Kopp Online, Xander News and other non-English news agencies are reporting that the EU implemented a secret “emergency” order without informing the public which increases the amount of radiation in food by up to 20 times previous food standards.
According to EU by-laws, radiation limits may be raised during a nuclear emergency to prevent food shortages.
But there is anger across Europe because this emergency order was issued while officials say there is no threat to the food.

Because the true consequences of Chernobyl provide a baseline for what people should know as the impacts of the disaster unfold in Japan, EnviroVideo has released an important new video, “Chernobyl: A Million Casualties.” Watch it at http://blip.tv/file/4922080
This 29-minute film is based on the book recently published by the New York Academy of Sciences, Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment, which concludes that, based on now available medical data, 985,000 people died as a result of the Chernobyl disaster, as of 2004.
