Loyal Theorists, nowadays I seem to be thinking a lot about the future of the world. Over on my other channel, Game Theory, I've talked a lot about the franchise of Fallout. Now that we've launched Food Theory, I think it's time to cover a topic I've always wondered about - what CAN you eat after a nuclear apocalypse? What food out there is safe from the radiation that would permeate pretty much everything? Today, we're going to find out what's on the menu after nuclear fallout!

  • As a farmer I can tell up it's going to be a little harder then just scrapping the top soil. And cannabis is a plant that is used at a lot of sites to remove radioactive materials from the soil. You probably shouldn't smoke it though. Lol

  • Once u scrape the soil you can plant some sunflowers to soak up the leftover radiation and the sunflowers won't let the Radiation out so it's 100% clean soil

  • Kinda disappointed in you Matt. Ionizing electromagnetic radiation and particle radiation are 2 very different things, even though many people mistakenly lump them together. Explainer made a good article explaining the difference:

  • When a nuke is airbursted the radioactive isotopes tend to linger in the upper atmosphere for so long its no longer radioactive or at least has very little radioactivity left before it returns to earth... comparing nuclear power plant disasters to nuclear war isn't isn't good comparison... still love the video though😁

  • I would say I would go to a large city in a zombie, but only after the initial surge of the infected. To survive the initial surge i would try an open field with multiple people. The city will have loads of resources and possibly ammo, and after the first wave it should have been cleared out of people. Ask in comments if you have questions.
