Fukushima-harvested rice will hit the stores in Britain in July, which might make it the first member of the EU to import the grain, following a sustained effort by a group of Fukushima natives in London fighting rumors about the safety of the crop.

It is also the third nation, after Singapore and Malaysia, to import Fukushima rice since the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami caused three reactor meltdowns at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant. Starting next month, 1.9 tons of Fukushima rice called Ten no Tsubu will be sold in London. A Fukushima branch of National Federation of Agricultural Cooperative Associations, a Japanese farmers group better known as Zen-Noh, will export the rice via a British trading company.

In order to understand how insane the story above is, please see the story below.

The entirety of Fukushima prefecture has been contaminated to where all of it must be declared a radioactivity management area.

What is the British government thinking importing rice from Fukushima prefecture? It seems like every day I come across news stories that have me shaking my head in bewilderment. I'm concerned about what madness is around the corner because things seem to be getting crazier.


But if you want to inquire as to why, as I've mentioned to you, some 2.4 petaBecquerels of radioactive material have fallen on Japan, that material has been dispersed, contaminating Tohoku, Kanto, and western Japan. So in addition to the law setting the legal limit for exposure at 1mSv/yr, there is another law that states that absolutely nothing may be removed from a radioactive management area in which the levels exceed 40,000 Becquerels per square meter.

So the question becomes how many places or how much area has been contaminated beyond 40,000 Bq/m2? And according to the investigations, that answer is 140,000 km2 [54,054 square miles]. The entirety of Fukushima prefecture has been contaminated to where all of it must be declared a radioactivity management area. Indeed, while centered on Fukushima, parts of Chiba and Tokyo have also been contaminated. The number of people living in what must be called a radiation-controlled area is in the millions, and could exceed ten million.

That's flipping great!

So now every time that I want a curry will I need to take a Geiger counter with me?

Oh, don't be silly!

Don't you trust the government?

They'll never lie to you or cause you any harm.

I hope it's labelled. Could be a delicacy for connoisseurs...

Great. And because the MSM has become silent about Fukushima, the majority of people won't bat an eyelid because the majority will assume that it's all been sorted now.

I guess this rice wont be labelled so there will be no choice other than to avoid rice completely just in case. If rice is used as an ingredient in another product then how will this be labelled if at all?

Must be a promotional thing, free cancer with every packet of rice.

Think of the savings, you will not have to buy shampoo when your hair falls out.

Well, if it is radioactive it won't be allowed in. Other than that, apart from being a niche product, if I see some I'll buy it.

According to experts, low levels of radiation in last year’s rice were achieved thanks to the use of fertilizers based on potassium chloride, which stops the grain from absorbing the isotope.

Get over it.

a good site to understand the extent of nuclear materials that were dispersed onto agricultural land and a whole rack of other info regarding the ongoing prompt criticality.

If Fukushima created 300 to 800 cpm in rainwater falling in Peterborough, Ontario, over a period of two years after the event, I can just imagine what organic products have absorbed in the radioactive management areas. The British government will just raise the safe radiation level like the goverments did in North America.

Buy a radiation detector, check all your food. There be monsters....

Huge mistake...I was over there at the docks the other day with my bud who works there....and we walked right by the shipment in the crane area even...And my tallywhacker fell off.....
That's right my wedding tackle, my twiggs and berries....
the rice may be sneaking out in other shipments by other than bulk carry'rs IDK...

Fukuyama is a big place. the irradiated area is nearish the plant..there are people living a few miles away from the plant that tests fine. I wouldn't be too worried about it. Japan may cover up the extent of how bad the plant got, but I dont think they are gonna sell off bad products..that would be a economic disaster for them and they are all about long term investment
