都内西部私鉄沿線のスーパーは西日本産野菜が多い

2017/5/1、東京都内に出かけ、東横線を利用しました。

下車駅で短時間ながらスーパーの野菜売り場を調べたら、キュウリなど関東産もありますが、約半分は西日本産でした。

読者から指摘があるとおりです。

値段的には関東産が安いはずなのに、お客は文句を言わない、逃げないのですね。

管理人の住む地域のスーパーとはかなり違う印象を受けました。

お客に内部被曝回避の志向がなければ、このような現象は起きません。

分かって黙って行動している人が多くなっている。それ以外にはありません。

ひたちなか市のスーパーでも、西日本産の野菜が多いと聞いています。

5/3は、千葉県下の調査に出かけました。何年か前に西日本の野菜が置いてあると聞いたスーパーを覗きましたが、さっぱり見当たりませんでした。

価格上昇で地方スーパーの中には仕入れが難しくなっているところもあるのでしょう。

Brain-rotting toxin killing huge numbers of marine animals on California coast − Die-offs skyrocket over past week − Expert: “It’s worst year we’ve ever seen” − Mass deaths of sea lions, dolphins, birds − Officials warn outbreak is spreading (VIDEOS)

KKFX FOX 11 transcript, Apr 22, 2017: A local rescue group is getting flooded with calls about sick or dead sea lions showing up on Santa Barbara beaches… Sick and confused, dozens of sea lions are appearing on Santa Barbara beaches with signs of brain damage. Samuel Dover, Channel Islands Marine & Wildlife Institute: “Normally we see injured animals about 1 or 2 here or there… Last Friday we got over 100 calls per day about sea lions in distress.

KSBY, Apr 26, 2017: Marine mammals statewide becoming infected with brain-rotting toxin − A high number of marine mammals in California are falling victim to a brain-rotting toxin… In Santa Barbara County, rescue centers are reporting hundreds of cases. With this outbreak potentially spreading, the Marine Mammal Center in Morro Bay is stocking up on medicine… scientists will be keeping a close eye on what’s happening with these mammals to monitor how else it will affect the marine food chain.

Ventura County Star, Apr 20, 2017: “Friday, we started getting inundated. The floodgates opened,” said [Dover]… Authorities say unusually high numbers of stranded or dead marine mammals and birds have shown up in spots throughout the Southern California coast in recent weeks. Federal and state agencies are working to document the scope of affected wildlife and mortalities… tests are underway to determine the cause of illness and death… they become sick, suffer from seizures and brain damage… The CIMWI hotline started getting about 100 calls on Friday and pretty much every day since, Dover said… [D]olphins have been impacted… Domoic acid poisoning is something he sees year after year, but not to the degree that’s happening right now. “This is the worst year we have ever seen,” Dover said. Beachgoers also have reported large numbers of dead and dying birds… Dover asked that those calling also understand that the agencies have been inundated.

Ventura County Reporter, Apr 26, 2017: Since the beginning of April, beachgoers have reported numerous sightings of discombobulated sea lions and sickly birds… “It has been pretty intense,” said [California State University, Channel Islands, Assistant Professor of Biology Allison Alvarado,] “It was like thousands of birds were being found”… Though domoic acid poisoning is suspected, the exact cause is not as yet determined… [R]eports of unusual numbers of dead or sick animals along the coast stretch from as far north as Goleta and as far south as Malibu…

Santa Barbara Independent, Apr 25, 2017: Since the beginning of April, Julia Parker has seen 216 sick pelagic birds come into the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network. There were only four in February, and three in March… Many more have been found dead on nearby beaches. Pelagic birds live their lives on the ocean. “They only beach themselves if there’s something wrong: if… they’re emaciated and starving,” explained Parker, the network’s Director of Animal Affairs. A large number of the birds found in April displayed neurological symptoms… It’s not just birds… on April 21, “we started getting inundated with calls − 100 calls per day” reporting sea lions stranded on the beaches, said Sam Dover, a veterinarian who runs [Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institute]… In the last two weeks, they’ve also seen six beached dolphins, all dead or dying… It’s likely that animal populations further north could be affected in the coming weeks…

AOL, Apr 23, 2017: Most years, conservationists might see one death from the illness.

CBS LA transcript, Apr 11, 2017: [Pacific Marine Mammal Center] only had 1 or 2 cases last year.

