Radiation Damage: Monkeys, Birds, Humans, Brains, and Scientists

Birds, Brains, and ROSATOM Chernobyl Radiation:

“Impaired brain development is linked to oxidative stress because of the high lipid content of brains. Large-brained individuals must be capable of continuously supplying the brain with high levels of oxygen for neuronal ion pumping, synthesis of neurotransmitters and protection from toxic compounds. This makes brain maintenance a highly oxidizing process that requires large amounts of antioxidants, in particular glutathione. Therefore, any environment with low antioxidant levels and/or high rates of use of antioxidants will provide a challenge to normal brain development.” http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0016862

Humans, Brains and US Reactors Radiation:

“mental retardation in children exposed to radiation during the fifth to 15th weeks of their mother’s pregnancy. Radiation kills brain cells, causing both an underdeveloped brain [microcephaly] and mental retardation” https://ratical.org/radiation/NAvictims.html
