NY Times Contributor Confirms California Rainwater 181 Times Above Drinking Water Standards For Radioactive Iodine-131

Federal officials have still not published any official data on nuclear fallout from Japan disaster

… Radiation from Japan rained on Berkeley during recent storms at levels that exceeded drinking water standards by 181 times and has been detected in multiple milk samples…

Radiation falling with rain can cover grass that is eaten by cows and other animals. It can also fall on food crops or accumulate in reservoirs that are used for irrigation or drinking water. Seafood can also be affected. …

A rooftop water monitoring program managed by UC Berkeley’s Department of Nuclear Engineering detected substantial spikes in rain-borne iodine-131 during torrential downpours a week ago. …

The levels exceeded federal drinking water thresholds, known as maximum contaminant levels, or MCL, by as much as 181 times.

Patty Lovera, assistant director at the nonprofit Food and Water Watch:

“The official mantra from a lot of folks in government is, ‘Oh, it’s OK in low levels.’”

“But low levels add up. We would like to see a more coherent strategy for monitoring air and water in agricultural areas and then using that data to come up with a plan, if you need one, to go look at the food system.”

    What a scary time!

    I found this article on radiation levels. I don’t know if what they say is true but it was moderately reassuring.

    “Although those levels are several times higher than the EPA’s drinking-water standard for iodine-131, the agency says that the standard is designed to protect a person who drinks contaminated water daily for 70 years. However, because the isotope has a half-life of eight days, levels of iodine-131 are expected to drop quickly.”

    • Reassured is what they want us to be, but I don’t buy it. They’re going to keep telling us everything’s OK. Eat the food, drink the milk. Then, 25 years down the road when millions have died or are dying, the true story will finally come out. They’re even telling the people in Japan that the seafood is safe to eat while they’re dumping radioactive water directly into the Pacific.

  4. It’s a mess of great magnitude and nothing can be done.My other concern is that countries still want nukes. They think it makes them safer or stronger. Don’t any of them see if you release a few the entire atmosphere of the entire planet gets contaminated?

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
