Avertisment: Una din două conserve de ton are în compoziţie peşte contaminat cu Cesiu 137

Știri Actualitate Sănătate:

Una din două conserve de ton are în compoziţie peşte contaminat cu Cesiu 137 26.08.2017 Asociația Pro Consumatori (fostă Asociaţia pentru Protecţia Consumatorilor din România – APC România) membră a Organizației Europene a Consumatorilor, a analizat 33 conserve de ton provenite din Thailanda, Filipine, Spania, Ecuador, Cote D Ivoire, Bulgaria, Vietnam, Ghana, Seychelle, Mauritius, Grecia şi Italia. Concluziile studiului: 40% din conservele de ton analizate sunt fie etichetate greșit, fie nu conțin suficiente informații pentru consumatori. La 2 din 5 conserve de ton nu este menționată, pe eticheta, zona de pescuit. Femeile însărcinate, persoanele în vârstă cu boli cronice și copiii trebuie să evite consumul de ton (Ton Albacora) în conservă din cauza conținutului de metale grele (plumb, cadmiu și mercur). 64% dintre conservele analizate au în compoziție ulei vegetal, dintre care: – la un procent de 15% nu se specifică tipul de ulei vegetal; – 3% folosesc ulei de rapiță; – 18% folosesc ulei de floarea soarelui; – 15% folosesc ulei de soia. specia de ton folosită la fabricarea conservei: – 55% folosesc Katsuwonus pelamis; – 27% nu declară specia de ton ; – 15% folosesc Ton Albacora; – 3% folosesc Ton Tonggol; cantitatea de ton din conservele analizate variază între 60% și 70,5% din cantitatea netă a conservei. doar 61% dintre producători declară zona de unde a fost pescuit peștele, după cum urmează: “În urmă cu şase ani (11 martie 2011), urmare a dezastrului de la centrala nucleară de la Fukushima (Japonia), a avut loc cea mai mare deversare radioactivă din istorie. Considerând faptul că incidentul a avut loc în imediata apropriere a oceanului Pacific, studiile de specialitate estimează că cel puţin 80% din deşeurile rezultate în urma accidentului s-au deversat în apele Pacificului. Reprezintă radiaţiile rezultate în urma dezastrului de la Fukushima o problemă? Părerile sunt împărţite, însă este o certitudine faptul că, în fiecare zi, aproximativ 300 de tone de apă contaminată radioactiv ajunge în apele oceanului Pacific, în prezent neexistând vreo variantă pentru stoparea acestui flux. În mod direct, s-a estimat că a crescut concentraţia de Cs 137 (Cesiu 137) cu 2, până la 3 ori, înregistrându-se concentraţii similare, dacă nu chiar mai mari decât cele de la Cernobîl. În mod indirect, contaminarea radioactivă are un impact semnificativ asupra mărfurilor provenite din zona afectată (Asia, Oceania, Australia şi America de Nord), printre acestea regăsindu-se si produsele alimentare. Produsele alimentare, în speţă conservele de peşte (ton), uleiul de peşte, produsele semi-preparate din peşte, toate prezintă, conform măsurătorilor efectuate, o radioactivitate sporită, acesta fiind şi motivul pentru care aceste produse sunt vândute, uneori, la un preţ redus pe rafturile magazinelor de tip supermarket”, a transmis asociaţia. Cum alegeţi conserva de ton “La alegerea unei conserve de ton trebuie să se aibă în vedere conținutul de ton din conservă, cantitatea de proteine, de grăsimi şi de sare la 100 grame produs. Un alt aspect important îl reprezintă şi locul unde a fost pescuit peştele întrucât cel capturat în Oceanul Pacific este iradiat cu Cesiu 137 în urma accidentului nuclear de la Fukushima din anul 2011. Din păcate, ingerarea unui aliment radioactiv este cea mai gravă formă de poluare, iradierea în acest caz fiind de 20 de ori mai mare decât iradierea exterioară a corpului în aceleaşi condiţii privind cantitatea de element radioactiv. Recomand consumatorilor să evite conservele de ton care au în compoziţie peşte capturat în Oceanul Pacific, respectiv din următoarele zone: FAO 61, 67, 71, 77, 81, 87 şi 88. De asemenea, consumatorii nu trebuie să achiziționeze conservele de ton care au ambalajul bombat, lovit, cu puncte sau pete de rugină, acestea reprezentând un adevărat pericol pentru sănătatea lor”, a precizat Costel Stanciu, președinte 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 Krüger, producing British notes until mid-1945 worth between £130 and £300 million. Counterfeit notes from the operation were used to pay the Turkish agent Elyesa Bazna—code-named Cicero—for his work in obtaining secrets from the British ambassador in Ankara, Turkey. Another £100,000 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.
