Bloody hell! That was disturbing last night.
I was looking at the deaths attributed to the event and they range between 54 by the blast to up to 90′000 from subsequent cancer and leukaemia. It’s hard to directly proportion all of cancers in the affected areas to the accident but I’d like to see the raw data on the spike of cancer related deaths from it.
Im no expert on this stuff but I suspect in years to come we as a race will realise that we have been killing people with cancer by introducing or not taking something simple from our lifestyles. Not just stuff obvious like Nuclear reactors exploding but something like microwave ovens, plastic usage in food/drink containers etc… But highly toxic nuclear fuel melting its way into the water table and food chain isn’t going to help either….
