Report: Worst vegetable mutation — Harvested north of Tokyo in June

Report: Worst vegetable mutation — Harvested north of Tokyo in June

Published: January 5th, 2012 at 12:54 PM EDT | By Enenews Admin



IAEA: “An increased mutation level was apparent in 1987 abnormalities include unusual branching of stems abnormal colour and size of leaves and flowers, and development of ‘witches’ brooms’ in pine trees.”

US EPA: Chernobyl Environmental Impact – “Radiation stress has caused changes in tree growth patterns, such as this formation of “witch’s broom,” a condition in which too many shoots form on a bough.”

Chernobyl biologist: “All the trees are clearly mutated.” They’ve lost the internal signals that make a Christmas tree taper toward the top. Instead, he says, “they don’t seem to know which way is up.”

4. Your hotlinked images from fukushima-diary.com aren't showing up.

edit: and by "not showing up", I mean they're replaced with images saying no hotlinking allowed.

5. For clarification

The farmer in the picture is not holding potatoes, but Chinese yams (the translator mistranslated 長芋 as "potato"). While the Japanese have developed varieties that grow long and straight, there are occasional deformities resulting from, for example, adding too much fertilizer. Incidentally, Chinese yam is considered an invasive species in the United States

7. That's really depressing

But I think we do need the occasional reminder that Fukushima hasn't gone away just because nobody in the press is talking about it.
