Fukushima rice -- now with radioactive cesium

Do you think they'll catch it all before unwitting consumers eat some of it? We don't.

Glow in the dark rice....the next kids' cereal.
And don't forget the Chinese and Indian honey, complete with lead, and all sorts of chemicals in it that has been imported (dumped) into the USA for the last 5 years or so.

At a minimum, it'll probably end up in pet food, livestock feed, and prisons and soup kitchens around the world. Keep an eye on those cargo ships leaving Japan for Africa & Bangladesh and other desperately famished places. Domo arigato, you mf-ers!

... ya'don't say ! ITAF?

it ain't the rice it's the ocean
that makes Mama Earth outta stock

Meanwhile, the AP reports today:

"Even if the worst nuclear accident in 25 years leads to many people developing cancer, we may never find out.

Looking back on those early days of radiation horror, that may sound implausible.

But the ordinary rate of cancer is so high, and our understanding of the effects of radiation exposure so limited, that any increase in cases from the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster may be undetectable."

"But while the Fukushima disaster has faded from world headlines, many Japanese remain concerned about their long-term health. And many don't trust reassurances from government scientists like Yasumura, of the Fukushima survey.

Many consumers worry about the safety of food from Fukushima and surrounding prefectures, although produce and fish found to be above government-set limits for contamination have been barred from the market. For example, mushrooms harvested in and around Fukushima are frequently found to be contaminated and barred from market. Controversy has also erupted around the government's choice of a maximum allowed level for internal radiation exposure from food."
