This video from Japan says about itself:

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

3 September 2013

“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.

From Kyodo news agency in Japan:

Japan asks China to ease food import restrictions introduced after Fukushima nuclear disaster

China banned imports of food produced in 10 prefectures in Japan including Miyagi, Nagano and Fukushima following the crisis

A Japanese farm ministry official met a senior Chinese official in charge of food inspection on Friday to request the easing of restrictions on food imports introduced after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011, sources said.

A director general at the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries used the meeting in Beijing to stress the safety of Japanese food, the sources said.

China banned imports of food produced in 10 prefectures in Japan including Miyagi, Nagano and Fukushima following the nuclear crisis.

The beginning of such talks reflects an improvement in relations between the two biggest Asian economies.

Ties had deteriorated after the Japanese government bought a major part of the Japanese-administered Diaoyu Islands – known as Senkaku in Japan – in the East China Sea, from a private Japanese owner in 2012. The islands are claimed by China.

Both countries’ leaders have met twice since November, indicating a thaw in their tense relations.

The sale and use of Japanese food products has dropped sharply at department stores, supermarkets and restaurants in China since the import ban went into effect.
