One of the worst ecological disasters of our time, the accident at the Chernobyl’ nuclear power plant in the Ukrainian republic of the now defunct Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) produced a plume of radioactive debris that drifted over parts of the western USSR, Eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, contaminating large areas of the Ukrainian, Belorussian, and Russian republics of the USSR, and resulting in the evacuation and resettlement of roughly about two hundred thousand people.

A 1994 article from National Geographic titled “Living With the Monster” discussed the accident, expressed that the effects were major and noticed in areas far removed from Ukraine, and stated that up to three thousand liquidators received more than the “acceptable” onetime dose of 25 REM, and about four hundred who received up to 75 REM or more, multiplying the chances that they will have cancer in the future.

Scary stuff, all of that; but how real exactly is it?

A recent release of the World Health Organization actually poured some water on all the fire. In probing the effects of the Chernobyl disaster that took place two decades ago, scientists actually now have revealed that there are certain low degrees of radioactivity that are not as harmful as they were once thought to be. A research was carried out that eventually described an existing level of toleration or limit of radioactive exposure that was considered relatively safe such that anything below the limit is also considered safe.

Mike Repacholi of the World Health Organization radiation program actually expects that there might be some of debate stirred up over nuclear issues with regard to this. He iterated that there are already hot topics of discussion in this regard in several countries, and in response, his exact words were: “People hear radiation, they think of the atomic bomb and they think of thousands of deaths. They think that the Chernobyl reactor accident was equivalent to the atomic bombing in Japan, which is absolutely untrue. We know that there were low doses of radiation received by a large number of people. We don’t want to minimize the effects but we also know that the fear and anxiety about radiation caused a huge number of health complaints that have overloaded the healthcare system.”

So does this mean that the disaster was by no means a threat, and that the so-called Chernobyl’s radiation effects on prostate cancer are just a figment of the imagination? Probably not! Ever since the incidence, there has been a noted and reported higher incidence of thyroid cancer amongst children in the region. However, nothing more has been recorded. Especially considering the fact that average men of the time are by now reaching into the age range that puts them at higher risk of this disease, one can only be not surprised when they turn up with the disease. But no, available evidence at this time does not support the theory that Chernobyl birthed more prostate cancerous tumor for men of the United Kingdom and Eastern Europe.
