The seepage of radioactive and toxic byproducts into vital water resources pose grave health
dangers. Long-term exposure to such radioactive materials could cause heart disease and cancer.
Remains Hazardous For 240,000 Years
Radioactive waste is a by product of nuclear power plants and these high-level wastes are hazardous
because of their high radiation levels that are capable of producing fatal doses within moments of
exposure. Greenpeace examines the long the shelf life of this waste.
Nuclear Waste - No Way Out
Yucca Mountain is the site of a $58 billion government project that would bury 77,000 tons
of highly radioactive waste from nuclear power plants across the United States. But many are concerned
and opposed to this improper "disposal" of the lethal waste, especially considering the long radioactive
lifespan of this waste.
