From fiscal year 2012 to 2014, we surveyed the concentration of radioactive cesium in 39 wild animal meats obtained from 20 wild boars and 19 deer caught in Chiba prefecture, using a germanium semiconductor detector. Four wild boar meats in the fiscal years 2012 and 2013 exceeded the radioactive cesium limit in general foods (100 Bq/kg), whereas none of the deer meats exceeded the limit. The left side of the wild boar that showed a radioactive cesium concentration above 100 Bq/kg was divided…

Reduction in the Radiocesium in Meats of the Sika Deer and Wild Boar by Cooking.

The results suggest that some of the radiocesium naturally present in the meats is soluble in water and that the radiOCesium dissolved in water can be removed from the meat with the release of water from the tissue.

[Concentrations of radioactive cesium in different cuts of beef].

The results showed that the concentration of radioactive cesium in muscle was more than 7-fold higher than that in fat in the same cow, suggesting that it is necessary to use muscle for testing of radioactiveCESium in cows.

Distribution of Artificial Radionuclides in Abandoned Cattle in the Evacuation Zone of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant

This study is the first to reveal the detailed systemic distribution of radionuclides in cattle attributed to the FNPP accident, and radiocesium activity concentration in organs was found to be dependent on the feeding conditions and the geographic location of the cattle.
