The Chernobyl disaster has turned the town name into the common name. Decades after the accident, the neighborhood of Chernobyl still retain a high background radiation - making surprising information that people still live here. Almost four hundred old men decided to return to their homes inside the restricted area. In addition, thousands of people work at the plant and forced to spend two weeks in the surrounding area. Nearby villages such as Ivanovka also do not stand abandoned, although the radiation level there is 30 times higher than normal.
Ozersk remains one of the few closed cities of Russia. The census of 2010 82,000 people are listed - eighty-two thousand continue to build their lives almost on a nuclear burial ground. During the Cold War a plant "Mayak" was built there and were operating a long time. Thousands jobs, a stable salary, quarterly bonuses - and weapons-grade plutonium, waste from the manufacture of which were buried and merged throughout the region.
The coast of the Caspian Sea can be considered a paradise for unpretentious, loving calm and measured rest tourists. Ramsar town has the glory of a comfortable seaside resort, which attracts people from all over the country. Few stops by the fact of twenty-fold excess of background radiation, which boasts the area Talesh Mahalleh. Here, at the time, was a real dump radioactive waste - the government did not even bother to dig burial.
The radiation background of Guarapari is kept within the limits, if we do not take measurements on one of its popular beaches. It is covered with so-called "death spots": the radiation level is extremely high due to the erosion of the coastal mountains. Local breeds are well endowed with monazite containing uranium and thorium.
Approximately the same situation among the residents of the Chinese Yangjiang forced to coexist with monocyte hills. Sand caused by soil erosion, has been used by a local plant for the production of bricks. An entire city district was built of it, and monocyte that is eventually disintegrated in the walls on radium, actinium and radon, turned it into one of the worst places on the planet.
