BRAWM..Any testing of ocean waters here in CA or anywhere in North America?
Thank you so much for all your hard work and this forum! While spending the 4th weekend at a beautiful beach where many children were swimming and enjoying the ocean, I had to wonder if it was safe. I know that the Pacific is a huge ocean and diluter, but if radioactive iodine was found in seaweed in Canada http://www.bclocalnews.com/news/118812574.html
then wouldn't Cesium and other isotopes follow the same path and be working their way down the coast? I know that iodine would be concentrated in the seaweed, but are we sure that the levels of the other isotopes are not high enough to be a health hazard for children swimming and playing in the ocean for hours? Will/can you test the ocean waters here in CA for Cesium? Seems a simple thing to do. I am wondering why nobody is testing this and making the numbers public. Do we not want to know?
