The upper layers of the soil in some parts of the U.S. contain up to 10,000 percent more cesium than previously thought Danger Zone

Many people have stopped talking about the consequences of the accident at the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1", but the pollution continues. The upper layers of the soil in the state of California and the Pacific Northwest are at risk of radiation after the disaster. Soil samples taken from different locations in California, showed that the greatest amount of radioactive cesium, 0.0739 Ci / kg was found in the city of Sacramento. But, according to the scientist Marco Kaltofena this data is 108 times more on the Cascade Mountains.

Recall that the half life of cesium-134 for two years, and cesium-137 — thirty years. Both substances destroy healthy cells, causing cancer.
