Radioactive Milk Testing Results



We followed up our July 2011 test of Organic Valley dried milk by retesting the exact same package for radioactivity. We also tested Mexican NIDO milk to see how it would compare; the results were surprising.

Please support our further testing of all natural grass fed ground beef by using the donate button below. Our previous lab tests of pre-Fukushima ground beef and 4 month post Fukushima ground beef have proven Cesium 137 contamination of American beef.

With your help we can test to see how much more Cesium and other radioactive fallout has contaminated beef that has been feeding on post Fukushima grass now for the majority of its life; please step up and donate if you wish to find out the truth.

A Radioactive Glass Bottom Boat Tour of John Pennekamp Coral Reef

This video is part of our 4000 mile Radioactive Roadtrip field investigation. A two hour timed total count was taken lasting the entirety of a Glass Bottom boat tour off of Key Largo at John Pennekamp state park.

The result was a two hour total of 2322 counts, which averages to 0.0055 mR/hr (standardized to Cs137); this is the lowest average background reading we have encountered.

Butchering Jimmy Buffett with a Radioactive Baseline



This is the first in a series of Radioactive baseline readings taken in key locations of interest during the 4000 mile Radioactive Road trip. Hopefully, the data will never become useful.

The location was Porky's BBQ in Marathon, Florida. A 10 minute reading was taken on 7/22/11, totaling 224 counts. The measurement equates to 0.0064 mR/hr (Inspector Geiger counter)

Baseline Radioactive Test of Pre-Fukushima Organic NonFat Dried Milk

I took two 10 minute readings from a sealed foil package of 12oz Organic NonFat Dry Milk, non-instant Grade A. The date code on the package was 10351BEXP1111, I believe that corresponds to a packaging date of February 4, 2011.

The procedure was as follows
10 minute timed count from the back of the package; 426 total counts.
10 minute timed background count from the table under the package; 329 total counts.
10 minute timed count from the front of the package; 457 total counts.
10 minute timed background count from the table under the package; 351 total counts.

The result is that the PRE-FUKUSHIMA milk radioactivity read 30% above background
The corresponding average reading from the milk container was 0.0126 mR/hr
The corresponding average background reading was 0.0097 mR/hr

I will update with future readings as I start to use more pre-Fukushima dried milk.

6/21/11 Daytime baseline Geiger Counter Reading

Outside,Geiger counter on my belt & in its case, sensor facing away from body: 83.3 minutes, 2324 counts, 0.008mR/hr. The reading is approximately 0.0003 mR/hr greater than typical. The day was mostly cloud, steady wind, 80 degF. The reading ended at 2:35pm approximately 6.5 hours after the morning storms rolled through, and roughly 1 hour before the afternoon storms started.

5/17/11 Daytime Baseline Geiger Counter Reading

The reading was taken outside, with the Geiger counter on my belt & in its case (nerd style), sensor facing away from body: 66.5 minutes, 1839 total counts, 0.0079 mR/hr

4/29/11 Daytime Baseline Geiger Counter Readings

I took a cumulative reading outdoors today from roughly 2pm-3:30pm. The RADALERT Inspector was worn nerd like on my belt, in its case, sensor facing away from the body. This test only measures Beta and Gamma Radiation.

The results:
2285 total counts over a 85 minute period for an equivalent reading of 0.0077 mR/hr.
The result is identical to my 4/8/11 test.

4/8/11 Daytime baseline Geiger Counter Readings

4/8/11 Daytime baseline Geiger Counter Readings

(1) Outside, on my belt & in its case, sensor facing away from body: 90 minutes, 2435 counts, 0.0077mR/hr

(2) Outside, in its case, sensor pointed skyward: 63 minutes, 2360 counts, 0.017 mR/hr

(3) Outside, in its case, sensor pointed at south horizon: 89 minutes, 2626 counts, 0.00843 mR/hr

*because of sensor geometry there is a bias fore and aft of the direction it is pointing.

4/6/11 Good News: No detectable fallout outside

I took cumulative outside readings on the Radalert Inspector for 71 minutes.
It was a warm, windy, partly sunny day.
The unit was worn nerd like inside of its case located on my belt.
The sensor was facing away from my body.
The cumulative reading was 1888 counts.
That averages to 0.0075 mR/hr.

4/2/11: Two bits of good news on the Fallout front

The family took a three and a half hour drive between Saint Louis and Sainte Genevieve MO and back. It was a beautiful sunny day around 70 degF. I had the Radalert turned on in the SUV and set to track cumulative radiation for the trip. The trip averaged an exposure of 0.0109 mR/hr. That is a good background reading.

On another front, I emailed Michael Collins of EnviroReporter.com and asked him if he would take some rain readings in California using the same methodology I used in my video. He quickly emailed me back that he had done so and his readings were normal.
