The Lessons of Fukushima and Chernobyl Briefing Book April 25, 2011

The 25th Anniversary of the nuclear reactor accident in Chernobyl on the Belarus-Ukraine border serves to remind us of the dangers to public health posed by nuclear power. The importance of reacquainting ourselves with the ongoing difficulties at the Chernobyl disaster site and surrounding lands are underscored by the March 2011 disaster at the Daiichi nuclear power plant complex near Fukushima Japan.

Physicians for Social Responsibility provides this Briefing Book to help educate the public, the press and policymakers of the public health issues regarding nuclear reactor accidents.
