Fukushima: Disturbing Transformations of Vegetables, Fruits, Flowers, and Animals Exposed to Radiation

This radish has taken
the form of a hand.
This message has just been posted on the MSN site, the original source of this information: "CORRECTION:  A post on a website in Japan reports that these images aren’t related to the Fukushima disaster. We regret passing along the misinformation." We leave it to readers to decide for themselves or do more research.  It could also be that pro-nuclear countries are trying to spread misinformation by denying the truth.  

See also these photos from a South Korean Website - can anyone verify that these are from the Fukushima area after the nuclear catastrophe?

Fukushima: Disturbing Transformations of Vegetables, Fruits, Flowers, and Animals Exposed to Radiation

On 11 March 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant liberated radioactive particles following the earthquake in eastern Japan. Today, the first consequences of this exposure have been noticed especially in fruits and vegetables, and also in some flowers and animals.

This ear of corn has
an abnormal shape.
On 11 March 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in eastern Japan did not resist the earthquake which took place a few hours earlier off the coast, provoking a tsunami. The automatic shutdown of the reactors in operation caused a freeing of nuclear particles, forming a cloud. If the Japanese Government ensured that all was under control in the days that followed this catastrophe, nature was seriously affected by the incident. Vegetables as well as animals would bear the consequences of this exposure to radiation, as relays the American site, MSN.

Fish, the first victims

These peaches are like
Siamese twins.
From tomatoes to frogs, including cherries, dandelions and roses, numerous vegetables, fruits, flowers and animals have been subject to genetic mutations from the strong exposure to radiation liberated by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

The fauna and flora were not the main preoccupation of the Japanese at that time. Japan, however, is one of the countries which consumes the most fish in the world and fishing is widely developed. Also, the country exports products coming from its waters. Within only a few days after the catastrophe, the level of radioactivity in the region of Fukushima was 380 times superior to the normal level. The consequence of this hyper-radioactivity two years after the catastrophe?  Here it is in pictures.

Very strange transformations of vegetables

One of the flowers of this sunflower
has grown from the other.
Tomatoes in astonishing forms, cucumbers of unusual growth, tomatoes transformed into eggplant or radishes taking the form of the hand of Mickey Mouse, the famous mouse dear to Walt Disney... Fruits are equally affected: oranges have taken on a strange color, peaches have become like Siamese twins, cherry clusters are no longer picked in one or two cherries but in at least five. The local fruit, the persimmon, has quadrupled in size. Regarding flowers, dandelions, roses and even sunflowers have unusual forms. The most disturbing is the genetic transformation of this frog. Normally green, a photo shows a light blue color. 

If nothing has officially shown a link between the catastrophe and the transformation of these fruits, vegetables and flowers, the inhabitants no longer doubt it.

What consequences for humans?
This frog is no longer green
but light blue.

The consequences for the human genome or at least for certain physical traits have not yet been observed. However, numerous incidents like this could signal that one day, Man will suffer the consequences of this catastrophe. And it is likely that genetic diseases and cancers will be diagnosed in the region in the coming years, as happened at Chernobyl following the explosion of the nuclear power plant on 26 April 1986.
