Radiation In Massachusetts Rainwater Likely From Japan..
BOSTON — Health officials said Sunday that one sample of Massachusetts rainwater has registered very low concentrations of radiation, most likely from the Japanese nuclear power plant damaged earlier this month by an earthquake and tsunami.
John Auerbach, the Massachusetts commissioner of public health, said that radioiodine-131 found in the sample – one of more than 100 that have been taken around the country – has a short life of only eight days. He said the drinking water supply in the state was unaffected and officials do not expect any health concerns.
Before I continue with more from the article, are you serious Mr, John Auerbach? You mean to tell me that Radioactive iodine is being found in the rainwater yet the drinking water is unaffected? Who, just WHO!? in their right mind is seriously going to believe that? Our drinking water comes from the rainwater. WOW!!!! Doublespeak at it’s finest.
And what in the world has happened to objective journalism? An official says something that is totally nonsensical and it is printed and echoed to every news outlet in the country without even being questioned for validity.
