Radiation and Children: The Ignored Victims
Hundreds of U.S. industrial sites that generate nuclear electricity and manufacture nuclear weapons
regularly release radiation to our air, water and soil via the burial of wastes. These same industries are
now lobbying for permission from government to release radioactive materials for re-use in consumer
products. There is no safe radiation dose. Whether the release is accidental or allowed is
irrelevant. This dramatic surge in the release and distribution of radiation, makes it ever more clear
that we do not need a nuclear accident to cause disease.
