Radioactive elements in consumer products usher the need for stock piling foods for emergency situations
U.S. authorities are considering allowing radioactive materials into consumer goods. In order to get rid of the tons of radioactive scrap that has accumulated due to years of nuclear testing activities, the government is likely to lift the restrictions in recycling and reusing these nuclear waste products.
Natural News reports that this nuclear waste may find its way into various consumer products like silverware, belt buckles and even surgical instruments. It is needless to mention that if the radioactive waste is used in these products, it can give rise to an untoward situation.
This method of getting rid of nuclear waste has been devised by the U.S.Department of Energy. But it is not the first time that the DOE has come up with such a ridiculous and dangerous plan. Back in the 1990s, it tried to empty the stock of radioactive materials onto American citizens. However, in the year 2000, Energy Secretary Bill Richardson was convinced by Congressman Ed Markey to reinstate the ban on recycling and reuse of radioactive waste products. The DOE proposes allowing 14,000 metric tons of radioactive scrap metal into consumer products.
If this decision is implemented, it will surely give rise to some unpleasant situations. The condition of society can easily be anticipated. Therefore, Natural News emphasizes the necessity of stockpiling some essential foods that can be used in times of emergency. These foods include several organic products and materials of daily use such as sugar, pepper, mustard, butter, honey, canned vegetables and meats with a long shelf life, brown rice and sardines packed in olive oil. These food items should be stored in a cool, dark and dry place. Most of these items can be kept for years if they are stored under perfect conditions.
