I went camping on the weekend and our grill was outside after making Portobello burgers and the grill was in the rain for a while, this was somewhat close to Toronto My wife said she tasted a kerosene like salty taste.
The rain is radioactive almost everywhere

Just curious, did you happen to use any fire starter to get the grill going? Charcoal grill? Portable propane?
Those zippo fire starter blocks (various brands) are actually mostly kerosene and could account for the taste if you didn't let it ash over long enough before cooking. When I use them for campfires I give it a minimum of 30 minutes before i try to cook anything over it.
That said, a metallic salty taste could indeed be radiation exposure.

if there is danger, be assured Japanese people will be the first victims. Until their population suffers a huge pandemic, this is more or less fear mongering. Granted I would like to know how safe things are on the west coast, but to get excited and scared over something I wont know for sure is just added stress that is unnecessary.

and have been telling my friends to stay out of the rain.
Paul Gunter, Beyond Nuclear joins Thom Hartmann. Meanwhile, Japan is not out of the danger zone...in fact the nuclear crisis is getting worse and worse! We've recently learned from Japan that the amount of radiation released was more than 20 times that from the Hiroshima bomb, and now it looks they may be experiencing the early stages of a total China Syndrome meltdown. And is the United States in danger too?
