Sunflowers 🌻 used to clear up Radiation!

When a tsunami hit the Fukushima area of Japan in 2011, the radioactive ☢️ fallout from the nearby nuclear power plant  contaminated the land and water for 50 Km’s – in every direction. Even outside the evacuation zone, the soil shows traces of radiation, which can wind up in any food grown there.

To help rehabilitate the land, seeds of Mustard, Amaranthus, Cockscomb, and Sunflowers, were scattered in fields and open areas – all plants known to soak up radioactive particles.

More than 8 million sunflowers 🌻 were planted within the first six months after the disaster.  Helping to absorb the radiation ☢️ from the air and soil.
