Radioactive fish near Vt. nuke plant deemed common

Operators of the troubled 38-year-old nuclear plant on the banks of the river, where work is under way to clean up leaking radioactive tritium, revealed this month that it also found soil contaminated with strontium-90, an isotope linked to bone cancer and leukemia.

Three days later, officials said a fish caught four miles upstream from the reactor in February had tested positive for strontium-90 in its bones. State officials say they don't believe the contamination came from Vermont Yankee.

Does that mean strontium-90 is present in fish caught around the world?

"Yes. It's everywhere," said John Till, president of South Carolina-based Risk Assessment Corp. and a consultant for more than three decades in testing for radioactive substances in the environment.

TVNL Comment: Obama wants MORE nuclear plants and more drilling (see BP oil spill). Using or drilling for either of these energy sources can lead to accidents that can destroy this planet. Efforts to end their use should be the only focus of a good leader. And to the people who support nuclear power...the fish is on us...bon appétit.
