Avertisment: Una din dou─â conserve de ton are ├«n compozi┼úie pe┼čte contaminat cu Cesiu 137


http://m.digi24.ro/stiri/actualitate/sanatate/avertisment-una-din-doua-conserve-de-ton-are-in-compozitie-peste-contaminat-cu-cesiu-137-783544?__grsc=cookieIsUndef1&__grts=50125876&__grua=01b4c7c4a7dd09098cfb76b75c19ca8e&__grrn=1

╚śtiri Actualitate S─ân─âtate:

Una din dou─â conserve de ton are ├«n compozi┼úie pe┼čte contaminat cu Cesiu 137 26.08.2017 Asocia╚Ťia Pro Consumatori (fost─â Asocia┼úia pentru Protec┼úia Consumatorilor din Rom├ónia – APC Rom├ónia) membr─â a Organiza╚Ťiei Europene a Consumatorilor, a analizat 33 conserve de ton provenite din Thailanda, Filipine, Spania, Ecuador, Cote D Ivoire, Bulgaria, Vietnam, Ghana, Seychelle, Mauritius, Grecia ┼či Italia. Concluziile studiului: 40% din conservele de ton analizate sunt fie etichetate gre╚Öit, fie nu con╚Ťin suficiente informa╚Ťii pentru consumatori. La 2 din 5 conserve de ton nu este men╚Ťionat─â, pe eticheta, zona de pescuit. Femeile ├«ns─ârcinate, persoanele ├«n v├órst─â cu boli cronice ╚Öi copiii trebuie s─â evite consumul de ton (Ton Albacora) ├«n conserv─â din cauza con╚Ťinutului de metale grele (plumb, cadmiu ╚Öi mercur). 64% dintre conservele analizate au ├«n compozi╚Ťie ulei vegetal, dintre care: – la un procent de 15% nu se specific─â tipul de ulei vegetal; – 3% folosesc ulei de rapi╚Ť─â; – 18% folosesc ulei de floarea soarelui; – 15% folosesc ulei de soia. specia de ton folosit─â la fabricarea conservei: – 55% folosesc Katsuwonus pelamis; – 27% nu declar─â specia de ton ; – 15% folosesc Ton Albacora; – 3% folosesc Ton Tonggol; cantitatea de ton din conservele analizate variaz─â ├«ntre 60% ╚Öi 70,5% din cantitatea net─â a conservei. doar 61% dintre produc─âtori declar─â zona de unde a fost pescuit pe╚Ötele, dup─â cum urmeaz─â: “├Än urm─â cu ┼čase ani (11 martie 2011), urmare a dezastrului de la centrala nuclear─â de la Fukushima (Japonia), a avut loc cea mai mare deversare radioactiv─â din istorie. Consider├ónd faptul c─â incidentul a avut loc ├«n imediata apropriere a oceanului Pacific, studiile de specialitate estimeaz─â c─â cel pu┼úin 80% din de┼čeurile rezultate ├«n urma accidentului s-au deversat ├«n apele Pacificului. Reprezint─â radia┼úiile rezultate ├«n urma dezastrului de la Fukushima o problem─â? P─ârerile sunt ├«mp─âr┼úite, ├«ns─â este o certitudine faptul c─â, ├«n fiecare zi, aproximativ 300 de tone de ap─â contaminat─â radioactiv ajunge ├«n apele oceanului Pacific, ├«n prezent neexist├ónd vreo variant─â pentru stoparea acestui flux. ├Än mod direct, s-a estimat c─â a crescut concentra┼úia de Cs 137 (Cesiu 137) cu 2, p├ón─â la 3 ori, ├«nregistr├óndu-se concentra┼úii similare, dac─â nu chiar mai mari dec├ót cele de la Cernob├«l. ├Än mod indirect, contaminarea radioactiv─â are un impact semnificativ asupra m─ârfurilor provenite din zona afectat─â (Asia, Oceania, Australia ┼či America de Nord), printre acestea reg─âsindu-se si produsele alimentare. Produsele alimentare, ├«n spe┼ú─â conservele de pe┼čte (ton), uleiul de pe┼čte, produsele semi-preparate din pe┼čte, toate prezint─â, conform m─âsur─âtorilor efectuate, o radioactivitate sporit─â, acesta fiind ┼či motivul pentru care aceste produse sunt v├óndute, uneori, la un pre┼ú redus pe rafturile magazinelor de tip supermarket”, a transmis asocia┼úia. Cum alege┼úi conserva de ton “La alegerea unei conserve de ton trebuie s─â se aib─â ├«n vedere con╚Ťinutul de ton din conserv─â, cantitatea de proteine, de gr─âsimi ┼či de sare la 100 grame produs. Un alt aspect important ├«l reprezint─â ┼či locul unde a fost pescuit pe┼čtele ├«ntruc├ót cel capturat ├«n Oceanul Pacific este iradiat cu Cesiu 137 ├«n urma accidentului nuclear de la Fukushima din anul 2011. Din p─âcate, ingerarea unui aliment radioactiv este cea mai grav─â form─â de poluare, iradierea ├«n acest caz fiind de 20 de ori mai mare dec├ót iradierea exterioar─â a corpului ├«n acelea┼či condi┼úii privind cantitatea de element radioactiv. Recomand consumatorilor s─â evite conservele de ton care au ├«n compozi┼úie pe┼čte capturat ├«n Oceanul Pacific, respectiv din urm─âtoarele zone: FAO 61, 67, 71, 77, 81, 87 ┼či 88. De asemenea, consumatorii nu trebuie s─â achizi╚Ťioneze conservele de ton care au ambalajul bombat, lovit, cu puncte sau pete de rugin─â, acestea reprezent├ónd un adev─ârat pericol pentru s─ân─âtatea lor”, a precizat Costel Stanciu, pre╚Öedinte APC.

