Did you know that there was a partial nuclear meltdown in the Los Angeles area in 1959? Half a century later, the resulting contamination still hasn’t been cleaned up!

If a partial nuclear meltdown wasn’t bad enough, there were tens of thousands of rocket tests at the same site, producing widespread toxic contamination that also hasn’t been cleaned up.

The Santa Susana Field Laboratory located in the hills above the San Fernando and Simi Valleys, was the site of extensive nuclear reactor work and rocket testing lasting for decades. It ha left it grossly polluted with radiological and chemical contaminants. In addition to a partial nuclear meltdown and other nuclear accidents, there were approximately thirty thousand rocket tests conducted there. —FROM Physicians for Social Responsibility/Los Angeles http://org2.salsalabs.com/o/5393/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=15435#message
