Mutant butterflies found near Fukushima
« on: August 18, 2012, 07:15:43 PM »
One legacy of the Fukushima nuclear disaster last year has already become apparent through a study of butterflies in Japan: Their rate of genetic mutations and deformities has increased with succeeding generations. 

"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.

And the humans? When will that begin showing up?

 There is a decided decrease in the population of Monarch Butterflies like the same with honey bees. The destruction of the Milk Weed and heavy use of herbicides and insecticides is having its effects. Farmers in some states try to farm every square inch of ground and leave little or nothing for habitat. We as a people are reaping what has been sown. :(
