Japan: the tragedy has a face

I got an email from a friend in Japan, She writes:
> We already lost numerous farmlands from TSUNAMI. In addition to the
> disaster, Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant has, and is going to affect more
> farmland, of course organic farms also.
> You might already know that a farmer had committed suicide because he
> found his organic vegetables were contaminated by radiation effects. He
> has been organic farmer more than 30 years; his life was all about
> producing safe, careful, ethical foods. It is just such a pain.
