Radioactive Iodine found in Finland tracked back to isotope manufacturer in Budapest

The Finnish radiation watchdog detected trace amounts of airborne radioactive iodine last month. Authorities say the levels are too low to be a health concern but have since traced the source back to an isotope manufacturer in Budapest, reported Finland’s YLE Thursday.

  1. This is heartening news! The fact that these rogue isotopes are now traceable to their origins will finally give rise to ACCOUNTABILITY. No more free license for nuclear plant operators to pollute at will. Imagine the implications…And all I can say is, it is ABOUT TIME. And if our governments refuse to hold them accountable, then we, the people, will. We can create petitions to put new laws on the ballots and with our votes, remove from office anyone who stands in our way.
