Fukushima city “Eating mushroom protects you from radioactive material”

On 7/8/2014, Fukushima city government announced public information to educate about radiation.
It’s titled “Let’s build body constitution that can’t be defeated by radiation”.
It is supposed to teach us how to get over the radioactive contamination.
It reads,

1. How to get the life style to increase metabolism.
– They say efficient metabolism helps us push out radioactive material even if we take it in.
Ⅰ. Go to bed early and get up early so we can have good sleep.
Ⅱ. Have breakfast.
Ⅲ. Take well balanced diet.
Ⅳ. Take good exercise. (It is also important to take a walk or play outside.)
Ⅴ. Don’t worry excessively. Try not to get stressed too much.
2. Keep these in mind.
Ⅰ. Open the window to keep good ventilation.
Ⅱ. Dry clothes in sunshine.
Ⅲ. Air futon outside when it’s sunny.
Ⅳ. Wash your hands and gargle when you are back home.

It is not clear who made this publication.

In the same publication’s “diet version”, root vegetables, mushroom and seaweed are recommended.
It reads these food contain dietary fiber, which works to excrete radioactive material taken in.

Mushroom and root vegetables are known to accumulate radioactive material. Seaweed is also assumed to accumulate it from the sea contamination.
However, none of these risks are mentioned.
