Toshiba’s high-tech grow rooms are churning out lettuce that never needs washing

Toshiba salad goes on sale next week in Japan.
Why plant lettuce in a clean room?
The obvious answer: Because it’s clean. Everything is tightly controlled, including air pressure, temperature, lighting, bacteria, and dust. The result is a crop that doesn’t need pesticides, doesn’t have bugs, and doesn’t need washing. Toshiba, by the way, isn’t the only Japanese company moving into this field, so to speak: Fujitsu grows lettuce in a semiconductor plant elsewhere in Japan, and Sharp is growing strawberries in Dubai.

Let your defenses down.
This is the country that has contaminated the planet with massive radiation, right?

(it's a yes or no question by the way)
