The most shocking part of this, for me, is at about 5:39 when he said that 3,000 US counties were affected by the fallout, and it caused a national spike in the number of cancers from 1950s to 1980s.

Makes me wonder how many other things we're being exposed to, right now? Is this why cancer rates are so much higher than they've ever been historically? How many other illnesses can we attribute to long-term radiation exposure?

People talk about removing the lead from gasoline, but I've never heard of this before...

There was that big radiation leak in L.A. too that no one was told about, in the 50s I think - much like the methane problem now.

Whistleblowers have also come forward to expose the little-known catastrophe, which occurred north of Los Angeles in 1959 and leaked over 300 times the allowable amount of radiation into surrounding neighborhoods. That contamination may now linked to up to a 60% increase in certain cancers in the area, but the government still refuses to acknowledge its colossal mistake. ~ https://theantimedia.com/the-worst-nuclear-disaster-in-us-history-that-youve-never-heard-about/ - posted: /s/Radiation/comments/u8b/the_worst_nuclear_disaster_in_us_history_that/

Is there a reason you and Jason promote this nuclear stuff so much? I see a bit of a narrative forming here. Mainly based around fear.

I just posted one video about it, it seemed pretty important because I learned about the amount of cancers it caused that I previously didn't know about. I don't really have a trend of posting about it though, personally

Well, sorry for calling you out then
