The scientists involved in thisproject conducted human and animal studies which generated a great deal of information about the biological effects of nuclear radiation (Malloy, 520). It’s been over 60 years since the bombing. Over this period, we have a gain in knowledge and scientific studies, we know how radiation can affect people for long periods of time. Since the event had taken place in 1946 that had allowed more time for new research, more documentation, and primary sources to develop.
