Children of Chernobyl

The Chernobyl disaster of 1986 resulted in a radioactive fallout which was 100 times greater than a nuclear bomb. To this day nobody really knows the true extent of how many people were truly affected by this but one of the few things that scientists can agree on is that children born in the surrounding areas will continue to be the primary victims.

Many children have become ill over the years but we also see residents defiantly returning to the exclusion zone which was once their home. Here they eat their own food which has been grown in highly radioactive soil. In this film we learn of how the government had been taking food from the area and selling it elsewhere even though it would have been contaminated by radiation.
