10 Most Radioactive Places on Earth


As a reader commented, no quantitative information to provide any idea of the scope these dangers. Nevertheless, the Chernobyl and Fukushima “accidents” are documented and provide a great deal of basis for concern.
Concern that is not evident in at or in any government level.
Concern that is conspicuous by its absence from the mass media, who seem to have lost their drive for investigative journalism. (Too much power and influence form above?).
No matter how dangerous this source of death and ill-health, however real, tends to be over-shadowed by our obsession with wealth and control and annihilation of any obstacles in the way.
Nevertheless, awareness of any dangers to our health should not be obscured from the public, in a decent and intelligent civilization.
