    Another diet & health correlation study. I will treat it with all the gravity it deserves.

    Remember when all the anti science loons were screaming about the dead babies killed in Washington State by the radioactive atmospheric plume from Fukushima? Remember the hundred thousand excess adult deaths caused by said plume? Remember all the starfish turned to mush by the radioactive plume in the water?

    Lots of hysteria at the time on the part gullible simpletons, but the first two did not happen and the third could not have happened by virtue of the simple fact that Fukushima radiation has yet to migrate across the Pacific to the West Coast – and the monitoring stations are keeping a sharp eye out for the first signs, which should happen any month now.

    So ENENews has major egg on its face while the hysterics are whistling in painful embarrassment as they hope nobody notices and remembers how utterly wrong they were.

    The truth is bad enough. Wasting disease is horrible. There is no need to exaggerate in hopes of pumping up one’s exterior agenda.
