Look at CA, and ID. Guess what Idaho is famous for?Wiki
Gross state product for 2004 was US$43.6 billion. The per capita income for 2004 was US$26,881. Idaho is an important agricultural state, producing nearly one-third of the potatoes grown in the United States. All three varieties of wheat, Dark Northern Spring, Hard Red and Soft White are grown in the state. Nez Perce County is considered a premier Soft White growing locale.
California remained the No. 1 state in cash farm receipts in 2009, with its $34.8 billion in revenue representing 12.3 percent of the U.S. total. The state accounted for 16.5 percent of national receipts for crops, and 6.5 percent of the U.S. revenue for livestock and livestock products.
California’s agricultural abundance includes more than 400 commodities. The state produces nearly half of U.S.-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables. Across the nation, U.S. consumers regularly purchase several crops produced solely in California.
In 2009, 81,500 farms operated in California, less than 4 percent of the national total. More than 23 percent of California farms produced commodity sales totaling $100,000, compared with 17 percent for the U.S. as a whole. During 2009, California lands devoted to farming and ranching totaled 25.4 million acres, unchanged from 2008. Both the California and U.S. average farm size remained steady from the previous year at 312 and 418 acres, respectively.
Hey I'm ignorant about heart surgery and not ashamed to admit it. We're all ignorant about something. I was licensed to handle radioactive materials so that's one topic I'm not ignorant about.

There was concern over the radiation levels in California. So, as someone who eats produce from CA, I wanted to know whether anyone here is eating or not eating produce. If you are, have you had any unusual reaction? If you have not, I'd like to hear that too.
If this is an ignorant question for some reason or another, sorry.
The people that might be "doomed" are most likely to be just outside the evacuation zone in Japan where it's still pretty "hot" but they aren't evacuating. And by "doomed" they aren't all gonna die, most will live, they are just more at risk than the rest of us.

I'm in Australia too?! Should I be scared?
Oh no, are we doomed too??
I haven't cut back on milk, though I did put my milk in the freezer for a month before drinking it after the accident, so the radioactive iodine could dissipate. It only has a half-life of 8 days.

But I tell you, I've definitely cut down on my milk and fish.
Why just Tuna? But yeah, any fish from the pacific ocean right now is a question mark. We don't know how much radioactivity leaked into the Ocean. Fortunately the Pacific Ocean is huge.

Where I live they asked us to avoid eating tuna if possible, due to possible contamination.
