Chernobyl still hitting shrooms
Helsinki - Finns, who consume on average nearly 1.5kg of wild mushrooms a year, should continue to take precautions when eating some types of fungi because of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster 18 years ago, officials said on Monday.

In April 1986, a nuclear reactor at Ukraine's Chernobyl power plant exploded and spewed equivalent radiation of more than 200 Hiroshima bombs into the air, contaminating large parts of Europe, including southwestern Finland.

Aino Rantavaara, a researcher with the Finnish radiation and nuclear safety authority,said: "There are no mushrooms that people should not eat, but we emphasize that, in some regions, making up just 20% of our total land area, people should still take some precautions when eating certain types."

2. I don't know
but I do know

That one pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you,
Well you know what happens with those.
