Norwegian scientists are concerned that this fall in the carcasses of deer and other herbivores found unusually high levels of the radioactive isotope cesium-137. The concentration of the isotope is 5 times higher than, for example, 2 years ago, and is comparable to that observed 30 years ago after the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

As the reason scientists call a bumper crop of fungi that feed on the Norwegian reindeer. It is well known that mushrooms perfectly absorb all kinds of pollution in their places of growth and capable of transmitting the contaminants to those who eat them. The mechanism of penetration of the radioactive isotope cesium-137 in reindeer carcasses installed, but where did the isotope in the soil?
Chernobyl his appearance hardly explain it, because it happened in 1986. Since then, radioactivity had already come back to normal, and no reason to make it worse, scientists do not trace. In addition, the half-life of Cs-137 is about 30 years.
