Rice

Postby Ice.Maiden » 08 Feb 2015, 19:40

In Europe, we eat a lot of rice and much of it comes from Japan. Unfortunately, this's to be grown again in the fields around Fukushima, where the nuclear meltdown occurred.

Wild monkeys that reside in a forest near Fukushima are now showing alarming changes in their blood composition, and this obviously doesn't bode well with humans who're expected to eat rice which's been grown in soil still contaminated with caesium and other toxic substances. I just find it weird that the Japanese're anti-GM crops, and yet're willing to eat this rice.

Does it bother you?

The idea of rice hailing from that part of Japan puts me off.
