The U.S. military has developed non-toxic, ultra-strength cleaners that could be used in the aftermath of a terrorist attack.
The peroxide-based "green" decontaminants are tough enough to get rid of nerve gas, mustard gas, radioactive isotopes and anthrax, report U.S. military scientists in the American Chemistry Society's Industrial Engineering and Chemistry Research, a bimonthly journal.

Just because there is a terrorism drill doesn't mean there is going to be an attack any more than a tornado drill means there is going to be a tornado.
Public perception of risks For the majority involved in an RDD incident, the radiation health risks (i.e. increased probability of developing cancer later in life due to radiation exposure) are small, comparable to the health risk from smoking five packages of cigarettes or eating ice cream on a daily basis. The fear of radiation is not always logical. Although the exposure might be minimal, many people find radiation exposure especially frightening because it is something they cannot see or feel, and it therefore becomes an unknown source of danger. Dealing with public fear may prove the greatest challenge in case of an RDD event. Policy, science and media may inform the public about the real danger and thus reduce the possible psychological and economic effects. Statements from the U.S. government after 9/11 may have contributed unnecessarily to the public fear of a dirty bomb. When United States Attorney General John Ashcroft on June 10, 2002, announced the arrest of José Padilla, allegedly plotting to detonate such a weapon, he said: [A] radioactive "dirty bomb" (...) spreads radioactive material that is highly toxic to humans and can cause mass death and injury.
