According to multiple sources, mutated butterflies have been found in Japan.
Clearly this is connected to the Fukushima disaster.
The team also bred the collected butterflies at the university’s labs in Okinawa, 1,100 miles (1,750 kilometers) from Fukushima. They noticed more-severe abnormalities in successive generations, such as forked antennas and asymmetrical wings.Source
This is a sign of more to come. From what I understand, insects and other rapid breeders will be the first to show up with deformities as a result of nuclear exposure.
“Nature in the Fukushima area has been damaged,” said Joji Otaki, a professor at the University of the Ryukyus in Okinawa, who is the senior author of the new study.
The abnormalities, which the researchers traced to the radiation released from the nuclear power plant, include infertility,deformed wings, dented eyes, aberrant spot patterns, malformed antennas and legs, and the inability to fight their way out of their cocoons. The butterflies from the sites with the most radiation in the environment have the most physical abnormalities, the researchers found.
Insects have been considered to be highly resistant to radiation, but this butterfly was not,” said Otaki.
I am scared for the safety of the entire Northern Hemisphere and I know many of you are as well. Sadly, the Washington Post is making sure that the masses do not see what is happening with this ongoing situation.
