In 1963 the radioactivity in milk was so high, the public got alarmed. But the USAEC (today NRC) denied everything. Former President Kennedy held his speech and demanded the bomb test stop: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:President_Kennedy_signs_Nuclear_Test_Ban_Treaty,_07_October_1963.jpgIronically, the health authorities (former NRC: USAEC – president: Seaborg – who discovered Plutonium:) were particularly zealous advocates of nuclear bombs Supporters. Three months later, President Kennedy was shot.
President Kennedy, June, 1963: “the number of children and grandchildren with cancer in their bones, with leukemia in their blood, or with poison in their lungs might seem statistically small to some, in comparison with natural health hazards, but this is not a natural health hazard–and it is not a statistical issue. The loss of even one human life, or the malformation of even one baby–who may be born long after we are gone–should be of concern to us all. Our children and grandchildren are not merely statistics toward which we can be indifferent.” http://www.ratical.org/radiation/inetSeries/RB89.html
Where to go, Adam and Eve?
