Radioactive cloud floating over Europe is nothing to worry about, experts
say

Don't mind the cloud of radioactive pollution floating over Europe - it's
harmless, the French nuclear safety institute IRSN said Thursday.

Officials in Europe said they began detecting unusually high levels of
ruthenium 106, a radioactive atom that does not occur naturally, near France
in the last week of September.

The IRSN immediately "mobilized all its means of radiological monitoring of
the atmosphere and conducted regular analysis of the filters from its
monitoring stations," the agency said in a press release.

IRSN director Jean-Marc Peres told Reuters that the leak likely came from a
nuclear fuel treatment site or center for radioactive medicine in Russia or
Kazakhstan, not a nuclear reactor.

The radioactive cloud poses only an "extremely low" risk of contaminating
mushrooms and other foodstuffs that are imported into France, the IRSN said
in a statement.

"The potential health risk associated with this scenario is also very low,"
the IRSN said.

In January, the IRSN similarly assured Europeans that the small amounts of
nuclear radiation that were blooming throughout Europe were nothing to worry
about.

Do look it up - not really involved in biological processes, so most unlikely to be absorbed - unlike say Strontium 90.

All groups restored to help spread your vast knowledge to the unwashed
masses.


Do try to not hide.

You are Welcome.
