I agree.. people have been getting sick since the beginning of time. There has been a lot of cases where people mysteriously end up with cancer and I think we both can agree after watching this video, that the radiation that follows can be a plausible blame. I'm not trying to push a conspiracy with all people being sick in the U.S. is because of these explosions. I simply just wanted to post this video so that someone could get a good idea how many times a nuke has been used and where.
"Whereas on January 27, 1951, the first nuclear weapons test in the United States commenced at a site known as the Nevada Proving Ground, located approximately 65 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada;
Whereas many Americans who, during the Cold War, worked and lived downwind from nuclear testing sites (referred to in this preamble as "downwinders") were adversely affected by the radiation exposure generated by the above ground nuclear weapons testing, and some of the downwinders sickened as a result of the radiation exposure;
Whereas the downwinders paid a high price for the development of a nuclear weapons program for the benefit of the United States; and
Whereas the downwinders deserve to be recognized for the sacrifice they have made for the defense of the United States: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the Senate-
(1) designates January 27, 2012, as a national day of remembrance for many Americans who, during the Cold War, worked and lived downwind from nuclear testing sites and were adversely affected by the radiation exposure generated by the above ground nuclear weapons testing; and
(2) encourages the people of the United States to support and participate in appropriate ceremonies, programs, and other activities to commemorate January 27, 2012."
