US Nuclear Disaster Could Be Worse than Fukushima, Experts Warn via News wire

The authorities are underestimating the risk posed by old nuclear plants in the United States and ignoring the safety watchdog data.

( — May 29, 2017) — The US has been underestimating the safety risk from its nuclear facilities that could lead to a  worse accident than the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Science Daily reports.

According to a new study, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NCR) is ignoring the facts indicating that a single incident can lead to a major disaster.

In a study published on May 26 in the Science magazine, researchers from Princeton University and the Union of Concerned Scientists warned that nuclear spent fuel fire at one site can lead to “trillion-dollar consequences” and terrific scenarios worse than those caused by the explosion and the leakage of radioactive water from reactors at Fukushima, which was the biggest nuclear disaster of this century so far.

Hypothetically, fire would contaminate an area larger than New Jersey and force mass relocations, according to the study.

The researchers simulated a scenario according to which spilled fuel catches fire at Peach Bottom nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania, causing a domino effect and the relocation of some eight million people, while also inducing $2 trillion in damages.


The researchers proposed that spent fule  be transfered to dry storage casks after it is cooled in pools for around five years, but the NRC, which has previously considered such measures, decided the move would be too costly.

One of the study authors, Frank von Hippel, directly blames the NRC for downgrading the potential risk of fire spreading through nuclear facilities.


At least three major nuclear incidents were registered in the US last year, but the media withheld the information from the public, acording to, the website of an independent and investigative news organization.

  42. testogen south africa says

    Testogen is an all-natural ingredient testosterone level booster that has been manufactured with aging men in mind. Research has indicated that testosterone levels in men peak at puberty and then start to drop as they age from as early, sometimes as the mid-twenties. This is a cause of concern, and ways had to be found to restore these diminishing hormonal levels. TestoGen is one of the many testosterone boosting products you can buy today. TestoGen increases testosterone levels in men without any of the harmful chemicals that other products contain. TestoGen also came out on top compared to all other testosterone boosting products in our buyers’ guide. So, if you want to learn more about this product, how it can help you, or know why you should try it, keep reading.

    TestoFuel is an all-natural nutritional supplement by Roar Ambition that claims to use scientifically proven and all natural ingredients to increase testosterone production. We’ll get to the details of the TestoFuel ingredients shortly, but I can give away at this stage, that my dietician has confirmed that everything in this product is indeed natural. Now, testosterone gets a bad name as it’s always associated with alpha males, aggressive behavior, and illegal doping scandals. But the truth couldn’t be further from the truth, at least when we’re talking about natural ranges.

    Prime Male is a natural male enhancement supplement that has been formulated especially for men who are searching for ways to boost up their testosterone levels. After the age of 30, the production of testosterone in the body reduces drastically and important measures need to be taken to keep your t-levels in check. Low testosterone levels can hamper your sexual appetite, make you feel tired, and deteriorate your mental health as well. You may even experience difficulty in getting an erection, hair loss, and constant mood swings. Prime Male claims to provide a solution to all these problems caused by low t-levels.
