Inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

YouTube Link

This SciShow video presents some interesting facts about Chernobyl and the area surrounding it, including a discussion of the plant life, large wildlife population and chemical makeup.

In spite of the 28 years that have passed, the danger to all forms of life has not diminished. In some ways it continues to rise. An example would be when risk projections of human cancer cases due to the accident are factored in (an estimated 16,000 cases of thyroid cancer and 25,000 cases of non-specific type cancer by 2065, according to a peer-reviewed report in the International Journal of Cancer).
