It makes one wonder how this is going to have shaped the future of our entire planet; had this disaster not happened, the path of things to follow would have remained very different.

Plants in the area around Fukushima, Japan are widely contaminated with radioactive cesium, which is
producing mutation and death in local butterflies, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa and published in the journal Scientific Reports.
The butterflies were found to experience severe negative effects at all detectable radiation levels, even very low ones.
“We conclude that the risk of ingesting a polluted diet is…
