Is it safe to eat fish?

I can remember the time of the nuclear reactor melt-down at Chernobyl.

Warnings were issued to be wary of eating welsh lamb. It seems the fallout had effected areas across England and Wales. The grass was contaminated and being eaten by lambs. Some caution was advised.

Since the reactor calamity in Japan no such warning has been given and yet the sea must have received lethal doses of radioactive water.

Do you think the ocean has been monitored for damage and poisoning to the fish stocks?

I only ask because of the strange phenomenal occurrences we read about in the papers.

With sea birds and penguins are dying off in large numbers and depleted fish stocks around the eastern coast, should we reduce our fish diet?

More to the point, should scientists take a long look at the problems which may affect us in the future?

Remember, radioactivity will stay in the sea for hundreds of years to come. This is another reason to curb our continued rush towards a nuclear powered country. We have sufficient coal resources to last a lifetime. We may not have a lifetime if we switch to nuclear power.

Maybe it’s time for a rethink.

What do you think?
