Oregon Tuna With Fukushima Radiation Perfectly Safe To Eat...

he scientists point out that the isotopes are barely detectable -- trace amounts that remain well below the safety standards set by the EPA.
"You can't say there is absolutely zero risk because any radiation is assumed to carry at least some small risk," Delvan Neville, an Oregon State graduate research assistant and lead author of the study, said in a news release. "But these trace levels are too small to be a realistic concern."
"A year of eating albacore with these cesium traces is about the same dose of radiation as you get from spending 23 seconds in a stuffy basement from radon gas, or sleeping next to your spouse for 40 nights from the natural potassium-40 in their body," Neville added. "It's just not much at all."
