Drawing on research from the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986, scientists say that for most Japanese, the long term risk may lie in drinking milk and water or eating food, as well as direct exposure to contaminated soil. Environmentalist Donald Milton says, "Even in most of the Ukraine and in larger areas of Europe after Chernobyl, the major routes of exposure were not directly from the air, but rather through food, especially milk, produced from contaminated areas, and from fallout deposited on the ground."
Atmospheric scientist Russell Dickerson agrees and says, "The stuff tends to stay close to where it was released. The real danger lies not while the particles are in the air, but once rain carries it to the soil and watershed." In other words, since cows eat hay that has been grown on contaminated soil, the radiation gets into the food chain. When it comes to what we eat and drink, we don't have to worry about radiation here in the US, but we DO have to worry about how fat we're all becoming. If that's YOUR problem, you need Anne Strieber's famous diet book, "What I Learned From the Fat Years." Using scientific principles, she devised a diet that helped her to lose 100 pounds and YOU CAN TOO.
