Radiation levels in tuna tripled after Fukushima


Fish caught off the coast of Oregon have tested positive for radiation and the researchers that discovered this say Fukushima is to blame. An Oregon State University (OSU) research project found that radiation in albacore tuna has been steadily increasing ever since the nuclear disaster back in 2011, with average radiation levels now triple what they were before the consecutive meltdowns.

Chernobyl scientist discovers antioxidants help body adapt to radiation


Research on birds living near the Chernobyl nuclear disaster area adds more proof that antioxidants are able to protect the body from radiation damage. The study was published in the journal Functional Ecology on April 24.

New technique uses 25 times less radiation to produce tumor images in high-resolution 3D


Although medical applications may still be several years away, researchers have developed a new cancer screening technique that uses 25 times less radiation than a current mammogram but produces a dramatically better image.

Radiation 'therapy' kills children with brain tumors who might otherwise survive just fine


Children diagnosed with the most common type of pediatric brain tumor are significantly more likely to die from radiation treatment than from the tumor itself, according to the first comprehensive, large-scale cohort study of long-term survival in such patients.

Radiation from cell phones linked to erectile dysfunction


As reported in the Environmental Health Trust's latest newsletter, cell phones have now been linked to erectile dysfunction (ED). While numerous studies have shown that cell phone radiation leads to human sperm death and damage and decreased fertility, the new report of increased erectile dysfunction is sending shock waves through the men's health community.

Japan's nuclear industry sacrificing 99.99 percent of its people for profits, says expert


The three-year anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster recently passed, and a prominent nuclear expert has come out in protest of the way both the Japanese government and the country's nuclear industry continue to handle the situation. During a recent episode of the Nuclear Hotseat podcast, celebrity and lawmaker Taro Yamamoto lamented how the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) is still downplaying the threat of radiation, which he believes will end up "sacrificing" 99.99 percent of the Japanese population.

Scientists sound alarm as Fukushima radiation is detected on British Columbia's coast


Canadian scientists and authorities, as well as local residents, are alarmed at the discovery of radioactive metal in the Fraser Valley that came from Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant, as they voiced concerns recently about the long-term impact of radiation along British Columbia's west coast.

Scientists studying radiation in Japan are subject to 'insidious censorship'


In order to appease the fears of the public and maintain order, leaders of government institutions often restrict valuable and alarming information from broadcast or publication. This censorship keeps the masses unaware but cooperative, as the truth is picked through and decimated. Such leaders are often timid and tend to uphold the status quo. They will typically refrain from riling people up so as not to disturb the powers of special interest that could shutter their career and livelihood.

More than 100 Navy members struggle for justice as radiation slowly kills them


When a historic earthquake created a massive tsunami that destroyed part of the Fukushima Daiichi power station in northern Japan in March 2011, causing meltdowns at three of the plant's six nuclear reactors, a radiological disaster ensued.
