Food Safety : Radiation / Contamination

Highly contaminated barley and wheat are coming to the market

Fukushima Diary

Posted by Mochizuki

Two of the most basic ingredients, barley and wheat are highly contaminated and distributed to everyday supermarkets.

Though Japanese barley and wheat don’t have price competitive power, we need to check the exporting volume of Japanese contaminated products and to where. On this article, I will only report the contamination situation of them.

In July of 2011, Ibaraki prefecture measured high level of cesium from their barley.[Link 1 2] However because the safety limit of food was 500 Bq/Kg at that time, they were let to the market.

(Ibaraki prefecture is the third largest producing area of barley in Japan.(7.9%, 2005) )

Highest readings.

Sample 1

Sample taken : 6/20 ~ 7/4/2011

<Settlement report 8/11/2012>

I’m taking up this space to report how much donation I received yesterday.

I’m sorry for the belated report.

I booked a flight ticket yesterday but soon after I submit my credit card information, I was transfered to their starting page and no confirmation code was received. thought that was the first fishing fraud I’ve encountered in my life.

I managed to call them to check and so far, they are an ok airline company and safe.. hope so.

Today I’m going to catch up with news. Sorry for inconvenience.

Why is this Organic Food Stuffed With Toxic Solvents?


By Dr. Mercola


Last December, the U.S. National Organic Standards Board, an expert panel that advise the USDA Secretary on organic matters, narrowly approved Martek Biosciences Corporation’s petition to allow the use of their genetically modified soil fungus and algae as nutritional supplements in organic food.

The product is an omega 3/omega-6 oil (DHA/ARA) synthesized from fermented algae and soil fungus.

The oil is extracted from this biomass using hexane, a neurotoxic byproduct of gasoline refinement that is specifically banned in organics.

The Cornucopia Institute investigated Martek’s patent and safety filings at the FDA, and discovered that the product also contains synthetic chemicals, stabilizers, carriers, and some of the ingredients are also genetically modified.

(As it turns out, some of their products were developed by Monsanto before Martek bought the technical rights.)

Martek’s formulated oils are added to “organic” milk, infant formula, and a number of different foods. After a formal legal complaint, the USDA announced in 2010 that it had “inappropriately” allowed Martek oils to be included in organic foods.

But enforcement of their removal was delayed for 18 months in an apparent effort to permit corporate lobbyists to petition for review and legal inclusion in organic food. According to the Conucopia Institute:

“Although Martek told the board that they would discontinue the use of the controversial neurotoxic solvent n-hexane for DHA/ARA processing, they did not disclose what other synthetic solvents would be substituted. Federal organic standards prohibit the use of all synthetic/petrochemical solvents”……

Yet, rarely does any doctor offer those women the fourth choice of treatment, which does not endanger their fertility whatsoever, and does not even require taking medication. The latest study finds that very few women with cancer take…

7 Home Remedies for Your Dog


When you’re feeling under the weather, you might find that the perfect thing for treating what ails you is something you already have in the kitchen. Did you know that you can treat your ailing dog with some simple home remedies too? Below you will find seven great natural remedies for making your dog happy and healthy again.

Vitamin E is good for preventing those pesky age lines on your face, and it’s also great for your dog’s dry skin.
