Fukushima's Radiation: Why I Fear for Canadians
In 2012, The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) stopped testing for radiation in imported foods. This is alarming since scientists, doctors, and researchers know that radiation in the food chain takes time to show up on our dinner plates - sometimes many years. We cannot dilute radioactive isotopes. Once consumed by aquatic life, the radioactive isotopes re-concentrate by orders of magnitude in each step along the food chain. This is where North Americans have been led astray.
