Japan's mutant vegetables.... real or hoax?

These pictures are supposedly from the aftermath of the Fukushima's fallout, but are they?

The article states that it's from a Korean website and can't confirm whether or not the veges are actually from Japan.

The fall out from Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster two years ago appears to have found its way into the food chain, as a series of snaps apparently showing 'mutant vegetables' have emerged online.

A Korean website has published pictures of flowers, vegetables and fruit covered with deformities and lumps.

But it is not immediately clear where the produce was farmed from, whether the images have been doctored and whether the nuclear disaster is in fact to blame.

Revenge of the mutant vegetables

These are just a few pictures, there are more on that site, as well as others.

Once again, can't confirm nor deny that these are from Japan BUT we all know what some of the effects of nuclear radiation can be.......Mutation.



ETA: I realize that threads were posted last year on this but being as I never saw them & this article is recent, I thought that maybe there were other posters as well that might not know about this.

MODS please remove if needed.......

i started a thread on that when i very first got on ats...
fukushima mutations
it's got some good pictures (scroll down)
some of them do seem to be from japan, but it is questionable wether radiation has caused what is seen here.
there is a recent arcticle on this site here that seems to indicate it is not.
here is a 6 foot tall dandelion...

I can neither confirm or deny any of these reports, but it is common for mutations to spring up once in awhile. Radiation would affect the rate at which these mutations occur.

We would have to research the history surrounding the frequency of these occurrences prior to Fukashima and after.

Though would makes sense if this was the case. We have Chernobyl as reference. The wildlife and vegetation around that reactor has undergone significant genetic mutation I believe.

Also lets not forget:


Sorry had to throw a bit of humor in.

But possibly normal variations.
There is a ton of perfectly healthy produce destroyed/used for other purposes everyday because it doesn't meet certain uniform criteria.

Given the amount of radiation raining down
in that region,. those are no real surprise
I'd be willing to bet the Rad Meter would have some high readings
also when near those things

I'm not saying that I'm an expert at this , but doesn't radiation kill the soil which means that the soil doesn't support any planting ? As I said I'm no expert , but just thinking in another way.
