Radioactivity Found in Minke Whales

Although the radiation levels found in minke whales caught by Japanese recently are below accepted levels, it is evidence that cesium from the Fukushima plant is moving through marine food chains in the Pacific Ocean. This article from FoxReno includes a small video clip showing minke whales.

We can expect to see many more stories on this topic as the Japanese continue their scientific whaling, and as necropsies are performed on whales that wash ashore.
