Avoiding Seafood is Probably a Good Idea

I don't know how credible this article is, but, I definitely think avoiding seafood is probably a good idea.

HawaiiIsHot.com - At the Very Least, Your Days of Eating Pacific Ocean Fish Are Over

If that link doesn't work, you can try this Google cache link.

Addition, Aug. 18, 2015, 10:57 AM EDT: I guess both those links have probably been broken for quite some time. They were about the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

If I recall correctly, the original links featured a cropped version of this map:


Anyway, according to this blog post by Peter Greenberg, and also according to the complete, uncropped map itself, that map is only a map of tsunami wave amplitudes, not the spread of radiation from Fukushima. Good to know!

But I still think it's best to avoid seafood. Fukushima radiation isn't the only possible problem to worry about - there's also the possibility of contamination with mercury, dioxins, PCBs, etc.

And according to this page from ScientificAmerican.com, even farmed fish might be contaminated with mercury, dioxins, PCBs, and various other bad things.

Anyway, the following recent post to my personal blog at Astroblahhh.Com isn't primarily about seafood, nor the Fukushima nuclear disaster - but there is some info about seafood in it.

Plus, info which should probably be of interest to anyone who eats. Even vegetarians:
