rice_radiation-263x164by Christina Sarich / NaturalSociety.com / August 31, 2014

Just recently, farmers in the city of Tamura, Fukushima Prefecture, have begun planting rice in a district previously designated as a ‘no-plant zone’ due to of radioactive fallout. This will be the first time since March, 2011’s core meltdowns that rice intended for public sale will be planted in fields that are possibly still contaminated with radioactive cesium and other toxic materials.

While the Japanese public is vehemently opposed to GMO, do they really want to eat radioactive rice? The government of Japan seems not to care.

Despite the urging of the people of Japan, the government continues to allow farming in radioactive areas while also permitting large quantities of imported GM canola from Canada. There is also now GM canola growing wild around Japanese ports and roads to major food oil companies.

Genetically modified canola such as Monsanto’s RoundUp Ready canola has been found growing around these ports when being tested for GM contamination. Japan was also recently duped into accepting Monsanto’s GM soybeans. Does this country really need any more toxic food?

In other news, animals and people living near the Fukushima radiation are suffering. Wild monkeys that reside in a forest near Fukushima are now showing alarming changes in their blood composition. This doesn’t bode well for humans who were exposed to radiation from within several hundred kilometers of the Daiichi site.

Just weeks ago, two Japanese farmers whose livelihoods are in ruins due to the 2011 nuclear disaster staged a protest at Tokyo’s agriculture ministry, scuffling briefly with police as they unsuccessfully tried to unload a bull from a truck.

Masami Yoshizawa and fellow farmer Naoto Matsumura have remained at their farms to care for their own and others’ abandoned livestock in areas where access has been restricted due to radiation fears since the March, 2011 meltdowns at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant. The livestock they brought with them for the protest had developed unexplainable white spots on their coats. The farmers believe it is due to radioactive fallout.

Thousands of farmers lost their livelihoods when their farms, produce, and livestock were declared off-limits and unsafe, but allowing radioactive farms to plant now doesn’t solve the problem, and neither do genetically modified foods. It seems the corporate biotech bullies won’t stop their own agricultural terrorism, even when a country is down on their luck.

  1. Come on, People of Japan….. ENOUGH!
    Have you all gone insane???
    Don’t let this happen. DON’T DO IT.
    What would your ancestors say? What will you tell your children (assuming there are any)??
    Just Say NO.
    Say NO to GMO and NO to growing, eating and selling radioactive food.
    If you don’t stop this insanity, then Japan really is well and truly finished.
    The final SAYONARA 🙁

  2. I truly feel in my heart of hearts, that it is too late to save most of what has already been affected. In 5 to 10 years we will hear about how very wrong we are. Look at Fallujah, and those poor babies, born with rare cancers.. (US tested weapons that used “depleted” uranium.) This accident is 10 fold worse
    and when the true scope of what has happend comes to light..
    It will be FAR TOO LATE FOR MAN.

  3. Allowing rice or any crops to be grown in the Fukushima area is a huge mistake being that the radiation has eaten through its concrete containment and is now polluting the aqua fir and ground water for miles and miles! TEPCO has lied to the people of Japan and to the world about the true levels of radiation released into the atmosphere, ground and into the Pacific Ocean! TEPCO also continues to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean nonstop every single day to contaminate the fish, ocean life and animals. There is now verified proof of DNA damage and mutations throughout the food chain and we humans are next to suffer! Experts recommend to commence detoxing with the natural mineral called zeolite that is proven to safely remove both radiation and heavy metals from the human body.This MUST Be Done to help prevent DNA damage that will cause disease and future ongoing mutations! For more quality information do an online search for the single word Zeolite.

  4. the japanese are famous for their appreciation of ancient wisdom , trouble is they are not using the wisdom from other great masters…..example,,,AS YE SOW,SO SHALL YE REAP,,,,,

    • Maybe so Paul.
      You know the Japanese have a “thing” about radioactivity.
      It started after we dropped two atomic bombs on
      a half a million defenseless women and children.
      You think they may thought about revenge too much?
      Or did they fall into a hole they were digging for others.
      I think it was our Man who said, “if you live by the
      sword, you die by the sword.”
      Or was it, “the things I feared most have come upon me.”
      If only we knew?
