NJ Nuclear

Atomic Garden State

The recent earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, which damaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant, has people the world over worrying about possible radioactive material being spread across the globe by getting caught in jet stream winds. Prior to this tragedy, when the Japanese leaked radioactive material, we ended up with your run-of-the-mill Godzilla. But here in real life, radiation is extremely dangerous. Aside from the immediate effect of exposure, such as burns, hair loss and the general liquefaction of your insides, heightened radiation can lead to spikes in cancer rates for years and can render the entire affected area inhabitable for decades, even centuries. The Soviet Union unfortunately demonstrated this to the world in 1986 with the Chernobyl disaster.
