Hosted by

Whether the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were justified has been debated for decades. And the long-term effects of the bombings have been studied for years by scientists. For decades, teams of American and Japanese scientists have collaborated to gather information about radiation and its health impacts. Their research has formed the basis for radiation exposure guidelines for medical technicians and nuclear power plant workers all over the world.
