    Don't think I've seen that one, will check it out.

    The danger would come from ingesting radioactive particles.

    This guy is a Brit who speaks fluent Russian his travel vlogs are top notch as he travels to parts of the old Soviet Union most tourists never go. Hopefully Punty won't mind me posting these in here. What most do not realize is that the most of the exclusion zone is in Belarus. In this series Bald goes into the zone and actually finds people living there...





    Meet Kolya....





    These vids are pretty amazing. Also check out his main channel lots more great stuff there.

    Some good vids there. The radiation map of where the caesium fell is interesting. I remember at the time the most affected areas in teh UK were the uplands due to rainfall, that meant the hill farmers, sheep farmers mainly could not sell their meat or wool for years.
