A study on caesium contamination in human milk, as a consequence of the Chernobyl fallout, was conducted in 1989 on a group of women from one of the areas of northern Italy most heavily affected by the radioactive fallout. Their diet was studied, and the caesium intake was calculated by using the mean food activity concentration in that area. The caesium transfer factor was evaluated both as the ratio of caesium concentration in mother’s milk to the daily intake, and by using a simplified milk compartment model.

Similar results in Japan as reported by Australian ABC TV meet with assurances of “acceptable” and “safe” from nuclear industry and governmental authorities in Japan.
This is not acceptable.
Where consumers do not wish to buy and consume a product, we simply don’t. We buy something else.
Where, at the behest of a singular industry, government supplies an unwanted product on a compulsory basis and applies social and economic sanctions to objectors, it is central planning at its worst.
Out of this government and industry initiate a Cold War with their own populations.
