Thanks for this posting this Rogue. When you look at most of the places where uranium is in abundance in Australia, the wild life and also the vegetation is looking very healthy. I still believe the scientist are lagging way behind in the knowledge of radiation, especially in the understanding of uranium and the dotting of such materials.


Are we to understand that animals experience radio active rays different from humans?

Yeah some wildlife is surviving there. When I visited Prypyet I noticed that there were insects buzzing around but no birds!

Most of the wildlife there are migratory animals just passing through. We carried a Dosimeter with us and when it was put close to the ground, it went off the scale!!

The deposits of Uranium have little effect Star as they are all part of the background radiation we evolved with. The biggest problem is the elements that are created in the explosion. Especially Caesium 137 which forms a very fine dust that people and animals ingest on their food or by breathing. It can and does produce cancers.

That's very interesting Tim, do you think the animals around Chernobyl are responding to the absence of human beings alone. Why are they doing so well if radiation is at un normal levels?

No competition with humans Star. There are a few old people who have stayed on there because they have nowhere else to go. But no young ones there.

A hunter shot a deer near there and when it was gutted he found cancerous tumours on it's entrails. Deer have a short life span and so that was a surprise.

I believe they found the same thing with wolves in the area as well...while they looked fine, their innards were pretty messed up.

Its probably worth noting that the same thing is being found in wild monkeys around Fukushima.
