In this video, Cindy Folkers, Radiation and Health Hazard Specialist for Beyond Nuclear, reviews the nuclear fuel chain and its impact on human health, particularly the health of women, children and pregnancy. She summarizes how radiation damages cells, what studies reveal about living in contaminated environments, and how radiation exposure recommendations fail to protect us.

This presentation was given at Unseen and Everywhere – RADIATION: Fracking to Chernobyl, Fukushima, Indian Point, which was part of the Sierra Club NYC Group Sustainability Series. The event was hosted on May 11, 2022.
