GLUTINOUS RICE WITH SPICY FISH FLOSS (PULUT SAMBAL)
IS THE CONTAMINATION OFF FUKUSHIMA WATERS SPREADING
As I was cooking the Spicy Fish Floss my thoughts flew to Fukushima. Greenpeace had taken samples of marine life including fish, shellfish and seaweed outside Japan’s 12-mile territorial waters and along the Fukushima coast. The samples were found to contain levels of radioactivity above legal limits for food contamination.This results were accredited by laboratories in France and Belgium.
According to the Japanese authorities radioactivity is being dispersed or diluted in the ocean.Let us hope this is true. Else just imagine the damage and the time taken for nature to restore the damage.
Take care of yourself ya.
