Cesium Still Being Found In US West Coast Milk Supply

The numbers are somewhat low but radioactive cesium 137 and 134 are still being found in store bought milk in California.

An individual drinking the milk at the rate of 1 gallon a week would receive an internal dose of 1 microsievert per year. Berkeley incorrectly compares and
internal dose to an external dose of an air plane flight or background environmental radiation, both of those are external exposure and much less damaging in nature.

Cesium 137 has a half life of 30 years. As long as cows continue to be exposed to this excess radioactive cesium in their environment there will continue to be some contaminated
milk in that area. This should be enough of a concern for the EPA to do additional milk testing in other areas of the US known to have received higher concentrations of fallout from
Fukushima.
