  • “Abolish nuclear weapons”. Greenpeace. Retrieved 2.11.08 – “Over 2,000 nuclear weapons tests have left a legacy of global and regional contamination. People living near the test sites have suffered from cancers, stillbirths, miscarriages and other health effects — and are still suffering today. Many had to leave their hometown or island as it became too contaminated to live there.”
