Radioactive contamination of drinking water, dairy products, and food in the US during nuclear bomb tests in the 40’s and 50’s was said to cause birth defects and and long lingering illnesses throughout the US population. The Fukushima disaster is far worse than that period of nuclear bomb testing. That being said, how is the radiation being leaked from the Fukushima plant effecting human health today? Radioactive isotopes, when ingested, release beta and gamma rays directly into the body’s cells. This damages cells and triggers cancer.
Leuren Moret, geoscientist, will be our guest on Food Integrity Now on Wednesday, May 25 at 2:00pm(MDT) to discuss the Fukushima Disaster. With all the widespread radioactive food contamination in the United States, what can we do? What foods are most effected? Do we need to be taking potassium iodine? If so, why is the EPA not advising us to do so? Why were Chernobyl contaminated food products sold covertly in US junk foods and cheeses? These questions and more will be answered by Leuren Moret. This is a critical global issue that effects all of us. Don’t miss this important show. Listen Live!
