The Chernobyl nuclear disaster released radiation and the trees in the area absorbed it.
When there was that forest fire near Chernobyl in Russia.....it re-released radiation around the entire planet. Geiger counters worldwide recorded a spike in radiation during those forest fires.
Hawaii received fallout from Japan's nuclear reactors going critical. The SugarCane absorbed the radiation. When they burn the SugerCane....they are re-releasing radiation.
Get a gas mask.

Thanks for the link which I enjoyed - very informative. Just read every word of print on my C&H pure Sugar Cane Box. It does have a label, highlighted in yellow that says '100% Pure Cane - contains NO BEET sugar.' However, the box no longer says 'from Hawaii' and the distributor is Domino Foods, Inc. out of Yonkers, N.Y. and the customer service address in case of dissatisfaction is in Crockett, CA. I couldn't find any indication of where it was grown or where it was processed. These days unless it says 'made in the U.S.A.' it's usually not. I think it has to say China if it is but it doesn't say that either.
I don't know how sugar cane propogates but I do know about corn. The wind blows and the genetically altered pollen can travel quite a ways to infect non-GMO fields. I remember this from people growing blue corn around me and how I was told that my corn could also become that type by proximity.
Also when the OP talks about dust blowing etc. - where's the rainfall? I remember learing about Kauaii and the center of that island having the most yearly rainfall of anywhere on earth. I haven't been to the other islands but wouldn't they be somewhat similar. I do remember that at one end of Kauaii it looked all mined out and there was a problem with rain there - somehow the rain missed it and landed further on but this was kind of a canyon area - no crops.

I mentioned aluminum in the ground because this is a Monsanto endeavor - aluminum resistant plants. A lot of states have strict laws covering aluminum factories and their pollution of the environment but maybe in Hawaii they are not so strict - I don't know. I do know that a state - Oregon - with some of the strictest laws on aluminum pollution dating back to the 1950's and 1960's has a problem with aluminum in the soil. It doesn't spontaneously materialize topside. It gets there by being put there. As far as aluminum resistant plants being researched 100 years ago - I don't know anything about that BUT I'm against it whether 100 years ago or this very moment. I'm against GMO's of any kind if that was even slightly unclear before. I don't want to eat aluminum resistant plants nor do I want aluminum resistant flowers in my garden.
As far as aluminum coming out of the ground - so does arsenic. New Mexico has a big problem with arsenic in the water. Should we then develop arsenic resistant plants? Give me a break. Like I said, there are strict rules for aluminum factory type places to avoid polluting the environment with aluminum so whether or not it comes out of the ground is irrelevant.
