Let me get this straight... You feed a butterfly abnormal food and they are more likely to be abnormal? Luckily the results aren't the same with people right? Otherwise we would need food inspectors and regulations. Monsanto has told me that's not necessary...

The thing is, tiny entities take tiny amounts of radiation and spread it around. So tiny amounts of radiation are everywhere now.

Hormesis. It's in the spell check vocabulary. It may be why eating organic food is healthier, the organic product produces more natural pesticides. At that point you eat tiny amounts relative to your size.
