Studying Life in the Shadow of Nuclear Plants


This article helped my eyes continue to open to the dangers and concerns incorporated with nuclear plants. We have all seen in the media the issues with natural disasters and their effects on cultures that use nuclear power as a large part of their energy production(Japan).  This article brakes away from this and into the reality that we have all been concerned with from the introduction of nuclear plants, radiation damage to humans.  They discuss in this article personal accounts of people who grew up around these plants and were diagnosed with cancer.  This is a good way to awaken your mind to the issues we truly face when incorporating nuclear power into everyday life.
