Radiation in tuna is 10 X greater than normal after the Fukushima power plant meltdown. Radioactive material is still pouring into the ocean with no end in sight.

@monconserv: So what's your point? Just because the Japanese chose to put a nuclear plant in an unsafe location does NOT mean that Nuclear is an unsafe form of electric globally. The mercury levels in the fish are still worse for you than the radiation, so some fact-checking might be in order on your end.

Tuna was originally called "Ocean Carp" and did not sell until the industry invented the new name "Tuna".
