while trawling the net i came across this damning report on the radiation fallout problem which can be dated back to early in the 1900's..

The public face of the government's radiation/health effects response was to go to Japan and create the "Lifespan Study" from the Hiroshima and NagasakiA-bomb survivors, though no useful data recording system was put into place until 1955, tens years after the bombs and long enough down the road to ensure the most vulnerable victims had died. As for American vets and citizens subjected to fallout, they're still debating today how to reconstruct the dose estimates of exposures that occurred 50 years ago and more. Ironically, Dr.Gofman always supported the building and testing of nuclear weapons though his work helped to prove that there is no such thing as a "safe" amount of radioactivity.


In 1972 a Canadian nuclear scientist discovered the "non-linear dose response", or the "Petkau effect" named for him, which showed that low levels of radiation where capable of causing disease to an even greater extent than higher levels. For a while in the 70s, enough Americans and Europeans rallied in a No Nukes movement to help get the message out, creating interference for the nuclear power plant industry, but ultimately insufficient to counter the forces of time and propaganda. Among disorders caused by radiation, count memory loss. Seriously, folks.

Deadly Nuclear Radiation Hazards USA



follow following link to see a map of the U.S's most deadly radiation hazards
irradiated locations..

the following link lists the radiation hazards by state..
irradiated states.

the following is a short list of the new york sites.. i repeat (just a short list of the new york sites alone..
