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/
