  • Wow, big berries.

    But seriously, my leafy greens are 1.5-2X bacground gamma, and I'm a long way from there.

    I think in the next few years these numbers will look great. Radiation levels will have climbed so much higher that people will wonder how we could get back to these levels.

    Surprised? No one should be as the contamination spread is far beyond what anyone can know.
