Whats the worry? – Dose or hot particle? Chris Busby

There is a lot of argument about the effects from Fukushima on the Pacific and the US west coast. I have just been reading one site “true facts about ocean radiation and. . .blah blah “.

I agree with the author about the total radiation concentration (activity) in sea water less than 30Bq/cubic metre. The calculation I made show that its unlikely that the total radioactivity levels in the will be higher than those which we had in the Irish Sea or the Baltic Sea, but the problem is the particles, and these are not described by “radioactivity levels”.

I attach a picture of an edible mussel (myrtilis edulis) from the Irish Sea. The tracks are from a hot particle, which would end up inside you if you ate it.
