Polar bears may suffer radiation poisoning in Beaufort Sea (American Arctic)

Some 27% (9/33) of polar bears captured by researchers in Beaufort Sea suffer symptoms of a mysterious illness that fits perfectly with radiation poisoning such as hair loss.

These same symptoms have been found in seals and walruses since months ago further south in the Pacific coasts of Alaska. 

A virus has been discarded as cause. It's probable that the bears have been poisoned from eating walruses and seals who were contaminated by Fukushima radiation near Alaska or Chukotka.
