First Atomic Bomb Test Exposed unaware U.S. Civilians to Radiation


news.yahoo.com

The world’s first atomic bomb test might have exposed unaware civilians in New Mexico to thousands of times the recommended level of public radiation exposure, according to reconstructed data in a new study.

The research, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), found that ingestion of radioactive materials—primarily from irradiated rainwater and goat’s milk—might have been a substantial contributor to public radiation exposure that was largely not accounted for.

This is actually not really news to true scholars of the Trinty test. Several remote ranchers were either left in place or not evacuated (delibrate or otherwise) and were exposed and tested following the blast to see the effects. Also many Manhattan Project workers were left un treated for similar studies. It was basically the Tuskeege experiments with radiation replacing syhpillis.

I am not surprised.

Britian carried out atomic testing at Maralinga and the Indigenous Groups of that area were not advised.


Maralinga is Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal dialect for "Field of Thunder". Aborigines may have been directly affected by the blasts. Compensation is currently being sought in Australian courts.

That makes it even more of an attrocity.

What is the selection criteria for being a guinea pig?

Because of its importance in the war, the Trinity test was conducted in secret. Little was known about the dangers of radiation exposure in the 1940s, so local residents were not warned or evacuated in advance of—or even following—the test. As a result, people in surrounding areas were exposed to radiation by breathing contaminated air, eating contaminated foods, and drinking affected water and milk. Some ranches were located within 15 miles of ground zero, and commercial crops were grown nearby.


What a crock! If they knew so little about the dangers, then wouldn't all of the people that worked with the radiation have gotten poisoned? If they didn't know it was dangerous, then they wouldn't have taken precautions to protect themselves, right?

Yup, had to be intentional

It's hard to believe that there are so many people in the world that have such a disregard for human life.

Totally clueless Civilians or even Army dis info about no radiation.
The Army had an atomic cannon though.

Madam Curie died of radiation poisoning from work with Radium
but Tesla used X-Rays before anyone and he survived OK.

Yet that was the in the 40s so the Physicists didn't talk to anyone.
Any hint, I know we work from established sources, but old
wifes tales are good enough for me if you have any.

I always thought Germany developed the A bomb first.
A little help from German scientists and wala we give it to Japan.

So what about 1941 being the first A bomb detonation by Germany
in the Libyan desert. William Lyne likes that one.
Nothing ever happened in North Africa, kind of dumb for Hitler to
send Rommel there in the first place.

Thats about it, all I can think of about A bombs right now.
