Quotes

...own testing has left consumers flying blind when it comes to making personal decisions about food safety," says Nancy Foust of SimplyInfo.org. "The current FDA intervention level for radiation in food is far too high and does not consider all the research on health consequences."
...Modern nuclear weapons are far more powerful than the US bombs that killed more than 200,000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.  "With a large war between the United States and Russia, we are talking about the possible - not certain, but possible - extinction of the human race. "In this kind of war, biologically there are going to be people surviving somewhere on the planet but the chaos that would result from this would dwarf anything we've ever seen," Helfand said. The study said that black carbon aerosol particles kicked into the atmosphere by a South Asian nuclear war would reduce US corn and soybean production by around 10 per cent over a decade. These particles would also reduce China's rice production by an average of 21 per cent over four years and by another 10 per cent over the following six years. The updated study also found severe effects on China's wheat, production of which would plunge by 50 per cent the first year after the nuclear war and would still be 31 per cent below baseline a decade later, it said."
...people around the world already suffer from malnutrition, an event of such as nuclear war and its consequences would result in global famine. "It is not just the arsenals of the US and Russia that pose a threat to the whole world. Even these smaller arsenal pose an existential threat to our civilization, if not to our species.
