now, [Kinki University Professor Hideo] Yamazaki and his team will analyze the tissue to measure the levels of cesium. […] He says people would face no risk even if they ate the samples. He’s studying fish that migrate across the ocean to understand how radioactive particles spread in the environment.

Professor Hideo Yamazaki, Kinki University: The tuna could have been contaminated off the coast of Japan. They could have also absorbed radioactive substance that traveled across the Pacific. I can think of numerous processes of contamination. We need to do a detailed study to find out exactly what is happening. [...]

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Why do we never get an answer

    When we're knocking at TEPCO’s door?

    With a thousand million questions

    About radiation and deaths score.

    It's where we stop and look around us

    There is nothing that we need.
    
In a world of persecution
    
That is burning in it's greed.

    Why do we never get an answer

    When we're knocking at the NRC's door?

    Because the truth is hard to swallow

    That's what the wall of lie's is for.

    It's not the way enewes say's it

    When they blog those thoughts to me.
    
It's more the way that they logically fact it

    When you post what will be.

    And when you stop and think about it
    
You won't believe it's true.

    That all the electricity you've been receiving

    Has all been meant a slow death for you.

    I'm looking for someone to stop radioactive life.
    
I'm looking for a miracle for everyone's life.
    
And if you could see what it's done to me

    To lose the the life I knew

    Truth could have safely lead me through.

      Between the silence of the mountains

      And the crashing of the Cesium sea

      There lies a land I once lived in

      And she's waisting before me.

      But in the Gamma rye of the morning

      My mind becomes confused

      Between the dead and the sleeping

      And that 10 Severt road I must choose.

      I'm looking for an ANTI~Nuke spray can to save my life.

      I'm looking for more than a miracle in my life.

      And if you could see what it's done to stupid me

      To lose the the morals I knew

      
Could safely lead me to

      The land that I once knew.

      To learn as we grow old

      The Devil's secrets that were sold.

      It's not the way TEPCO say's it

      When they did those things to us.

      It's more the way they really know it

      When they lie to what will be.

      Why do we never get an answer

      When we're knocking at TEPCO's door?

      With a thousand million questions

      About hate and death and Nuclear war.

      It's where we stop and look around us

      There is nothing that we need.
      
In a world of persecution

      That is burning in it's greed.

      Will we ever get an answer
s
      Even knocking at God's door?
      I can see the black Plutonium
      On my bedroom floor.

      Great, Gasser. I'll answer with one. Did you see the one NewsBlackoutUSA posted the other day (and my "answer")?

      Moody Blues Knights in White Satin c. 2013

      Breathe deep the Plutonium Plume
      Watch life fade and buy a tomb
      Impassioned lovers Die as one
      Dying man cries for health and has none
      New mother buries her son
      Senior citizens die one by one

      Cold hearted orbs
      Fly through the night
      Uranium colors, erode our sight
      Hair is gray and skin Yellow white
      But we decide it's alright
      And continue to live the Illusion

      An answer (HoTaters):

      Moody Blues, circa 2013, "The Sunset"

      When the sun goes down
      Clouds black, pink, and brown,
      Lights out, the nuclear sunset
      Feel it with your eyes
      Life de-energized
      By gamma rays every day
      Take a look out there, try not to despair.

      I can't see at all
      even from the tower's great height
      But I can feel our lives slipping out of sight
      As the world goes on and on
      into nuclear night ….

      Gasser it shows how incredibly sad we are all musing over our end as radioactive death rushes to befriend us all as the God of Death and the hope for a far distant future where we will live again Gods mercy on another planet which knows no greed or evil.Where life there exists in a state of grace and bliss and hope grows eternally rich and home becomes home where the mother of all nurtures her world and burst forth with joy and mirth and love eternal…

    Cesium contaminated tuna…? It's from Fukushima, but safe for human consumption. I'll bet my research grant money on your being able to eat tuna and sushi to your heart's content.

    It doesn't matter how the tuna were exposed to the cesium: off the coast of Japan, from the middle of the Pacific or airborne particles that fell in rain, bioaccumaltion, etc…

    Nuclear experts are not eating fish because radiation from nuclear plants is harmful.

    It's contamination
    it won't hurt you
    its called contamination
    because its good for you
    Just a little E.Coli
    or radioactive cesium. plutonium, or strontium
    Put it in a shaker
    and add a bit for flavor, just like sage.
    Just ask your baker
    it's all the rage,
    It's contamination, the spice of life
    Azodocarbamide, pesticide
    it's in your bread
    it goes without saying
    fear is all in your head.
    It doesn't matter the customer is still paying.

    Azodicarbonamide, my spelling was wrong. Banned in some countries, it's use illegal with stiff fines, and/or jail time.

    It's getting so hard to keep eating healthy, they might as well sell chocolate covered spent fuel rods.

    "We don’t know exactly what is happening"

    "They could have also absorbed radioactive substance that traveled across the Pacific. I can think of numerous processes of contamination"

    All possible processes for contamination are occurring…correct.

    The radiation contaminated water is moving with the currents…
    The tuna (and several other types of fish) follow the currents during migration.
    Radiation is a travel companion along the way.

    We are back to the controversy about the effects of continuous exposure to low doses of radiation from food.

    If bluefin tuna from the Pacific is eaten several times per week, you get methyl mercury, PCBs and cesium.

    Which is worst? There is good evidence that carcinogenicity works synergistically.

    I am still eating Salmon because I am on a Paleolithic diet. King salmon from the Columbia River with Hanford radiation or Coho Salmon from Alaska – $12.99 a pound and it may kill you.

    On all fronts the extreme stupidity of modern man is killing us slowly. First, we extended our lifespans; but those gains will reverse when multiple diseases increase mortality and morbidity. The Standard American Diet alone will bring early diseases. Google: Paleolithic Diet. Dr. Cordain explains it.

    I always doubted those sampled tuna were from near Japan. The fisherman in Japan have essentially wiped out the bluefins:

    http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/jan/09/overfishing-pacific-bluefin-tuna

    The sickness of seals and starfish off Northern American coasts is the clue to how radiation arrived faster than they expected, but they won't admit it yet.

  • ;) @2:40 (approximately) on the video it states…

    Tuna migration is from 1 to 4 MONTHS.
    (Japan to US west coast)

    Yet the data/information we are fed is over 1 year old and this insidious catastrophe has continued unabated for 31 MONTHS.

    So it seems to me like a 'no brainer' to test the fish MONTHLY, at an absolute minimum… and report the results in a timely manner.

    I question as to 'why' this is not so.

    MONTHLY testing?

    I recall seeing a Tuna Migration chart in Okinawa that shows the circuitous route tuna take from spawning near Okinawa up to Japan east coast as they mature then across the Pacific to the US west coast then down to Okinawa on the return leg.
