Countries now testing Japanese imports for radiation — Most at-risk items are dairy, fruits, and vegetables


Asia to test Japan food imports for radiation, Reuters, March 14, 2011 at 9:01 am GMT:

South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines will test Japanese food imports for radiation, officials said on Monday, and other countries may also step up monitoring as Japan tries to contain a nuclear crisis.

"As far as radiation is concerned, I think the most at-risk articles are ... fresh products, perhaps dairy products, fresh fruits and vegetables," Hong Kong's Food and Health Secretary York Chow said.

    SMH! Let's test everything coming from Japan for radiation, but do basically nothing and say the seafood from the Gulf is A-OK! *sigh*

    Ronald Reagan's son is saying Obama is his father's 'Mini-Me'.
    Obama is a wilted carrot at MINIMUM.
    He does not care about the gulf. Neither does Hilary Clinton- who is the LEAD in pushing Monsanto's GMO's- which Africa won't even accept as food aid!!!; (gmo rice/etc).

    See Jesse Ventura's interviews w/folks who admit $40,000,000 is waiting to go into the gulf. They want the people out first. I would not have wanted to see Jesse Ventura really, but I was really pleased and impressed with his research. It's on youtube.

    On the gulf seafood- you did hear our government will buy it up and feed it to military families.
    Most don't know Bumblebee Tuna already pulled out and moved to Thailand.

    I'd LOVE to hear some interviews w/Vietnamese fishing families down there.
    Wish Dr. Rodney Soto's assistance was more available to folks in need. I wish there were a list of doctors in the gulf who want chemically sick folks to look them up. Where are they? Has 96% of the population always been so....?
