Rush Transcript Excerpt
Koide: There is no such thing as clean food.
The Fukushima accident has happened and a tremendous amount of radiation has already been released and spread throughout the planet.
That’s why there is no longer any such thing as clean and safe food… our only choice is whether we accept that or not.
I do have one proposal:
… the people who advanced nuclear power be made to eat the extremely contaminated food.
People like the managing director of Tepco, or members of the parliament… academics who promoted nuclear power.
I’d like to build a system that feeds them with contaminated food.
But that’s not enough. I also have a proposal that the relatively contaminated food be feed to the adults that have accepted the nuclear power industry and the relatively uncontaminated food be fed to the children.
