I recently found a web site that is giving data about radionucleotides in the food (t/h to Hattie). It shows that radionucleotides such as cesium are beginning to show up in eel weed on the West Coast.
Washington State Pacific coast eel weed
Detector not specified – October 2013 – Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Cesium 134: 8.14 Bq/Kg
Cesium 137: 8.88 Bq/Kg
Cobalt 60: 3.7 Bq/Kg
* Seaweed from Maine was tested at the same time and was below the level of certainty for detection with their equipment. They also tested seaweed purchased in Chiba Japan, results available in the link above.
As would be predicted, radionucleotides that mimic potassium are being concentrated in plant material. To find measurable levels in Washington State argues against the statements of the experts that the ocean is so vast that all will be diluted to unmeasurable levels.
