Plutonium from Sellafield in all children’s teeth

Plutonium from Sellafield in all children’s teeth

Radioactive pollution from the Sellafield nuclear plant in Cumbria has led to children’s teeth across Britain being contaminated with plutonium.

The Government has admitted for the first time that Sellafield ‘is a source of plutonium contamination’ across the country. Public Health Minister Melanie Johnson has revealed that a study funded by the Department of Health discovered that the closer a child lived to Sellafield, the higher the levels of plutonium found in their teeth.

Johnson said: ‘Analysis indicated that concentrations of plutonium… decreased with increasing distance from the west Cumbrian coast and its Sellafield nuclear fuel reprocessing plant – suggesting this plant is a source of plutonium contamination in the wider population.’

Johnson claimed the levels of plutonium are so minute that there is no health risk to the public. But this is disputed by scientists, MPs and environmental campaigners who have called for an immediate inquiry into how one of the world’s most dangerous materials has been allowed to continue to contaminate children’s teeth. There have long been claims of clusters of childhood leukaemia around Sellafield.

In the late 1990s researchers collected more than 3,000 molars extracted from young teenagers across the country during dental treatment and analysed them. To their surprise they found traces of plutonium in all the teeth including those from children in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Alarmingly, they discovered that those living closer to Sellafield had more than twice the amount of those living 140 miles away.

  1. Hell there is americium 241 in almost every disposable smoke detector sold, in murica. Americium is easily as bad as plutonium. There is enough of it in every Home Depot, 5 dollar smoke detector to kill an army.
    Think radioactive Nuclear Boy scout…

    The shit is massively accumulated in every landfill in murica.

    Our frkin criminal government allows it. They allow it because, it is a cheap way to pawn off some mega-tons of the high-level nuclear waste, from used nuclear fuel rods, from nuclear power plants, on a stupified and unsuspecting-uncaring-ignorant-moronic, public. Frikin millions of those shitty smoke detectors made. A shitty-goddamned 3 dollar smoke detector will from walmart will cause a scinillator or gamma scout to go off the goddamned scale!
    The nucleoape nuclear reactor assholes, politicians, and smoke detector maker assholes, are profiting hansomely from your medical bankrupsies, your kids add-autism, your cancer and disabilities your kids bad teeth and birth defects . What a bunch of dumn fukers americans are!
