Nurses Tend to Victims of Atomic Bombs in Japan Ca. 1946Unknown - 1946
Beyond the understanding that it would result in large numbers of casualties, not much was known about the long-term effects of nuclear radiation when the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. U.S. officials confiscated Japanese videos of bomb victims, and began to study survivors to determine how their bodies responded to the exposure to radiation. Scientists also studied the soil in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and charted the rate that plants grew back in areas decimated by the bomb.
