Testing Many Types Of Pacific Ocean Fish With Inspector Pancake Style Ionizing Radiation Detector on Sept. 17th, 2013 - In 2013, 98 Percent Of Fish Were Discarded By Japanese Fishermen After Fukushima Hit Pacific With Super Sky High Levels Of Radioactive Heavy Metal Poisons

WHAT HAPPENED AT FUKUSHIMA IS BEING COVERED UP, DENIED, SUPPRESSED, IGNORED AND MINIMIZED BY JUST ABOUT EVERYONE



Reports: “Highly significant quantity” of fission products being flushed into environment by water used on Fukushima molten fuel, including plutonium and curium — Radioactivity to recirculate for many generations in food chain, meat content will increase with time 

Fukushima is releasing a Niagara Falls of radiation into the Pacific, starting on 3/11 and continuing forever.  

The airborne radiation already swept over and caused a 98% dead creatures and plankton covering the ocean bottom in 2011. 

2013 - Fukushima Radiation Traced in Pacific Seafood

98 percent of fish were discarded by Japanese fishermen after Fukushima, due to higher than allowed radiation levels, according to this news cast segment. 

But the Japanese head of government claims that all food including fish right out of the Fukushima harbor is safe to eat, and that more radiation is good for everyone, via the hormesis theory

CAN FOODS BE TESTED FOR IONIZING RADIATION OR HEAVY METAL RADIOACTIVE POISONS WITH A STANDARD HAND HELD GEIGER COUNTER? 


So Cal Fish Test - Not Hot - Not Yet

Sep 17, 2013 "EnviroReporter took a road trip to the Central Coast of California that included visiting a fisherman and his wife, Will and Robin, at their beautiful Santa Barbara home to test an assortment of fish and sea creatures for radiation. Will offered us an excellent opportunity to test yellowtail, bluefin tuna, rockfish, bluefin tuna "collar," mussels, squid, albacore tuna and yellowtail collar. All the fish was caught locally by Will and measured at background. This is probably because the Sea of Fuku Goo hasn't made it down to Southern California yet. 

The results, while hopeful for the time being, do not change EnviroReporter's admonition not to eat or consume anything from the Pacific unless you can verify yourself it is radiation-free. That includes seaweed and its derivative carrageenan which is widely used in the food industry and toothpaste for its gelling, thickening and stabilizing properties. But at least for the time being, these anecdotal tests show that at least some of Southern California's fish are still not hot."

INTERPRETATION OF ABOVE TEST

The first thing to understand about testing food is that for 'official' testing, one must test many hundreds if not thousands of samples of the same thing, and then see what results one gets. 

In order to do a proper food radiation test, all foods must first be freeze dried, or all samples must consist of dried food or things like dried milk powder, because water blocks radiation. Incorrect radiation readings are the only possible result, when testing 'wet' foods. 

Dried food must be placed in an official food radiation testing machine, such as the one shown below. A proper test involves leaving the food sample in the machine for a longer period of time, such as 30 minutes to 4 hours. 


Ideally, your local grocery store will have one of these food radiation detection machines as shown above installed soon, thanks to you suggesting it to them, right? 

With a pancake style detector, it is difficult or impossible to determine if the food item is 'safe', because it is not designed to do this job at all. With a tube type cheaper geiger counter it is definitely impossible to test food or drinks for radiation, because they are definitely not designed to do that, AT ALL. 

If the background radiation is at an average of 50, a 15% error on the high side would be a high reading of 57, but several of the fish came in at 70, which to us means there may be something there. Not that much, but something. The difference between 57 and 70 is 13.. Of course there is no way to know for sure, unless a person does a timed test both on the background radiation and on the food sample. This is the ONLY way to figure out radiation levels in food that are less than screaming hot. 

Now if we assume the 13 counts per minute indicates that there is some radiation in at least one of these fish samples, how would we find out what that means more specifically? 

Testing to see if there is radioactive strontium or cesium or plutonium inside of a food like fish would mean taking a sample of dried fish to a location where more sophisticated radiation testing equipment is available, such as a lead lined container and a device that can 'read' individual isotopes, as well as provide a radiation measurement in bq/kg specifically, such as the one shown above. 

FOOD BASED RADIATION DOES NOT HAVE TO BE AT HIGH LEVELS IN ORDER TO END UP WITH RADIATION POISONING





It is possible to get cancer from eating a food with just one hot particle inside of it, which would not show up on a Geiger counter. Ingesting multiple hot particles over time means that they build up in the body. 

Geiger counters like this are NOT designed to detect radiation in food, bottom line. Here we have evidence of why it is so hard to use a radiation detector in that way, unless the food item is screaming hot.. 

At best, a pancake detector is a first, very rough, screening tool to figure out if something is screaming hot or not.. Anything more, and one needs a much more precise and sensitive radiation testing machine. Especially with kids, it pays to keep the food as clean as possible, with radiation levels below 5 bq/kg. A standard tube or pancake type Geiger counter cannot tell you about foods with this low of a radiation level. 

A THREE PRONG STRATEGY IS NEEDED TO FIND OUT IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH RADIATION CONTAMINATION IN A GIVEN POPULATION


That is why a two prong radiation detection strategy is important. First, work with a local group or community group and convince a local grocery store to install an official $15,000 food radiation detecting machine. 

Then buy a pancake style radiation detector to protect the kids and family everywhere else. Between those two things, that is about as much as you can do in the way of detecting dangerous levels of radiation. 

A third way to offer protection to a population is to test an entire population for internal radiation contamination. Whatever radiation contamination is in the food and drinks, will bioaccumulate over time, and get worse with time as well.  It is easiest to measure radiation contamination at the top of the food chain, where it is easiest to find, via a whole body radiation detection machine.
