Radiation found in West Coast milk.

Radiation news is all over and it is scary.

I am committed to providing access to the links that I come across that may answer some of the questions moms and dads may have.


“First the scary news: Trace amounts of radiation have been found in milk from Washington and California. It’s believed that the radioactive agents were transferred as isotopes from Japan to the West Coast through wind, absorbed in the grass, which was then eaten by dairy farm cows.

Now the good news: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency released a joint statement that the iodine-131 they found in the milk was “far below levels of public health concern, including for infants and children.” In fact, the levels were 5000 times below the legal limit prescribed by the FDA.
