Study: Your Wine Might Contain Radioactive Particles

You know drinking too much alcohol can be bad for your health, but a recent study has found that your wine might be radioactive, which is another health issue entirely. According to a report published in the New York Times, California wines made after 2011 could contain radioactive particles as a result of the Fukushima disaster in Japan. For the study, a group of French scientists tested 18 bottles of California rose and cabernet sauvignon from 2009 onward and found increased levels of radioactive particles in the win produced after 2011. Fortunately, the levels of the stuff found in the wines aren’t harmful, according to the World Health Organization. Michael Pravikoff, a physicist who worked on the study said, “These levels are so low, way below the natural radioactivity that’s everywhere in the world
