Quotes

"This contamination could affect blood-forming cells in the bone marrow resulting later in leukemia. This provides a plausible explanation for the findings of the KiKK study published in 2008 that under-fives living near NPPs are considerably more at risk of cancer, particularly leukemia, than children living further away."

A conflict confined to one region of the world, as might occur between India and Pakistan, involving just 100 Hiroshima sized bombs, less than 0.5 percent of the world's nuclear arsenals, would cause worldwide climate disruption."

Pediatrician Dr. Alex Rosen "Nuclear bomb tests contaminate soils, while nuclear accidents and X-rays are a direct threat to our health. At a world summit this week, doctors called for more protection and awareness... "
