Please share stories you have heard, or personal experiences farming in relation to Biodynamics and Radioactivity.

Over the past 2 years together with a small group in Dornach, Switzerland we have organised events to bring the current situation in Fukushima to peoples awareness. Through our work we have made contact with organisations in Japan, and are looking for concrete ways to help the people affected by radiation (many of whom still live in radioactive areas).

In the last year I have head a number of stories about Biodynamic farms where after radioactive fallout, the levels of radiation mesured in the farms plant and animal products were considerably lower than the neighbouring farms. We would like to collect such stories to enchorage experimentation and research in this field by people in Japan and around the world. Ideally in the future to some to a scientific basis for these stories.

Attached is one such story.


Many thanks for your help!

I found so much that I declined to read it all.

A light skimming, tells me that $14.99 can solve some of the worst environmental issues ever seen. Someone should tell the Japanese government, before they spend billions more on the problem. 💰

Here is another short piece on Biodynamics and radiation. Barrel Compound in particular has been shown to remediate soils well.

What kind of corn soldier are you? And don't say "kernel" - that's only for this tiny ad:
