Radioactive food contamination found near Sellafield nuclear plant

Here’s an article from the UK that should give anyone pause.

RADIATION has been found in food 80 miles across the border from a Cumbrian nuclear-plant a report has revealed.

Nuclear waste released from the Cumbrian reprocessing site has made fish and shellfish caught off the Dumfriesshire coast slightly radioactive.

And fish-fans in Dumfriesshire have the highest exposure to nuclear radiation of anyone north of the Border.

Proximity to soft tissues, duration of exposure, type of radiation, all have have a direct and detrimental effect resulting in a high risk of developing a malignant cancer tumor.
