Enjoyed your article. I couldn’t agree more with you. We need more individuals educated about radiation who can reach the masses. I learned by getting radiated unintentionally. Sometimes it felt like I was being microwaved. Radiation is a very fascinating occurrence. It is never boring and always interesting.
Fondly, Dawn M Junkins

I am glad that EPA views pollution from uranium mines and mills as something important that needs to be addressed. The issue of spent fuel rods and out of commission nuclear generator cores is still a very important one in need of a permanent disposal solution. The facility that takes this waste for permenant disposal will have to be both well regulated and well guarded. Nuclear plants will need to close if for no other reason than the temporary solution of storing spent fuel rods on site in holding ponds is rapidly running out of space at the plants. I can also remember the 1960s and 1970s going to school in elementary and junior high school. We had duck and cover drills all the time. My junior high school was across the street from a fire station, and they tested the air raid siren a couple of times a year. I’m glad the Cold War is over. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

A noble area of expertise. I am currently reading the book Uranium by Tom Zoellner. Much of the basic information, I already knew, but to know how strongly the government insisted on and approved widescale open nuclear testing in the late 40s and 50s is quite amazing. I still remember growing up with “duck and cover” and those black and yellow signs.
