Local Food Thrives Amidst Japanese Radiation Fears

For Japanese shoppers, food safety was taken for granted until the Fukushima crisis. Now many have lost faith in government guarantees and fear that radiation could have contaminated their diet.

Cleaning up Fukushima Still Dangerous

I'm sorry, but did I miss something? What does the title of the post have to do with the video?

Ok, so Mit and Berny can go move in next door to a nuclear facility and see how they enjoy that. GL, guys!

There's dying and then there's months/years of sickness and wasting away due to slow poisoning. It is pointless to pull out statistics like how many highway deaths occur. These kinds of statistics are not the point. We are all going to die - eventually. In the meantime its important to try and create a healthy world by not building nuclear plants, weapons. And raising food in uncontaminated areas.

Not quite true, Hartson. It won't take 250,000 years. If it did, Nagasaki wouldn't have been rebuilt as the Fat Boy bomb was a Plutonium device. By the way only PU-239 has that half life (24100 yrs). Other isotopes of PU range from 14 years to 80 million. Plutonium is the heaviest element to exist in nature. Yes primordial Plutonium does exist in trace amounts on Earth.

I have to agree with Berny. Many more people will have died as a result of the tidal waves than will have died from the radiation.
