Children of Chernobyl parents have no higher number of DNA mutations

Study was one of the first to evaluate alterations in human mutation rates in response to manmade disasterFor decades popular culture has portrayed babies born to the survivors of nuclear accidents as mutants with additional heads or at high risk of cancers. But now a study of children whose parents were exposed to radiation from the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 suggests they carry no more DNA mutations than children born to any other parents.The study, published in Science, is one of the first to...

American Honey Is Radioactive From Decades of Nuclear Bomb Testing

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Motherboard: The world's nuclear powers have detonated more than 500 nukes in the atmosphere. These explosions were tests, shows of force to rival nations, and proof that countries such as Russia, France, and the U.S. had mastered the science of the bomb. The world's honey has suffered for it. According to a new study published in Nature Communications, honey in the United States is full of fallout lingering from those atmospheric nuclear tests. For the...

International research teams explore genetic effects of Chernobyl radiation

Researchers utilized genomic tools to investigate potential health effects of exposure to ionizing radiation, a known carcinogen, as a result of the 1986 Chernobyl accident. One study found no evidence that genetic changes associated with radiation exposure are passed to children, while the second study documented the genetic changes in the tumors of people who developed thyroid cancer after being exposed as children or fetuses to the radiation released by the accident. Findings are being publis...

Go green, go nuclear

This Thursday, Earth Day, politicians and activists will shout more about “the climate crisis.” I don’t think it’s a crisis. COVID-19, malaria, exploding debt, millions of poor children dying from diarrhea — those are genuine crises. But global warming may become a real problem, so it’s particularly absurd that Earth Day’s activists rarely mention the form of energy that could most quickly reduce greenhouse gases: nuclear power. When France converted to nuclear, it created the world’s fastest re...

US honey still contains traces of the radioactive fallout of nuclear bomb testing in the 50s and 60s, study finds

150-megaton thermonuclear explosion, Bikini Atoll, March 1 1954. Ann Ronan Pictures/Print Collector/Getty Images Honey from the Eastern US shows traces of a cesium-137, a radioactive element. A study traced this back to nuclear bomb testing that took place decades ago. There is no risk to human health, but the honey can help locate "hot spots" of soil contamination. See more stories on Insider's business page. US honey still carries traces of cesium-137 from atom bomb testing during...

New York is about to spew a lot more carbon into the air, thanks to Andrew Cuomo and anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s anti-nuclear crusade

These 2013 file photos show New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, left, in Albany, N.Y. and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in Dallas, Texas. AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez Andrew Cuomo and the anti-vaccine activist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. pushed to close the Indian Point nuclear power plant. But without nuclear energy, New York needs to burn a lot more fossil fuels to produce electricity. This anti-science fearmongering in the name of environmentalism will, ironically, lead to more carbon emissions spewed into the...

Allogeneic adipose-derived stem cells can mitigate TBI-induced acute radiation syndrome

Nuclear power offers an efficient, reliable way to provide energy to large populations - as long as all goes well. Accidents involving nuclear reactors such as those that took place in 1986 at Chernobyl and at Fukushima Daiichi after the March 2011 tsunami raise major concerns about what happens if the worst occurs and large numbers of people are simultaneously exposed to high levels of radiation.

Family violence can be an issue in immigration and refugee law, employment law, corporate law, criminal law, landlord-tenant law, and real estate law, to name a few.[1] When family violence is ...
