We are grateful for logistic help during our visits to Ukraine from O. Bondarenko, I. Chizhevsky, A. Erhardt and A. Litvinchuk. We received funding from the University of South Carolina School of the Environment, Bill Murray and the Samuel Freeman Charitable Trust, NATO and the Fulbright Program to conduct our research.
When we first starting going to Chernobyl the prevailing dogma was, ‘This is a low-dose scenario and the plants and animals are thriving and really this wasn’t dangerous.’
“And then we started finding all these consequences for the birds. And then later, the same consequences in rodents — mice and voles. And we’re finding the same things we found in the birds — increased cataracts, smaller brains, genetic damage. So yes, we worry about it more now.”
