There are concerns about a potential nuclear ‘incident’ in Europe.
According to reports, small amounts of highly radioactive radioisotope, iodine-131, of unknown origin, have been detected over large areas of Europe.
A nuclear ‘incident’ in the vicinity of the Arctic circle may have spread the mysterious radioactive leak during the past week.
According to IRSN ( Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire ), a French institute specialising in nuclear and radiological risks, Iodine-131 (131I), a radionuclide of anthropogenic origin, has recently been detected in tiny amounts in the ground-level atmosphere in Europe.
Iodine-131 was first detected over large areas of Europe in January.
Since the isotope has a half-life of only eight days, the detection is proof of a rather recent
