UPDATE

Chernobyl zone shows decline in biodiversity




The largest wildlife census of its kind conducted in Chernobyl has revealed that mammals are declining in the exclusion zone surrounding the nuclear power plant

Bad for mammals = bad for humans.

In fact linking from that report are others showing decline in insects and birds. So thats pretty much the whole eco cycle screwed then
