Buffalo Ranks Ist In Many Different Cancers And Other Serious Diseases

toxic waste barrels

Following World War II the history of the Atomic age was born.

America dropped two atom bombs on Japan.  These two bombs destroyed Japan’s ability to continue fighting and so the war ended soon after the dropping of the two bombs.

Both Germany and America were racing to develop the first atom bomb. We developed it first.

What is so dangerous about the radioactive waste which the Atom bomb brings with it?

Radioactive waste is waste that contains radioactive material. Radioactive waste is usually a by-product of nuclear power generation and other applications of nuclear fission or nuclear technology, such as research and medicine. Radioactive waste is hazardous to most forms of life and the environment, and is regulated by government agencies in order to protect human health and the environment.

Radioactivity naturally decays over time, so radioactive waste has to be isolated and confined in appropriate disposal facilities for a sufficient period until it no longer poses a threat. The time radioactive waste must be stored for depends on the type of waste and radioactive isotopes. It can range from a few days for highly radioactive isotopes to millions of years for slightly radioactive ones. Current major approaches to managing radioactive waste have been segregation and storage for short-lived waste, near-surface disposal for low and some intermediate level waste, and deep burial or partitioning / transmutation for the high-level waste.

Radioactivity waste was put into barrels in the northern part of Amherst.  The barrels began to leak and covered the land past the Amherst Gun club on Maple Rd., our golf course and nearly all the land in northern Amherst.

*The Auduban golf course is loaded with nuclear waste seepage as well as arsenic and other materials poisonous to humans.

Development in Amherst is covering up land which has nuclear waste under it.

*Buffalo has the highest rate of breast cancer in New York.
