Today, I was diagnosed with food poisoning for the third time since moving to this base in Japan. My husband keeps cooking questionable meat and vegetables from the commissary because he thinks the food from a Japanese grocery store is radioactive. FML

Some of the vegetables are radioactive actually. Just use more heat. It's usually the stuff you don't cook like the innocent salads... good luck OP

Clarification: Heat won't make the radioactive vegetables safe for consumption. I meant your husband needs to use more heat on the food he does choose to serve.

You are wrong. The radiation from Fukushima is not a concern this long afterwards. If it was, the USS George Washington's reactor department would be freaking out.

Also, banana's have scary radiation. Be terrified! Or informed, I prefer the latter.

Why is it that the person fear mongering about radiation gets a ton of likes and the person trying to give information on the true levels and concerns for the radiation gets dislikes?

I've lived at one of the Air Force bases there. I thought the commissary food was decent. I'm wondering if he's thoroughly cooking the meats, particularly poultry.


I currently live on the Yokosuka Naval Base where I'm stationed. It's hit or miss but the produce is particularly bad. I haven't had an issue with the meat but others have. Best foods are all out in town though.

Your husband isn't too bright. Either he should look where the food in the grocers comes from and avoid areas that are near the reactor issues, or you both have bigger problems if you are living in a contaminated area. It also sounds like either your husband need cooking lessons, or the commissary is breaking health regulations. Get tested for parasites OP.

Not once did I say he was a bad person in my post. I said he wasn't too bright because either he isn't picking up on the pattern of his wife becoming ill after he cooks food from the base. If he has noticed that she does, and refuses to correct the behavior, THAT would make him a somewhat terrible husband at the least.
