The ongoing issues with the Fukushima nuclear power plant have raised the question of whether fish from Japan are safe to eat.
The attached video titled "Nuclear Fish?" is from E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork and the the Emmy Award-winning show The Doctors. The panel of doctors on the show address the question of whether fish are contaminated by Fukushima nuclear power plant and do they pose a health risk if they are being sold in America.
According to the video, recent studies show that the radioactivity in the fish from the area was about 3% above normal. The low level increase in radiation is not considered a public health threat at this time. The general consensus of the doctors in the discussion is that potential issues with mercury in fish are more of a concern that radiation coming from Japan.
The Japanese government won’t allow local fish in the Fukushima to be caught and sold for human consumption. But the questions remain for fish caught anywhere near the Japanese coast. If you see fish with a label of "from Japan" do you feel confident that it is safe?
Time will tell just how much impact the Fukushima nuclear accident will have on the world we live in.
