As 300 tonnes of contaminated water pours into the Pacific Ocean every day from the damaged Daiichi nuclear plant site, alarming reports that fisherman have now resumed commercial operations are hitting the news.
That’s right, Japanese families are now being served sea life from the same coast as the Daiichi disaster. This cannot be good. Check out this report from Mainichi:
Fishery products caught off Fukushima Prefecture were ready for trial sale as early as Sept. 26 after fisheries cooperatives here resumed test fishing the day before.
Some 5.2 tons of 11 varieties of fish — including octopus, horsehair crab, blackbelly rosefish and angler — were landed at the Matsukawaura Port in Soma, northern Fukushima Prefecture, after 21 dragnet fishing boats returned there on the afternoon of Sept. 25.
After screening the catches for radioactive materials, the seafood is to go on trial sale at supermarkets and other retailers as early as Sept. 26.
The 58-year-old captain of a 19-ton boat that took part in the trial said, “I felt good when I went fishing, but I’m concerned whether the catches will find buyers. I want consumers to feel secure and eat the products as we will only ship them after screening them strictly.”
A 61-year-old official with the Soma-Futaba fisheries cooperative said, “We can only earn a living on the sea. We had come to a standstill, but we will move forward toward full-scale fishing.”
The details of what this testing involves, or what levels have been deemed acceptable for consumption have not been made clear, but if Japan is anything like North America, which has simply just raised the amount of many toxic and radioactive materials allowed in food, then this new development in the ongoing Fukushima disaster cannot be good. Take a look at what World Truth TV reported:
Samples of milk taken across the United States have shown radiation at levels 2000 percent higher than EPA maximums. The reason that milk is so significant is that it is representative of the entire food supply. According to an article published on Natural News, “Cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as food crops and water supplies. In other words, when cows’ milk starts testing positive for high levels of radioactive elements, this is indicative of radioactive contamination of the entire food supply.”
The Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Deception Protection Agency, instead of refusing to prohibit the sale of tainted foods and mandatory testing of foods produced and harvested from the Pacific Coast, have simply raised the “acceptable levels” of radioactive material in foods.
So with 300 tonnes of contaminated water pouring into the ocean each day near the plant, and commercial fisherman now catching fish in those waters, how long will it be until people start glowing in the dark after a plate of salmon maki or from the next tuna fish sandwich you serve your child?
