Posted in: Japan prepares for release of tritium from Fukushima plant See in context

I have over 30 years in the US commercial nuclear industry. Tritium is a normal byproduct of all reactors and has no measurable impact on living organisms. The beta decay (a fast electron) has so little energy it cannot penetrate skin. The byproduct is helium, completely inert. The amount t be released by Fukushima will have no effect on people or marine life.

People who are anti-nuclear use any mention of radioactivity to instill fear in the uninformed masses. It has been five years since a disastrous natural phenomenon wrecked three reactors at Fukushima. There is no mention that nobody has died or gotten sick from the effects of radiation due to the event. Look at facts, not fear mongers.
