Not quite sure whether that's a serious question or a
troll's bait.

If serious, then (re)read my partof the thread.

If not, it reminds me of a forced-attendance
college-vistor's talk (back in early 60's)
about worldwide fallout from nuclear tests,
and how it was in all the food we ate.
Some student raised his hand and asked, "Why do
you scientists keep adding all this strontium-90 
to our milk".
