Annual deer hunt still takes place at the US nuclear waste clean-up site, Savannah River Site. People actually pay to hunt deer which may be contaminated with radioactive materials, whereas at the UK’s Sellafield nuclear site they pay someone to kill the deer. Deer have long been used as bioindicators to assess nuclear contamination.

Why settle for regular CO2 when you can have radioactive CO2 from nuclear power stations and waste? Carbon 14 is emitted by nuclear reactors on a routine basis. It appears to be emitted as radioactive CO2, but could also react with oxygen to form CO2. Carbon is the foundation of life itself, as is water. Tritium is radioactive hydrogen which becomes radioactive water. Carbon and water, the very foundations of life, become radioactive due to the nuclear industry. Cesium is a potassium mimic and potassium is required for nerve transmission. Plutonium can enter the cells along with iron. These are all gifts in the German sense of poison. And polonium has been called the perfect poison.
Whereas, Sellafield Nuclear site, in the UK, apparently paid someone to kill deer stuck in…
