Radioactive Waste Made Into Household Items?

The Problem: Radioactive waste from nuclear weapons and nuclear power are being “released” and used to make everyday household items, building materials, and more. “Standards” are being developed to dramatically increase the amount of radioactive material “recycled” into the marketplace.

Who is Doing This?

-Nuclear power industry and nuclear weapons contractors
-US Government: Dept. of Energy, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Environmental Protection Agency, US Department of Transportation
-Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation
-United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency
-European Commission
-Other nuclear nations’ governments and industries

What Can You Do?

Demand the US and International governments PROHIBIT RELEASE of radioactive wastes and materials from nuclear power and weapons into the marketplace. Contact your elected leaders and tell them to stop the nuclear industry and government agencies from poisoning us with ANY level of non-naturally occurring, involuntary or preventable radioactive contamination.
