    That's the reason I stocked up on a LOT of Tuna right after the Fukushima disaster, before the radioactivity got in the ocean's fish.

    Now see here, I have heard from many reliable sources (here on GT) that we never have anything to fear about contamination from man in our waters. Be it agricultural run-off, pollution from oil-drilling sources, industrial dumping and now the atomic dangers. Eat without fear!!

    Lots of bodybuilders eat tuna fish for protein. Lots of bodybuilders also use steroids. What happens when radioactive tuna fish combines with steroids in a bodybuilder's muscles?

    Not possible. I was assured by many knowledgeable people that the Fukushima incident was of little concern.

    Maybe I can get one of these tunas to bite me so that I can grow gills and live underwater?

    The paragraph everyone will not notice...

    "The levels of radioactive cesium were 10 times higher than the amount measured in tuna off the California coast in previous years. But even so, that's still far below safe-to-eat limits set by the U.S. and Japanese governments."

    Right. The limits set by the governments that sponsor and fund atomic power plants.

    Me? I don't want ANY radiation in my food. I could care less about some bureaucrat's "safe to eat" limits.

    Do you eat bananas? Kidney beans? Brazil nuts? if so, you should re-think your plan.

    Guess you are gonna starve then. There is always some radiaton in your food. In fact, the amount found in these fish only increased the total radiation level about 3% above normal background levels.

    Exactly, you need potassium to live. Even naturally occuring potassium is slightly radioactive.

    Oh stop it now. It's more fun to run around like a chicken with your head cut off and drive-by-snark people who don't agree with you.

    I trust them. I really do. It's safe. Carry on.

    For the record, I'm largely in line with your theme. Man-made radioactivity in food is double-plus bad.

    The wonders of indistrial "progress." I know there is a lot of garbage in nearly all of our food, including, but not limited to: radiation, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and a lot of other tasty agrochemicals.

    So I should just throw my hands up and surrender?

    Trust whom? The people that say ZOMFG!!!! Lolz!!!! The tuna haz nooklear, BRB!!.

    Or people who say "Science shows that there is radiation everywhere, etc, etc...."?

    You're probably right in not trusting either one, but if you have to make a choice...choose wisely.
