Radiation found in seven European countries
Dangerous radioactive particles have been detected in France, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Norway, Finland and Spain and scientists don’t know where they’re coming from.
The radiation, albeit in low levels, is the same as that caused by a nuclear disaster or atomic bomb blast.
Traces of the cancer-causing Iodine-13 were discovered in January, but the public was kept in the dark. The highest number of particles was found in Poland.
They may be coming from Eastern Europe, possibly leaking from nuclear reactors or medical facilities or from Russian nuclear submarines, scientists speculate, but they have not located the source.
