A friend keeps making the joke that “It’s going to be a great gardening year. Just like the Gilligan’s Island episode Pass the Vegatables Please.”
Here’s the plot …
Gilligan finds a crate of radioactive vegetable seeds. The plants grow quickly and grossly misshapen, but the Castaways are so hungry for new items in their diet that they consume them quickly. The plants, when eaten, give the castaways super-human powers. Of course, after he realizes that the vegetables are radioactive, the Professor saves the day by having the castaways eat the soap they had been making to absorb the radioactivity.
‘Art’ predicts life so we’ll go with the Professor’s advice and try and eat our way out of this current radioactive mess we’re in.
aangirfan has a post Foods to Protect Against Radiation and it reminded me of what we think we need to eat that may be to our advantage in fighting off the invisible devils that plague us.
How to Protect Yourself from Radiation is another overview and there are many other folks who have sound advice.
People are talking about all kinds of exotic remedies that may be of great value. Herbs and supplements I’m sure are useful but there’s a problem for those of us of limited means. We won’t be able to get any of these ‘medicines’ and pay the light bill at the same time. That leaves us pretty much with a diet only resistance and on the budget we can swing.
Growing our own, organic, raw, local, non-processed, non-GMO are some of the keywords. You know what to do. I don’t have to repeat it. Suggestions for a poor man’s fight against poisons are always appreciated.
But when the seeds become radioactive … we’ll know we’re in trouble. Gilligan warned us.
This unknown artist’s rendition seems symbolic of our times.
“We’re being swamped.”
