Uranium Mines Dot Navajo Land, Neglected and Still Perilous

CAMERON, Ariz. — “In the summer of 2010, a Navajo cattle rancher named Larry Gordy stumbled upon an abandoned uranium mine in the middle of his grazing land and figured he had better call in the feds. Engineers from the Environmental Protection Agency arrived a few months later, Geiger counters in hand, and found radioactivity levels that buried the needles on their equipment.” Read more at;http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/01/us/uranium-mines-dot-navajo-land-neglected-and-still-perilous.html

Bottom line, native peoples all over the world continue to be exposed to high levels of toxic radiation such as radon, uranium and radium both by inhaling the radioactive dust and by direct exposure to exterior radiation from the exposed ore that is blowing around with the wind. 
Radon and radium as well as uranium are known to cause bone, liver, breast and lung cancer.

It has been proven that these radioactive elements cause harm as well as deaths, because Congress passed the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act, which was enacted to pay for the health consequences and deaths caused by uranium mining. So far, the program has granted “$1.5 billion for 23,408 approved claims since it was enacted in 1990.”
