Crippled nuclear plant to be encased in concrete as 2 U.S. states report radiation found in milk

Japanese power company officials have conceded defeat in their battle to contain the leak of dangerous levels of radiation from the Fukushima Nuclear plant.

Japan today announced plans to encase the leaking reactor in a tomb of concrete amid reports that the radiation fallout from Japan is affecting our food supply in the United States.

Additionally, radiation levels in seawater outside the nuclear plant is over 5,000 times the normal level. Fishermen have been warned to operate in waters at least 13 miles from the damaged nuclear plant. But that’s not nearly far enough for American consumers and seafood restaurants that rely on fish imported from Japan.

According to online reports, The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced very low traces of radiation particles were found in milk in Washington state and California.

Results from screening samples of milk taken in the past week in Spokane, Washington, and in San Luis Obispo County, California, detected radioactive iodine at a level 5,000 times lower than the limit set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, officials said.

But traces of radiation can build up in the body over time. Click here to read the signs and symptoms of radiation poisoning.

Exact details haven’t been revealed, but Japanese officials, with the assistance of U.S. gov. agencies, plan to shut down all four crippled reactors and abandon attempts to cool down the exposed fuel rods. The final move involves pouring tons of concrete onto the reactors to entomb the reactor cores and stop the leak of radiation.

    Good! I heard that they were trying to pay people ridiculous amounts of money per day to help stop the meltdown.

    Workers were being exposed to dangerous levels and basically risking their lives to help cool the reactors.

    And the nuclear lobby wants you to believe that nuclear power is the clean, environmental option. Sure, until something happens and then nuclear is an environmental nightmare. Milk contamination is just the first sign. If it’s in the milk, then it’s in the meat…

    I already know about Monsanto….which is why I gave up milk, red meat, and chicken unless I got to the organic farmer’s market.

    I barely buy anything from a large supermarket anymore. I go to the Farmer’s Markets in my area (I live around a lot of Jews and Mormons) that way I can SEE who’s farming the animals/veggies I eat and can even visit their farm and see their practices if necessary….

    Monsanto is the damn devil…just like Wall Street. But I won’t go there. Want to REALLY open your eyes, watch “Inside Job.”

    Nola_D, come on this is a celebrity gossip site. I drop by most times and lurk because I don’t know who 80% of these ‘stars’ are but I do like to participate on some of the current events and political posts besides it seems as if most of the other posters have some type of personal relationships with each other and few people respond to my posts. Maybe mine are too serious and not comical enough.

    When I feel discussing hard news or politics I usually go to Slate, The Root, Salon, etc.

    @yallcrazy and @stillasassyone.. I am so happy so many people know about Monsanto..I have researched them for years and talked to alot of farmers who are to this day still affected by this company and their board members in the White House.

    The Inside Job as well as The Corporation.

    Here are other documentary/recommedations:
    Sicko ,Food Inc., King Corn, The Future of Food,and Fast Food Nation to name a few..

    We have to stop listening to what the government is telling us. Trust me they are not here to protect us. Just go behind the scenes of the pharmaceutical industry and FDA..
