ABSTRACT
The article focuses on public information on nuclear revolution. Public is being let in on another secret of the nuclear revolution that is almost more ghastly in its implications than the Hydrogen bomb. Radiation from "atomsfor-peace" will shorten the life span of mankind and cause mutation of human genes unless exposure to radiation is rigidly controlled. "We are walking blind into the nuclear age," one scientist writes. The famous scientist Madame Curie died of slow radium poisoning. Harmless radiation has shortened the life expectancy of the average X-ray technician by three years in the U.S.
