Radiation In Milk?
First they found radiation in milk in Spokane, Washington. Then they found radiation in milk in San Luis Obispo County, California. Now they have found radiation in milk in Arizona as well. Should we just start assuming that all of our milk is going to have nuclear radiation from Japan in it until further notice? Of course federal authorities insist that the levels of radiation being detected are completely safe and that nobody should start worrying about the milk that they are drinking. In fact that there are even some crackpots out there that are attempting to claim that nuclear radiation from Japan is actually good for us. Yes, let’s all run out and guzzle as much of that “nutritious” radioactive milk as we can. Of course it isn’t just milk that the radiation is getting into. It is showing up in water supplies from coast to coast and it is inevitable that it is going to get into most of our food products. Not that there is much that we can do about it.
Hopefully our authorities are right and that the radiation from Japan is not a very serious threat. But having to think twice before drinking a glass of milk is not very comforting.
