You OBVIOUSLY don't know what a breeder reactor does, it takes useless U238
and makes Pu. LOTS of Pu!!

If you have been living on top of a strata for 1 million years, and know
where and what is safe to eat and drink, in fact you EVOLVED there, do
you think that stirring it all up to settle in some other manner really
deep down would be a good idea?? If all the poisons your body just cannot
handle, like heavy metals, were stirred up and poured on your lettuce,
would you eat it? Use your brain. Mother nature's a bitch.

You need to study this seriously to learn why NOT!
