TALK ABOUT HOT MEALS …

From less radioactive days

By David Ritchie

Earlier posts have explained how the food chain in the ocean concentrates radioactivity in seafood.

The higher you go in the chain, the more radioactivity builds up.

For an example of the result, check the following video from SimplyInfo:

Gives “hot food” a new meaning, doesn’t it?

And the process isn’t over yet. Next time, we’ll look at what is happening still higher in the ocean food chain — to sea mammals.
