Damage from the Atomic Bombing

 B-7 Damage Caused by Radiation


Radiation from the atomic bomb pierces through the human body and destroys many cells. The severity of the injuries varies according to the amount of radiation they were exposed to, but out of the people who were within one kilometer of the hypocenter, many of those who were free of injuries still passed away. That is how severe the destructive power of the radiation was. The harm caused to the human body does not go away with the explosion. Radiation causes harm deep within the body and awakens various symptoms as time goes on. The suffering from radiation disorders that began that summer still does not end.
