Fukushima, 60 km from Fukushima Daiichi

How does radiation affect fruit trees?

Here’s a sample of peach branches and fruit. Black areas indicate the high level of radiation. A large amount of radiation was found on the surface of the branches and fruit in particular.

    Title: Planting The Seeds Of Comeback

    Let's replace chemtrails with tachyon water, until then… got to cover everything up – use enough (non-hot)elements so a plant may transmute accordingly – talk to them, theyre people too and they see(in their own right) through deceit unlike most people instantly

    Why terraform a planet? What lifeforms thrive in these (s)hell(f)ish {sell fish? or selfish?} conditions? Perhaps the fear of invaders has allowed them to take over said minds in fear?

    Being bold and brave used to be cool until unoriginal poser credit takers just couldnt handle the fact that they suck-so taking it out on the rest of us just trying to stress less. No thanks to the Zionist frequency from Mr. Blue brain and shame on all of you no backbone shellfish who sold your brothers off for an unsatisfying buzzing time…those fumes cant be worth it


      would've been nice if you bothered to stay on topic. But I guess any topic in a storm will do.

      I'm beginning to despise these auto-posting systems. Now…how's that not-being-exposed-thing work'n out for ya?

    Interesting that by 8:24 the viewer is thrust into a commercial about the "High quality peaches" of Fukushima.

    Brainwashing 101…
    … Confuse the viewer with contrasting information.

      Food contaminations is going to be an increasing problem. Here is a list of the latest International reports of detections of radioactive isotope contamination in food items. Having a data base of reports can be a great help to everyone, especially mums and dads.

    The peach growers care a hell of a lot more then the TEPCO cronies. The farmers should be commended for their work and dedication trying to do the best they can given the circumstances, but the trees and fruit will probably always be radioactive and will probably kill …

    So, if radiation levels went down in their orchards, then where did the radiation go? It had to have gone somewhere; if using a high-pressure "wash" is enough to get rid of radiation, then it'd be easy to clean up this mess. I can't help but think all that has been done is more spreading of radiation: The farmers just kinda kicked it out of their trees onto other surfaces.

      From: Mainichi Daily News,. Japan October 7, 2011

      “It might make you feel like you’re decontaminating, but there’s a limit to the amount of radioactive cesium that’s caked onto roofs that can be eliminated with high-pressure water cleaners,” says Kunihiro Yamada, a professor of environmental science at Kyoto Seika University. “The water cleaners wash surface dirt off, but then that tainted water goes into sewers and can contaminate rivers, thereby affecting farm goods and seafood. If people in highly populated areas were to begin using water cleaners, we may end up finding people forcing tainted water onto each other.”

  • Check this word usage correlation between nuclear and cancer.

    Interesting for sure, they are highly correlated.


      not saying that there isn't a correlation between the two, stock, but I'm not seeing a true relationship between the distribution of the data points…

    what do they know that we dont?
    is the above advert aimed at them?

    New! -Importation Of Some Food Items From Japan Suspended -Lack of trust? -Brunei Darussalam

    Bandar Seri Begawan – The importation of certain products from Japan has been temporarily suspended by the-government as a precautionary measure to safeguard the public from radioactive contaminants in food originating from the country.

    A press release dated March 29, 2011 from the Ministry of Health (MoH) said the MoH and Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources (MIPR) have continuously monitored, reviewed the situation and obtained further information from regional neighbours and relevant international organisations.

    In this regard, importers and the public have been informed that the importation of certain food categories has been suspended.

    The importation of any meat, seafood, milk and milk products, fruits and vegetables (fresh and processed), tubers including potato and sweet Potato, seaweed and green tea products from Fukushima, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, Saitama, Kanagawa, Tokyo and Chiba Prefectures are temporarily suspended.

    40 percent of the "radiation"… which isotopes??
    spectrometer findings?

      hi paute from your second link

      "….Brunei multiple ministries recently issued a joint announcement, continue to ban the import of Japanese nuclear leak accident areas of food and agricultural products.

      The announcement points out, after more than a year of continuous monitoring and reference from "regional neighbours and relevant international organizations for the latest information,"

      Brunei authorities revised the relevant ban, continue to ban imported from Japan Fukushima 8 counties town such as food and agricultural products.Since the Japanese nuclear leakage, Brunei from March 29th last year to suspend imports from Japan affected areas of food…"

      added emphasis but they are using a different dose standard i suspect?
      or they know you cant evenly guarantee contaminated food blending..?

      great catch! +1000

    Don't know if it's useful information but comparing the two photos up close one can see that the brown sections of those twigs are the parts with the radioactive contamination while the green are not.

  • Trees have DNA too. 🙁

    The DNA damage goes unseen and can can be passed to possible future generations of the species. (no different than butterflies) Not to mention the fact that every PLANT is part of something's ecosystem.

    Wherever that contaminated plant decays and returns back to the earth will then become contaminated. If another plant grows in that spot it will 'uptake' the radioactive contamination. Which may them be eaten by a human being. It a loop. It only moves or spreads and remains HAZARDOUS to life for approximately 10 times the isotopes half-life.

    That's just peachy.

    Nice example of propaganda. It seems to be saying that the desperate and ultimately futile attempts of the victims to salvage what they can of their lives, is reason enough for people to ignore the very real health concerns associated with all foods from this area. As if to say, they (farmers) have earned your (non-farmers) sacrifice.

    The only honest thing in this video is when the farmer says that he wishes the people responsible for the nuclear accident would pay for the “clean-up”. The government of Japan should just buy these farmers out so they can relocate. But, I guess they don’t have any money left after refinancing this year’s whale hunt with reconstruction money.
