Many people died instantly when atomic bombs fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II. Immediately afterwards, many more died of radiation poisoning. Several years later, more were lost to leukemia and organ cancers. Recently, a rising number of bomb survivors have developed a second type of leukemia called MDS. After long years of study, researchers have learned that bomb victims sustained genetic damage from radiation that implanted a number of “time bombs” inside their bodies. MDS is believed to be caused by genes that were cut apart by radiation and took many decades to manifest as illness. This program closely follows doctors in Hiroshima and Nagasaki who have worked with bomb survivors to discover the mechanisms of radiation-caused illness. Latest information expose the endless assault on health that has been endured by victims for 68 years, highlighting the horror of atomic bomb radiation.
