1. Are they monitoring the levels of radiation in the green tea leaves they export?

Anyone know?

2. What do the liquefaction videos have to do with anything?

Liquefaction is a common phenomenon during earthquakes and has nothing to do with radiation.

The first video is from Urayasu, a city outside Tokyo on Tokyo Bay, i.e. the ocean and on the day of the actual big earthquake.

The third one looks more like a broken water main.

The fourth one is from the same location as the first, and it shows the aftermath. As the video captioning says, much of Urayasu is built on landfill.

8. They are always impressive

there are a few of the great Alaska quake too.

And liquefaction has zero to do with radiation... by the way.

24. Saltwater liquefication might be carrying escaped radioactive particles

from the melt down of one reactor core. We were told that the one meltdown and other core melts (not melt downs) were hours later after the initial big earthquake. Salt water was use to cool the reactors after they lost their, "heavy water". This all drained into the ocean. Days later the particles were in the ocean water. We did not receive any information about radioactive particle being in the surface liquefied water of the big quake. What was in the water used to grow these food items pictured above? How deep are water wells around this area? Did atmospheric radioactive particle cause mutation or polyploidy during blooming and fertilization of the food items shown above? Did heavier saltwater with its components, backwash into the water table? Can someone post a scientific study with findings?

25. Liquification happened as the quake happened

Your more correct answer is if the water went down into newly formed cracks after the quake...

Not sure what we're supposed to be afraid of.

11. The fish, at least, has nothing to do with Fukushima

It appears to be from Wyoming, caught in 2005.

Though I'm sure the broader point is right: there will be mutations. Many will not be as spectacular as extra organs and such, but simply lethal.

20. As far as I can tell, all of them are frauds.

Check the metadata on those photos: some of them were taken more than a year ago. This is nothing more than fearmongering.

21. The clover mutations seem to be real

At least, they are on the Fukushima website. That being said, they are not the first clover mutations, nor even the most spectacular found in Japan.

19. The website linked,

http://fukushima-diary.com

Only has the pictures of the mint and clover, not the fish or the fruits and vegetables.

22. Relevant information for this, though, would be how much these incidents

happened before the radioactive leak. I'm not doubting it, but would like to see some kind of statistic like that.

26. Lookup heirloom tomatoes

What most people think of as a tomato is a fairly new phenomenon. I see tomatos like some of these all the time.

see, I did plural tomato both ways, just to please you, Mr. Quail.

28. I would remain skeptical of such claims until there is hard data on where they came from and why...

What is the normal mutation rate? What is the source of these?
