Fukushima Fallout Greatest

The Canadian government has confirmed that the Fukushima disaster will release more radioactive fallout than all the previous atmospheric nuclear tests combined. US sailors exposed to radiation from the Fukushima meltdowns are coming down with exposure symptoms. A lawsuit has been filed against TEPCo by attorney Charles Bonner who now represents 51 sailors abroad the USS Ronald Reagan contaminated during disaster relief operations. The ship remained in the disaster zone for almost a month. Western governments continue to claim fallout levels now reaching the Pacific coast do not pose a health threat. Cesium 137, a radioactive isotope, does not exist in nature, only non-radioactive Cesium 133 is natural. The only source is from man-made nuclear reactions. This chart shows the Fukushima disaster and Japan's almost total inability to contain contamination will release more radioactive Cesium that either the Chernobyl meltdown or atmospheric weapons testing. Cesium 137 has a half-life of about thirty years, so it will enter the food chain. The contamination is forecasted based on computer modeling to last ten years off the California coast:
