“Medical Aspects of Nuclear Radiation” 1950 Propaganda Film

In Post-Apocalypse on March 15, 2010 at 9:58 am

Surviving post-nuclear radiation poisoning will be a real challenge. Understanding alpha, gamma and beta particles will be key to your survival. This film clears some of those questions up, and thankfully, also dispels some rumors about the post-apocalyptic world.  My favorite is when the narrator explains that radiation won’t create an “overabundance of freaks.” – which brings up the question –  how abundant are freaks now?

The film also seems to suggest that one of the worst parts about radiation is that you will lose your hair and the other guys at the office will call you “ol skinhead” or “chrome-dome.” But the narrator tells us to never fear, your hair will grow back. Whew!

Now ladies and gents, please turn off your cell phones, and enjoy the film! (Continued…)
