From uranium mining that has poisoned indigenous communities and the environment, to the risk of accidental or intentional nuclear weapons detonation, to the health and security hazards of nuclear power and radioactive waste – the entire nuclear cycle presents threats to health that are uniquely harmful and potentially catastrophic to our very existence.
The massive and deadly force of nuclear weapons and high toxicity and long-lived nature of radionuclides make health protective nuclear policies of vital importance.
PSR-LA’s Nuclear Threats program brings the credible voice of physicians to nuclear policy debates. We work to build awareness about nuclear threats and organize healthcare professionals and the public to advocate for health protective nuclear policies.
