So you thought caesium in beef was the worst there is to worry about? Silly you!

It’s attracting far less attention, but the radioactive leaf compost is getting to be like the radioactive beef.First, it was 20,000 bags sold in Akita. Then, an unknown number of bags sold in Tottori link in Japanese. Now it turns out 200,000 bags of the radioactive leaf compost from a retailer based in Gunma Prefecture have been sold at least in 23 prefectures, Tottori included, at the retailer’s 166 outlets throughout Japan.Home gardeners in 23 prefectures ended up irradiating their garden soil.From Mainichi Shinbun Japanese 7/28/2011:
