OECD Program Teaches Fukushima Students To Sell Contaminated Foods

OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development ) has established a rather unusual program targeted at students in Fukushima prefecture. The program claims to teach “new academic ability.” The model project currently going on is a joint project between OECD, Fukushima University and the Education Ministry. The initial project involved students from Date in Fukushima prefecture, one of the towns hit by the nuclear disaster. The project has the stated goal as recovery from the 3-11 disaster.

The project given to the students was to help local farmers “suffering from misperceptions about the safety of their produce following meltdowns at a nuclear power plant”. Not mentioned in the article is that persimmons from Date are considerably contaminated, some enough to keep them off the market. The OECD program showed the students how to repackage the food to make the origins less obvious to consumers in an attempt to sell what is likely a contaminated product. Our review of citizen based food testing showed persimmons from Date had  21.44 to 373.02 bq/kg combined cesium. OECD has been a long time heavy promoter of nuclear power and related industries.
