We just bought some onions from Hermiston, OR. You can see on the map that Hermiston is down the Columbia River from the Hanford Nuclear Site, maybe the most contaminated site in the U.S. I readily admit I’m not a scientist, but a ton of produce is grown in the Hermiston area — watermelons, potatoes, onions, and apples (in Washington). Tell me again WHY? I also think it’s interesting that Google chose not to label the Hanford site (my lettering appears in red).
Here is a shot of the outside of one of the onions (with a Hermiston label), followed by a shot of the inside of one of this same batch of onions. I don’t know about you, but something doesn’t seem at all right. I’ve never seen an onion with a core layer that looks anything like that. Okay, maybe that onion just as some kind of rot or disease. Maybe I’m being way too paranoid. But knowing how close it was grown to Hanford, which we know has been leaking for a long time, is a clue that radioactive waste could be filtering into the groundwater. And farmers use wells or river water to irrigate. If I sound like a “conspiracy theorist” that’s because the media silences anyone who questions what they see with their own eyes by refusing to acknowledge the possibilities and labels such people conspiracy nut jobs. That’s because mega corporations work behind the scenes to buy silence.
We know that children in Japan are now being diagnosed with thyroid cancer post Fukushima melt-down. The 1950s atomic age just keeps on giving, doesn’t it?
