- China has conducted about 45 successful nuclear tests between 1964 and 1996.
- More than one million people are estimated to be at risk of deadly diseases like leukemia, and cancer
China has always been known as a dictator. It is impossible to stop whatever work he wants to do. But this time the cruel face of China has come in front of the world. A report has claimed that about two lakh people lost their lives due to the radiation generated by the nuclear test conducted by China.
The report said China conducted about 45 successful nuclear tests between 1964 and 1996, in which 1,94,000 people died from acute radiation exposure.
Writing in The National Interest magazine, Peter Susseau said that estimates suggest that 1,94,000 people have died from acute radiation exposure, while more than one million people are estimated to be at risk of fatal diseases such as leukemia, cancer.
Peter Susiu has said in his article that after China became the fifth nuclear power in the world, in June 1967, only 32 months after the first nuclear test, conducted the first thermonuclear test. This nuclear test produced 3.3 megatons of energy and this energy was 200 times more than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
Although official figures for nuclear testing are scant, these effects have not been studied extensively. Wherein Xinjiang region which is home to 20 million people, radiation has severely affected the population.
A Japanese researcher studying radiation levels says the amount of radiation in Xinjiang exceeds those measured on the roof of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor in 1986, The National Interest reported. Reports said that radioactive dust has spread across the region, causing thousands of deaths. It is known that China conducted its first nuclear test in 1964 in Lop Noor – Project 596, which is known by the US intelligence community as the code word Chick-1.
