Beyond Nuclear on Thom Hartmann Radio: Is Japan's Rejected Radioactive Food Ending Up at Your Grocery Store?

Thom Hartmann hosted Beyond Nuclear on his radio program to discuss the ongoing Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, six years on (3/11/11-3/11/17). Thom and Beyond Nuclear's Radioactive Waste Watchdog, Kevin Kamps, discussed the article by Beyond Nuclear's Radiation/Health Hazard Specialist, Cindy Folkers, "Fukushima Catastrophe at Six: Normalizing Radiation Exposure Demeans Women and Kids and Risks Their Health," appearing in Counterpunch.

By the way, Kevin had just come straight from the Native NoDAPL Nations Rise/Rise With Standing Rock march, from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers HQ to the White House (in freezing rain conditions!).

Kevin's tee shirt reads "Remember the Kalamazoo," and shows a Potawatomi Indian tending a boiling pot ("Kalamazoo" reportedly means "boiling pot" in Potawatomi). "Remember the Kalamazoo" refers to the "Dilbit Disaster," as reported by Inside Climate News -- the worst inland oil spill in U.S. history. On July 25, 2010, 1.4 million gallons of Canadian tar sands crude oil leaked into the Kalamazoo River, upstream of Lake Michigan, when Enbridge of Canada's oil pipeline burst in Marshall, Michigan. Inside Climate News won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting for its "Dilbit Disaster" multi-part series.