病院が駐車場に除草剤散布

先日、徘徊途中に新しい病院の広い駐車場の脇を通りました。

若い女性が、舗装のなされていない周辺部分に何か大きな白い容器を持ちそれを傾けて液体をボトボトと掛けています。

除草剤かと声をかけたら、容器を見せてくれました。ラウンドアップでした。

一応手にはビニール手袋をはめています。長ズボン、ゴム長靴を履いていたように思います。マスクはどうだったか。

私は除草剤は使ったことがないので、若い女性に特に役に立つことは言ってやれませんでした。

でもね、掃除の係なら、爺さんもいるでしょうに。誰かが若い女性に指示して除草剤撒かせているんですよね。

希釈して噴霧器で撒くよりは、ドボドボと撒いたほうが撒く人の危険は少ないかなと思い立ち去りました。

こちらは数日前に撒いたのでしょう。草が茶色になっています。





日本人は化学薬品使いすぎだと思います。草が勢いよく伸びるこの季節、こんな茶色に枯れたところがあったら立ち入らないようにしましょう。

8.「『ラウンドアップ』はGM種子最大手のモンサント社が販売する、世界で最も普及しているグリホサートを主成分とする除草剤です。モンサント社はこの除草剤を、これに耐性を持つGM種子と必ずセットで販売する。農家がこの除草剤を散布すると、GM種子以外の雑草だけが枯れるしくみです。

集合住宅に住んでいます。
少し前に、毎年していた庭木の伐採の予算がなくなったので
ラウンドアップをまきますからよろしく。というお知らせがあり
慌てて担当の方に「うちの前だけでもまかないで」と伝えました。

周辺の町内会では散布は決定で、「いい感じで草が生えてこないからまいて欲しい」という人がほとんどで、まかないでという人はほぼいないということでした。
遺伝子組換え作物で使っている・・とか、枯葉剤と同じ・・と言っても「???」(何言ってるの?)という反応です。
自分の敷地前のスペースで子どもがトスバッティングしたり、ご主人がゴルフの素振りをするからぜひまいて欲しいという方も・・

「すぐ近くに学校もあり、通学路にもなっているので大丈夫なのか?」と言ったところで神経質な変な人扱いです。
ラウンドアップだろうが、放射能だろうが全く心配ではないというこの自信はどこから来るのか??
ホスピス時代を生きる関東人の正しい生き方のようにも思います。
最近は「家庭用ラウンドアップ」のCMまでしていて愕然とします。
テレビや大本営発表に疑問を持たない大人が一掃されるしか
日本の生き残りの道はないのでしょうか?

311からまる6年。
たとえすぐ横にいようが、夫婦であろうが、親子であろうが、安全派とは生きる世界が全く分かれました。

これを食べたら危ない。と言うと険悪な雰囲気になりますが、この人とは生き別れになるか死に別れになるかしないと自分が助からない・・・と思うようになり、「好きなものを食べさせてあげよう」と

Monsanto accused of hiring army of trolls to silence online dissent – court papers
Biotech giant Monsanto is being accused of hiring, through third parties, an army of Internet trolls to counter negative comments, while citing positive “ghost-written” pseudo-scientific reports which downplay the potential risks of their products.

The documents emerged during pre-trials on 50 lawsuits against Monsanto which were pending in the US District Court in San Francisco. The plaintiffs allege that exposure to the biotech giant’s flagship product, the herbicide Roundup, caused them or their relatives to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma, while Monsanto concealed the potential risks.

In March, a judge ruled, despite Monsanto’s objections, that the documents obtained by the plaintiffs could be released. The court papers are being gathered at the website of food-safety whistleblower organization US Right to Know.

The plaintiffs alleged that Monsanto targeted all online materials and even social media comments that indicate potential dangers of its products, according to one document released late in April.

“Monsanto even started the aptly-named ‘Let Nothing Go’ program to leave nothing, not even Facebook comments, unanswered; through a series of third parties, it employs individuals who appear to have no connection to the industry, who in turn post positive comments on news articles and Facebook posts, defending Monsanto, its chemicals, and GMOs,” the document reads.

On a larger scale, Monsanto allegedly “quietly funnels money to ‘think tanks’ such as the ‘Genetic Literacy Project’ and the ‘American Council on Science and Health”– organizations intended to shame scientists and highlight information helpful to Monsanto and other chemical producers,” according to the plaintiffs.

The accusations are backed by a batch of emails, used in court as evidence, which were written by some Monsanto executives, instructing the staff to “ghost-write” articles and then have some “independent scientists” just sign their names under the “study” in order to reduce costs.

“A less expensive/more palatable approach might be to involve experts only for the areas of contention, epidemiology and possibly MOA (depending on what comes out of the IARC meeting), and we ghost-write the Exposure Tox & Genetox sections,” the letter’s excerpt reads. “An option would be to add Greim and Kier or Kirkland to have their names on the publication, but we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak. Recall that is how we handled Williams Kroes & Munro, 2000.”

Monsanto, however, dismissed such allegations, claiming that the plaintiffs’ attorneys took a “single comment in a single email out of context.” The new accusations appear to be better-founded than earlier ones, which were largely based on the words of one of Monsanto’s top executives, Dr. William Moar, who reportedly said at a conference in January 2015 that the company had an “an entire department,” dedicated to “debunking” science which disagreed with the agrochemical giant’s own research.

One of Monsanto’s most well-known attempts to silence “bad” science was related to a report issued by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in March 2015. Monsanto promptly labelled the report as “biased,” and demanded it be retracted. The report said Roundup’s key ingredient glyphosate was “probably carcinogenic.”

“We question the quality of the assessment,” Monsanto’s vice president of global regulatory affairs, Philip Miller, said. “The WHO has something to explain.”
