Japan Nuclear Radiation Found In Idaho, Washington and Canada Drinking Water
Last week Japan nuclear radiation was found in California tap water. This week the radioactive contamination has been found in drinking water in Idaho, Washington and Canada.
Japan Nuclear Radiation Found in California Drinking Water
Last week there was news of Japan nuclear radiation being found in San Francisco, California drinking water.
Today, new reports reveal that nuclear radiation has also been found in the drinking water in Idaho and Washington.
Japan Nuclear Radiation Found In San Francisco, CA Tap Water – Levels In Rainwater 18,100% Above Drinking Water Limit
University of Berkley scientists are reporting the detection of radioactive iodine in the rainwater at levels 18,1000% above federal drinking water limits. Caesium and TE-132 have also been detected.
Scientists have also detected radiation in San Francisco tap water and milk.
Japan Nuclear Radiation Found in Idaho and Washington Drinking Tap Water
MSNBC is now reporting on live TV that radiation is now being found in the drinking water in both Idaho and Washington.
Here is a video of the MSNBC report via http://MOXNews.com.
Update: Forbes has posted a blurb with a link to the original EPA press release. The Federal Drinking water standard is 3 PCL per liter. Levels detected were 0.2 PCL per liter or 6.66% of federal drinking water standards.
First U.S. Drinking Water Samples Show Radiation from Japan: Boise, Richland Wa.
Apr. 5 2011
Drinking water in Boise and Richland, Washington was found to contain extremely small amounts of radioactive isotopes from Japan’s nuclear disaster, the Environmental Protection Agency announced Monday night.
The tests were the first tests of U.S. drinking water by the EPA’s RadNet system since the Fukushima nuclear accident.
“Drinking water samples from two locations, Boise, Idaho and Richland, Washington, showed trace amounts of Iodine-131 – about 0.2 picocuries per liter in each case,” according to the EPA press release.
[Government claims radiation is safe… blah… blah… bullsh*t… blah…] … But Physicians for Social Responsibility recently issued a statement asserting “there is no safe level of radionuclide exposure, whether from food, water or other sources. Period.”The results come just two days after radioactive isotopes were found in rainwater samples from Boise and two other locations. A sample from Washington state showed no detectable radiation in those tests.
I give a hat tip to Forbes for being the first corporate media, to my knowledge, to link to a source saying there is no such thing as a safe level of radiation.
Japan Nuclear Radiation Found in Canada Drinking Water
The BBC has also reported that nuclear radiation is being found in the drinking water in Canada.
(The source story has disappeared but I will add a link to source and a snippet when I find it again)
The BBC article has disappeared, but here it is via the Times Live, South Africa. This story isn’t anywhere on US or Canada corporate media.

But the levels were extremely low, according to the Canadian Health Ministry and well-known experts in the Pacific province of British Colombia.
“Levels of radioactive Iodine-131 rose seven days after the reactor accident in Fukushima, but have dropped considerably since then,” Kris Starosta, a nuclear researcher at the Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, told the German Press Agency dpa.
Following the highest level of 12 bequerel per litre (bq/1) recorded on March 20, the latest analysis taken on March 29 showed a level of 3.4 bq/1.

And in case that story disappears like the BBC story did…
Does Radiation In Drinking Water Coincide With Nuclear Radiation Fallout Projections?
Compare the map of the locations where the radiation has been detected in the rainwater to this map of the Japan nuclear radiation fallout simulation for April 6th and 7th posted here.
Notice the fallout locations coincide very well with the map showing where radiation has been detected in the tap water.
Coincidence? I wonder about the other sates and areas of Canada.
No wonder protests are breaking out around the world as people from many nations suspect their governments of covering up the dangers of this disaster.
