Unreported Deaths, Child Cancer & Radioactive Meat: The Untold Story of Chernobyl

Following a mysterious nuclear accident in Russia that left seven dead, we look back at the 1986 nuclear disaster in Chernobyl.

It sent a cloud of radioactive fallout into Russia, Belarus and over a large portion of Europe, but the death toll from that period in time remains unknown.

Chernobyl is considered the worst nuclear accident in history, but Kate Brown, an MIT professor of science, technology and society, says much of what we understand about the disaster is inaccurate.

Her new book, Manual for Survival: A Chernobyl Guide to the Future, chronicles the devastating and underreported impact of radiation on tens of thousands in the Soviet Union that went unreported for decades.

Brown says, “After about five years of research, I realized that much of what we know about Chernobyl is just either incomplete or fully incorrect.”
