While it takes an emotional stance, it is factual to my understanding.
EPA recently decided to partially remediate the rad waste...

Wonder how much of this documentary is fact and how much is not. If there

Director Rebecca Cammisa’s intense documentary, *Atomic Homefront*, is a
profoundly emotive dive into the unintended outgrowths of the atomic age.

extraordinary rates of various cancers, pulmonary di - wepons before
