If you ever find yourself face to face with the Hulk you don't have to find his girlfriend to calm him down. Grab as much hemp as you can and bury the Hulk in it until he turns back into Bruce. Hemp's diverse industrial versatility extends to nuclear mishaps.
When the Chernobyl meltdown occurred, it contaminated an area nearly 20 miles wide with radioactive ions and metallic toxins. Death, health concerns, and developmental disorders have been reported since the incident. Officials and environmental groups, for years, have searched for solutions to make the area habitable again.
One process groups use to clean the surrounding area is phytoremediation. In this process, plants clean the soil of radiation and metallic toxins. Crops are grown then regrown to filter the soil. Over time, the toxins and radiation are removed from the soil.
Two members of the mustard family are commonly used for this process. Hemp, with its faster growth rates and excellent resistance to toxins is causing many to consider this as a more suitable solution. Some believe that it should be used around the Fukushima reactor.
"Hemp is proving to be one of the best phyto-remediative plants we have been able to find," said Slavik Dushenkov, a research scientist with PHYTOTECH."
