To mark the 30th and 5th anniversaries of the Chernobyl and Fukushima disasters, Greenpeace commissioned reviews of scientific literature examining radioactive contamination and health effects linked with the accidents.

This report includes the results from Greenpeace radiation experts who conducted fieldwork to document the contamination of environment from survivors in Russia, Ukraine and Japan.

In light of the social, health and environmental scars caused by Fukushima and Chernobyl, the most responsible way forward is to abandon nuclear power and shift to safer and cleaner energy options.
