    NOTICE:
    Fukushima radiation taints US milk supplies at levels 300% higher than EPA maximums - 4/11/ 2011
    Learn more: www.naturalnews.com/032048_radiation_milk.html

    (NaturalNews) The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) continues to release new data showing that various milk and water supply
     samples from across the US are testing increasingly high for radioactive elements such as Iodine-131, Cesium-134, and Cesium-137, all of which
    are being emitted from the ongoing Fukushima Daiichia nuclear fallout. As of April 10, 2011, 23 US water supplies have tested positive for
    radioactive Iodine-131 (http://opendata.socrata.com/w/4ig7-...), and worst of all, milk samples from at least three US locations have tested positive for
    Iodine-131 at levels exceeding EPA maximum containment levels.
    (See other articles about the radiation dangers and the Truth about what's happening in Japan.)
