Marshall Islands Warning Contaminated

The US nuclear test at Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands was 1000 times larger than the bombs that obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki.


"More than 60 years on, the fallout, literal and moral, from the test has not been cleaned up. Two generations of birth defects and cancers,
notably thyroid cancers and leukaemia, have ravaged the atolls' population, and women have given birth to babies that looked like
bunches of grapes or jellyfish."

"Speaking from his base in Santa Fe, New Mexico, he says the documents constitute "black and white" evidence of what has long been alleged and suspected -
that the contamination of the Marshalls atolls, far from being an unhappy accident, was a premeditated, minutely planned and cynically executed experiment
to establish the long-term effects of radiation poisoning on humans."

"Getting the story told and in the public view is hard," Horowitz says. "But it is an important story. There were thousands of Americans murdered by
radiation experiments, and the Marshall Islands story is one of a list of deliberate exposures of people that were done during the Cold War."
