According to a new study by Nature Communications, a majority of American honey features traces of radioactivity that could be harmful in large amounts. The study notes the radioactive property of the sweet substance is a result of nuclear tests conducted in the 1950s and 1970s throughout the United States.
Looking at samples from hives and soil segments across the Eastern United States, researchers found the radioactive isotope cesium-137 in 68 of the 122 samples collected. cesium-137 is just one of the byproducts created during the nuclear fission of uranium-235 and other fissionable isotopes in nuclear reactors and nuclear weapons. The study goes on to note that due to the arms race during the cold war, radioactive isotopes can be found in almost every continent and ocean on Earth.
