Default This is a crazy thing about Strontium 90.

This one little "invention" drives home how we sometimes just don't realize how effectively destructive we are to the planet, ourselves, our children, all the people we love, our health, and more.

When my father was born, The radioactive particle Strontium 90 did not exist on this planet. It's a byproduct of nuclear fission.
Today, there is not a living thing on this planet that does not contain Strontium 90. It is created in fission reactions, mostly spread as the result of fallout from nuclear testing, bombing, and nuclear disaster.

Mind ya, Strontium 90 a bone-seeker because it has an affinity to act like calcium and can exist most happily near calcium.
So it buries itself in our teeth and bones and bone marrow and builds over our lifetime.
It causes bone and tissue cancer, leukemia, genetic mutation, lasts our entire life, and can't be removed or hidden from.
Human saturation levels have increased around 350 times since 1950, and continue to rise with every drink of water or bite of food we take.

The Atomic Age was expected to pave the way to the Future Age. A time of prosperity unimaginable. It just didn't happen quite that way.
I'm not b1tchin', I'm just making the point that sometimes things sound too good to be true because they are.

Don't any of you dare take my word for any of this.
I sometimes make stuff like this up.

I’m not sure, Adam.
All I can really think is that Tom invented the wet spot.
Which is kinda cool.

I expect that you're right but life expectancy continues to increase:
