MANUAL FOR SURVIVAL: A CHERNOBYL GUIDE TO THE FUTURE
Checkpoint - Border - US - Canada - American
At a checkpoint on the border between the U.S. and Canada in 2017, American homeland security agents stopped an articulated lorry for a routine check.
Running a Geiger counter over its trailer, they were alarmed to discover a ‘radiating mass’ was pulsing inside. This could be the border patrol’s worst nightmare: a ‘dirty’ nuclear terrorist bomb.

But when they inspected the contents, all they found was fruit. The radiation came from a crateload of blueberries, picked in Ukraine.
Since official U.S. government thresholds for permissible radiation in fruit are surprisingly high, the cargo was deemed safe and the lorry was waved on its way. But some of the blueberries were in fact way above official levels and therefore not safe at all.

To understand why is to discover that 70 years of atomic tests and nuclear accidents have flooded markets around the world with toxic food.
Kate Brown’s painstaking investigation into the Chernobyl disaster and its aftermath might be the most plausible conspiracy theory you’ll ever read.
Manual - Survival - Presidents - Chiefs - Government
Manual For Survival argues that presidents, military chiefs, government mandarins and official scientists have all failed to face a basic truth for decades: nuclear radiation is really poisonous.
That ought to be obvious to anyone, but, rather than deal with the facts, those in charge have buried their heads in the sand and refused to take any responsibility.
Pretence - Hiroshima - Bombs - Japan - End
The pretence began with Hiroshima, and the first of two atomic bombs dropped on Japan at the end of World War II.
Concerned that nuclear radiation would be condemned as a type of chemical warfare, and thus morally repugnant, American General Leslie Groves, head of the Manhattan Project, which developed the atomic bomb, told journalists that it was simply a very powerful conventional weapon which inflicted serious burns over a wide...
