FDA Refuses to Test Fish from Japan for Radioactivity: Government Pretends Radioactive Fish Is Safe As They Stock Up On Potassium Iodide
The FDA is once again allowing people to die. They hold onto cures for years for testing as many people die of illness and seem to rubber stamp anything that seems to depopulate the American people. The FDA approves harmful Vaccines, GMO's, and other additives without a flinch. You can now add radiation to that list!
The FDA is telling us they will not monitor radiation in fish on the West Coast of the U.S. As the Anchorage Daily News notes:
North Pacific fish are so unlikely to be contaminated by radioactive material from the crippled nuclear plant in Japan that there’s no reason to test them, state and federal officials said this week.
DeLancey, the FDA spokeswoman, said “We have not been doing any testing. We’ve been working with NOAA to keep an eye on U.S. waters, to see if there is any cause for alarm, and we do have the capability to begin testing if that does occur.”
Asked to explain what kind of monitoring was taking place in the ocean, DeLancey said, “You would have to talk directly to NOAA … I don’t really want to speak for another agency.”
But NOAA fisheries spokeswoman Kate Naughton declined to answer questions and referred a reporter back to DeLancey and the EPA.
DeLancey said that so far, there’s no reason for concern about Fukushima. The radioactive materials in the water near Fukushima quickly become diluted in the massive volume of the Pacific, she said. Additionally, radioactive fallout that lands on the surface tends to stay there, giving the most unstable ones isotopes like iodine time to decay before reaching fish, she said.
Of course, radioactive isotopes like cesium 137 are very long-lived, and so won’t necessarily decay before they reach fish.
And – in typical Orwellian agency-language – the FDA is trying to reassure people that eating contaminated radioactive fish poses no health risk. As the Wall Street Journal notes:
U.S. public-health officials sought Tuesday to reassure consumers about the safety of food in the U.S., including seafood, amid news that fish contaminated with unusually high levels of radioactive materials had been caught in waters 50 miles from the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan.
No contaminated fish have turned up in the U.S., or in U.S. waters, according to experts from the Food and Drug Administration [which isn't testing], Environmental Protection Agency and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They expressed confidence that even a single fish sufficiently contaminated to pose a risk to human health would be detected by the U.S. monitoring system. [But would the government announce such detection?]
They also dismissed concerns that eating fish contaminated at the levels seen so far in Japan would pose such a risk. [Alexander Higgins points out that Japanese fish exceed federal radiation limits by 2400%]
Thomas Frieden, head of the CDC in Atlanta, said he expected continued detection of low levels of radioactive elements in the water, air and food in the U.S. in coming days, but that readings at those levels “do not indicate any level of public health concern.”
Is this yet another example of the government responding to the nuclear accident by trying to raise acceptable radiation levels and pretending that radiation is good for us?
Indeed, the ocean currents head from Japan to the West Coast of the U.S.
What is even more concerning all these people of importance are talking about how population will fall greatly in years to come. By design of course. The United States Government is blocking citizens from buying Potassium Iodide. Potassium Iodide is very effective and is a manditory component of any American Patriot survival kit.
There is an overall estimate of near 4,000,000 people prepping for a huge financial crash as the United States Dollar is gauranteed to be stripped as world reserve currency. The government has also added preppers to the domestic terrorist list. The government has been buying up almost ALL potassium Iodide making it near impossible to get.
