( radiation Mushrooms to the rescue:)
We need to know more on these kinds of plants as nuclear disaster will happen more with predicted earth quakes. Obviously, Governments are not regulated and put their people at risk for risky energies, oil that pollute our fish and oceans. Behind it all is Wall Street, the millionaires, corporation who buy and sell. http://www.sciencenetlinks.org/sci_update.php?DocID=248 In the future these weeds may cooperate with environmentalists to clean up toxic wastes. It will "soak,", "INHALING" OR "SWALLOWING UP" HEAVY METALS such as, uranium. This weed works better before they start to blow. Uranium can damage the kidneys and possible the lungs and many unexplained military illness like the Gulf War Syndrome, but not yet proven. If proven, governments would have to issue out checks to veterans so, this research will never go further. Uranium has been enriched for use in nuclear power reactors and nuclear weapons by increasing its percentage of U235. http://iicph.org/du_qa Ulmer-Scholle's research found that depleted uranium may spread to neighboring area so they must spread seed and plant on sites known to be contaminated. OTHER PHYTOREMEDIATIONS ; *Chinese Ladder fern Pteris vittata (brake fern) It's highly efficient accumulator of arsenic. It can absorb 2 % of its weight in arsenic. *In Danury, Conn. cottonwood trees sucks mercury from the contaminated soil. *Calif. researchers use transgenic Indian mustard plant to soak up dangerously high selenium deposits caused by irrigation.

They can be helpful in getting heavy metal not only from the environments but also from the body. Note: Even houseplants can fight pollutions such as bevzene, formaldehyde, CO and nitrogen oxides. Reverse Osmos (water) N.Y. has gone to planting green for less polluted environment with a special planting of their green program on roofs and parks. Add in your comments.
It's a little late: avoid the foods if possible grown in this area...fish, herbals, the water is now polluted for the farmer. It will take generations to recover from effects to radiation exposure. The tally is not in our view yet... We'll see how the baby's and animals do as a result of drinking the surroundings and waters to their next generations. As similar to St. George Utah older residence who where compensated by the government for their cancers i.e. but not all were pay-off. John Wayne had problems with it's fall-out while filming a western in St. George.
Thousands of dead pigs discovered floating in Shanghai river that provides drinking water to millions in China
(NaturalNews) The bodies of 13,000 dead pigs have been founds in the rivers and streams that supply the Chinese metropolis of Shanghai with its drinking water. The carcasses are believed to have floated downstream from the city of Jiaxing in the Zhejiang... This is going to effect all of us the world over...we all eat the fish they migrate and the water is now not fit to drink....
Help wanted at Fukushima Do you want to work there? Nuclear plants only have a short lifetime (ten-15 years, then what is done with the fall-out and tailings) Many towns want to know too.
