Within the past couple weeks, a news story broke that tuna were found off the California coast carrying radiation from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown last year. While scary, the overwhelming majority of the coverage I’ve seen indicates the radiation levels are too low to make anyone sick. The levels are lower, in fact, than the radiation found regularly in some of the other foods we eat.
I’m no expert on glow-in-the-dark tuna, however. What have you seen? Are radioactive tuna nothing to worry about? Should we be more concerned with mercury in fish? Or is this issue being minimized to avoid a big scare?
