How Nuclear Pollution is deteriorating our planet and us

 

Pollution is defined as the introduction of contaminants into the environment. Pollution causes instability and disorder in the ecosystem.Polluting elements harm physical elements and living beings. These polluting elements are either created by our sheer negligence or are naturally existent.

 

Nuclear pollution is a type of pollution that is considered the most dangerous among all kinds of pollution. The issue of nuclear pollution became popular after the World War II due to the use of nuclear warfare. It is said that Japan has faced the worst nuclear accident in the history of mankind. Numerous nuclear experiments and weapons were made and tested taking a toll on the human health. International disasters like Hiroshima and Nagasaki attack, Amoco Cadiz oil spill, the great smog in London and Bhopal Gas Tragedy have caused catastrophe for the people.

 

Radioactive contaminants or nuclear pollutants are byproducts of scientific, military and industrial nuclear experiments. These elements can be liquid, gaseous or solid wastes from nuclear fuel reactors and radioactive ores. Chemical byproducts and improper disposal of nuclear wastes cause nuclear pollution. Gamma radiation and burning of oil and natural gas cause radioactive emissions which release more radioactive wastes in the ecosystem.

 

Nuclear pollutants are not biodegradable and cannot be used due to their harmful effects on human beings. They cannot be disposed off carelessly because once they pollute any part of earth, water or air, it cannot be renewed by any means. The harmful effects of nuclear pollution are skin irritations, rashes, improper fetal development, DNA mutation, birth defects, cancer or genetic damage. These are some physical conditions which cannot be medically treated.

 

Thus it is necessary to control, regulate and monitor nuclear pollution. By minimizing harmful emissions environment can be managed easily. The Clean Air Act of 1956, the Green Act, forums, acts and petitions are devised to create awareness among people and to educate them about harmful effects.
