Radiation Hot Particles Found In Community Around Hanford and More --

More than 40 mothers have lost babies to a rare and deadly birth defect in three Central Washington counties since 2010, but the cause remains unknown. Why haven’t health officials done more to find answers?

Why indeed --- declaring the area to be a sacrifice zone is bad for business.
Sally Garcia still doesn’t know what went wrong with her baby.
When the tiny girl was born on May 25, 2012, she weighed 3 pounds, 6 ounces, measured 19 inches long — and was missing most of her brain and skull.
“I hoped that when she was born she would be perfect and nothing would be wrong,” recalled Garcia, 26, of Prosser, about an hour outside of Yakima. “They pulled her out and my mom started to cry. That’s how I knew she wasn’t OK.”

Marco Kaltofen, a nuclear forensics expert and a professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, said he collected samples from communities outside three lab sites across the nation and found a wide variation of particle sizes. He said they could deliver lifelong doses that exceed allowable federal standards if inhaled
