CNN twists radiation reporting too…

CNN just announced: Sea radiation 1,250 times normal: (see below image of why that is deceptive) : The normal level for radioactive Iodine-131 is ZERO.  It is not an isotope that occurs naturally in nature.  Even if trace amounts left from other nuclear leaks and tests would be considered the “normal”, we’re probably looking at millions of times normal levels.

“1,250 times normal” doesn’t refer to normal levels, it refers to the MAXIMUM limit allowed for Iodium-131 in water, although it wasn’t clear if this is in reference to the maximum limit set for adults (300 Bq/l) or for infants (100 Bq/l).
