Fukushima farmers describe what it’s like to harvest poisoned food…

“We won’t eat it ourselves, but we sell it.”
And they are encouraged to do so! And they won’t be able to feed their families if they don’t. It’s a tragedy all around.
Comment by David Bear on this video and its transcript:
“In the agricultural policy managed by the Ministry of Agriculture, it is a priority to dispel the harmful rumor about Fukushima produce.”
The above quote is from within the transcript (below). It clearly demonstrates the International Atomic Energy Agency‘s agenda: to dispel the ‘harmful rumors’ about contaminated agriculture. And here’s how it’s done.
First, you define the level of contamination which is “acceptable” (this is based on the International Council of Radiation Protection [ICRP]; these are the guys who did the radiological studies after Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 and 1946 and they created the standards of “acceptable” radiation exposures based on those studies. It is important that you understand this, because DNA wasn’t discovered until 1952 (Watson & Crick) and radiological damage to DNA is much more subtle and happens at much lower levels of exposure. It is also important to understand that the ICRP has so far refused to adjust their “acceptable” limits to include considerations for damage to DNA).
Second, you do some generalized surveys, take the average readings and round them off (round them down to the next lowest number) and define that as the “limit” (this does not take into account actual levels of contamination at any particular location). (Of course, you say that any levels of contamination above that “limit” is a problem which will be studied and addressed.)
Third, you define the ‘perceived problem’ as a ‘rumor.’
Fourth, you back it up by saying that the concentration of contamination (i.e., the ‘rumor’, is below the “acceptable” limits.
And here is the transcript [see link]:

This video is Ace Hoffman’s description of spent fuel hazards (~30minutes).
Critics say Japan’s government is engaged in a vast, duplicitous and fruitless campaign to decontaminate Fukushima Prefecture: here.
IN BRITAIN and Europe, we are being poisoned. The hijacking of food and food safety puts us all at risk: here.

Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
Beware of food coming from Fukishima …..
Indeed! Thanks for reblogging, Horty!
Anytime … 🙂
Damn, I knew this was going to happen. Just unbelievable and unconscienable! Natalie
Indeed. It is not just very wrong that the farmers’ harvests are contaminated; but that the government and “the market” pressure the farmers to sell that poisoned food as well.
There you go! It’s that damn greed factor again! In one of his books Hemingway said the old thing that could ruin a perfect day, was a human being. I think he was right. Blessings, Natalie
Yes, the Japanese food export firms and government want to sell radioactive food to Bahrain. And the Bahrain royals say OK:
Of course they do. Life is all about money, isn’t?! Life’s not bad enough over there that they do this? Makes me sick to my stomach. Natalie
