Not all instances are "that bad".
Really... Then why don't you go volunteer to work in place of the robots at fukushima. Then get back to us. Your bullshit, no matter how thoughtfully worded, is still, BULLSHIT

Consuming any Cesium-134 is unacceptable. All the words and opinions in the world will not stop cancer.
You forgot to include in your post:

"He (Jay Cullen, the guy that did the report) says the levels of the element detected were incredibly low, “10,000 times lower than the maximum allowable level in food set by Health Canada.”

There are trace amount of radioactive substances EVERYWHERE, which includes even the bananas you eat and blood coursing in your veins. If the amount is "10,000 times lower than the maximum allowable level in food" then it probable would take these trace amounts to be 10,000 to 100,000 times higher than they are before they effect you.

I'm pretty sure that Cesium-134 was one of the sample radioactive sources that me and the other students handled in the labs while taking a radiation safety class and the dose of radiation we got from it was likely higher than the radiation from the trace amounts of Cesium-134 you would get from eating the fish.

You're forgetting to mention that you work for nuclear power. Yeah you do. Go peddle your shilling somewhere where morons buy the IT'S ALL GOOD. YOU ONLY DIE A LITTLE BIT, mentality.

Well how bad is uranium mining in the context of mining any kind of material? I don't know exactly bad coal mining is but the fatality rate is much higher than a lot of other jobs out there but people still do it because they need the money even if they know that the people running such operations don't really give a rat's backside about their lives or safety.

I don't work in nuclear power (although I wish I was qualified enough to get a job there) however my dad was in nuclear power and I know people that work in the industry. And in case you are wondering he was exposed to a dose a radiation that had the potential to kill him while cleaning up after the TMI incident, but since the dose was mostly not adsorbed (due to the source being Beta instead of Gamma) it was mostly non-life threatening; although it is plausible that if my family pursed litigation we could potentiality win a case over it. Not that we would. To be honest I wish I could ask him more questions about the industry but he passed away in the early 90's so that is no longer possible.

I may have not made a remark recently but I have mentioned in earlier posts that I'm pro-nuclear power. Although you may not believe it, I'm more than willing to listen to any real proof about the dangers of nuclear power and have even remarked that one of the best sources of the incidents and dangers of nuclear power can be found in book called the plutonium files, which can be bought on Amazon for under $20 as well as one of the best cases of what can go wrong in a nuclear plant can be found by looking up and reading about the SL-1 test reactor in which 3-4 people died from the reactor actually going super critical; which is the about absolute worst thing that can happen to a nuclear power plant.

To be honest I would be willing to share additional things I know but I believe it might not be used in any meaningful way or it would be taken out of context by those who don't really understand how a nuclear power plant work.

I have already discussed the matter with DaJavoo to enough of a degree where we both believe that nuclear technology and power is necessary for the future (since completely abandoning existing technology could or would create worse problems) but extreme regulations and safety measures may be needed in order take every precaution until technology advances enough to make it even safer than it is today.

Today people are often so scared about the dangers of everything that in doing so they have the potential of exposing themselves to even greater risks if they try to protect themselves from something that isn't even dangerous. As a kid I was aware that there was something called 'acceptable risk' in dealing with anything and everything, but I guess such a mind set no longer applies. While worrying about radiation and what some people are saying about it, have you also considered the dangers of drinking milk, water, or anything else you consume? I'm sure you try you can find enough information about it that you either no longer feel safe about eating anything or you just get tired of the subject and not think too much about it.

Also if you look into some of these situation the is the possibility that some people may be doing this more in an effort in order to make money than out of concern for people's health; such as in some of the incidents in which Greenpeace has been accused of trying to blackmail the company's they go against.
