Rice Tomatoes Spinach & Radioactive Cesium

How do you like your tomatoes and spinach in the new nuclear world? Flavoured with cesium 137 or would you prefer radioactive iodine? Well, if you are not a farmer, how about nuclear contaminated seafood? Long-life cesium top threat to seafood. Who is going to measure (and pay for) the 'nuclear footprint'?

One easy way to wreck an economy: Nuclear plant reactor meltdown.

The NewYork Times has an article about the historical as well as social and agricultural cost of the Fukushima Daiiachi disaster. "Farmers’ Livelihoods Wither in Japan’s Nuclear Crisis"

TOWA, Japan — If Japan’s leaders regard the collapse of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex as this nation’s greatest crisis in decades, Saichi Sato has a different perspective. From where he sits in this leafy village of 8,000 about 25 miles from Daiichi, he says, this is the greatest crisis in 400 years.

Can you believe that the elite are so addicted to their nuclear reactors that food contamination is viewed as 'no big deal' .. don't worry .. we will get over it in half a million plutonium years. Maybe they have food and water stored for themselves underground? They seem not to care. Who knows? I am sure Murphy's Law will not allow them to escape so easily ...

The NewYork Times reported...
At least one farmer has been pushed over the edge.

The newspaper The Asahi Shimbun reported last week that a 64-year-old farmer in Sukagawa, a city in Fukushima, killed himself one day after the government imposed a ban on the sale of cabbages from the prefecture.

The farmer, who was not identified, was reported to have lost his house in the earthquake but had a field of 7,500 organically grown cabbages ready for harvest when the prohibition was announced.

“Vegetables in Fukushima are finished,” his son quoted him as saying.

It's really sad...
