The Indian military will use hot pepers against terrorist

The Indian military is turning to no-tech resources to create new high tech weapons against terrorism: Hot peppers. But not just any hot pepper- Bhut Jolokia, the world’s hottest chili.

The diminutive thumb-sized pepper packs such an overwhelming punch that, after enduring a litany of tests, the military has plans to put bhut jolokia, also known as "ghost chili," to use in tear gas-like hand grenades meant to immobilize suspects. Though nontoxic, the potent pepper causes people to choke, forcing them out of their hiding places. How can such a seemingly innocent pepper have such a profound effect? And why haven’t the jalapeno, habanero, or Serrano been introduced to such warfare? It all comes to heat units, Scoville Heat Units (SHU) to be exact.

The Scoville scale measures the heat of a chili pepper by how much capsaicin it contains. For example, a Jalapeno is 8,000 SHU, Serrano is 22,000 SHU, Cayenne is 50,000 SHU and Habanero is 325,000 SHU. A Ghost pepper, however, tops the charts at 1 million. Well, 1,041,000 to be exact. The pepper is so potent that when cutting into it, it’s advised to wear gloves. Of course some daredevil foodies decided to challenge themselves to eat the pepper using a time lapse camera to document the severity of the burn as well as how long it takes to take full tear-jerking effect. Within moments there were tears in their eyes. In minutes you could see the pain in their eyes. Now imagine that stuff being exploded via hand grenade into your eyes. It may be all-natural, but I know that I don’t want to be caught on Indian enemy lines.

Japan: Greenpeace responds to the levels of radioactivity in food and water

"The alarming increase in reports of radioactive contamination in the food chain in Japan and water reserves demonstrate once again that the government's statements minimizing the consequences of the Fukushima nuclear crisis and the risks to public health are , at best, unreliable, "said Dr. Rianne Teule, member of the Energy Campaigner for Greenpeace International.

"A few days ago, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government said that radiation levels had fallen in the city, and yet today warned that babies should not drink tap water in Tokyo. Maybe the authorities are trying to keep his courage in the crisis and not panic, "but it puts at risk the health of the population?"

"The disaster of Fukushima shows that it is impossible to guarantee the safety of the population to a nuclear accident," said Teule. "During the past two weeks, we detected inconsistencies and information very unclear from the Japanese authorities, and conflicting advice from international nuclear regulators."

"Any attempt to support the nuclear industry based on climate change is a danger misleading in light of the crisis in Fukushima. The only intelligent response to this nuclear wake-up call would be for governments worldwide to invest in efficient energy sources and to redouble their efforts to adopt safe energy sources and renewables. "


Tests conducted by the Tokyo metropolitan government found 210 becquerels of iodine-131 for 1 liter of tap water in the city, more than twice the limit of 100 becquerels that are safe for babies. Clicking here to read the

The Japanese authorities began reporting on contamination levels found in 11 different vegetables. In many vegetables, like broccoli and cabbage (Fukushima Prefecture, the most polluted area) levels of radioactivity exceeded the safety limits set by the Ministry of Food and Security.