The head of the first counterfeiting operation
Alfred Naujocks
Operation Bernhard was an exercise by Nazi Germany to forge British bank notes. The initial plan was to drop the notes over Britain to bring about a collapse of the economy, but the operation was closed in early 1942 after its head, Alfred Naujocks (pictured), fell out of favour with his superior officer, Reinhard Heydrich. It was reopened in July as a counterfeiting operation to finance German intelligence operations. Prisoners were sent to Sachsenhausen concentration camp to work under SS Major Bernhard Kr├╝ger, producing British notes until mid-1945 worth between ┬ú130 and ┬ú300 million. Counterfeit notes from the operation were used to pay the Turkish agent Elyesa BaznaÔÇöcode-named CiceroÔÇöfor his work in obtaining secrets from the British ambassador in Ankara, Turkey. Another ┬ú100,000 helped to free the Italian leader Benito Mussolini in the Gran Sasso raid in September 1943. The operation was dramatised in a 1981 BBC comedy-drama miniseries, Private Schulz, and in a 2007 Austrian film, The Counterfeiters. <a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page?wprov=sfla1“>(Full article…)

Today’s Holiday:
Paryushana (Paryushan Parva)

Like most other Jaina festivals, the Paryushana festival is observed by focusing on the 10 cardinal virtues: forgiveness, charity, simplicity, contentment, truthfulness, self-restraint, fasting, detachment, humility, and continence. Believers ask those whom they may have offended to forgive them, and friendships that have lapsed during the year are restored. The Paryushana festival is observed all over India in the month of Bhadrapada (August-September). More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Today’s Birthday: Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, AKA Mother Teresa (1910)


Today’s Birthday:
Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, AKA Mother Teresa (1910)

In 1927, 17-year-old Agnes Bojaxhiu left her native Macedonia and became a Catholic nun in India, changing her name to Teresa. She never saw her family again. Her decades of devoted charity to the poor earned her global recognition and a 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. Though she was a prominent religious figure, she suffered from a crisis of faith that lasted decades. Since her death in 1997, she has rapidly progressed toward being declared a saint. Why was an exorcism once performed on Mother Teresa? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

This Day in History:
Bomb Delivered to Harvey’s Resort Hotel (1980)

After losing a substantial amount of money gambling at Harvey’s Resort Hotel in Stateline, Nevada, John Birges devised a plan to recoup his losses. On August 26, 1980, he planted a bomb containing nearly 1,000 pounds (453 kg) of dynamite at the casino. His attempt to extort millions of dollars failed, but so did efforts to disarm his sophisticated, tamper-proof bomb. The resulting explosion destroyed much of the casino on August 27. No one was injured. How did experts try to disarm the bomb? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

The Batavia

Though the shipwreck of the Batavia, a Dutch East India Company ship that ran aground on its maiden voyage in 1628, was fairly uneventful, the mutiny and massacre that took place among its survivors earned the Batavia a lasting place in history. While stranded on islands near the Western Australian coast, several mutineers persuaded their followers to kill 125 people as part of a plot to hijack the rescue ship they hoped would find them.
