Radioactive Food: Brazil Nuts

Are Brazil Nuts radioactive? You bet!

I tested a bag of them using gamma spectroscopy and found clear peaks for Radium 226 and Lead 214, as well as probable peaks for Bismuth 214. In the end, the radioactivity of Brazil nuts isn’t something to worry about. In an entire 24 hour period I only few a few hundred gamma rays from each peak. The radioactivity was just too low to be of worry.

Like most nuts, Brazil nuts are quite good for you and typically get a “glowing” review from health care professionals. =)

Japanese Samples Tested using Gamma Spectroscopy — First Results

Recently, a friend of mine sent me a series of samples from all across Japan. He, my friend, lives in Japan and obtained these samples at some personal risk. I have started the process of testing each of the many samples using gamma spectroscopy and other techniques. I will be posting my results for each sample as I test them, which may take time given my busy work schedule.

I have tested an air filter from an AC/heater unit in Saga City, Saga Prefecture (1100 Km south of Fukushima), Japan and a sample from just under a water rain spout in residential housing area (back yard), of a person living in Kashiwa City, Chiba Prefecture (26km NE from Tokyo).

I found Cs134 and Cs137 in the soil sample and I believe that I found Kr85 in the air filter. You can read the details and download my full report from my website. Please review my first report, Sample J-F, and my preliminary details of Sample J-A, which I will fully post soon.

Please keep in mind that these sorts of contaminants are quite expected in Japan. Each sample comes from a few hundred to only 1100 km from Fukushima, so the results are expected.

Hello,

I have been sick for the past week and very busy too! This has stopped my video production. I will restart very soon!

I recently purchased this beautiful Civil Defense version 700, Victoreen Instrument Company, Model six A, Geiger counter from eBay for about $200 dollars.

Many units like it sell for less, but the seller reconditioned the unit and replaced many of the parts. The unit was in great condition and ready for anouther 50 years of use!!!

This is my tribute to Mr Wizard!

Please tell me what you think. I tested five radioactive elements and how you the gamma spectrums of each!
