Reading a report that states beef “may” have been consumed it ridiculous. Is it really safe to be eating radioactive beef from cows who ate radioactive feed and hay? Reading this makes me think that just about every wrong decision is being made, but then again, that’s what we get in the news. It does make for great headlines, but at the same time, why are cows 18 miles away from a meltdown being farmed? Why aren’t they being checked more regularly?
“Goshi Hosono, state minister in charge of consumer affairs and food-safety, said he hoped to head off any overreactions.
“If we were to eat the meat everyday, then it would probably be dangerous,” Hosono said at a news conference Tuesday. “But if it is consumed only in small portions, I don’t think it would have any long-lasting effects on the human body.”
“… I don’t think”?! C’mon!
