According to CNN, new research on the effects of radiation on the island indicates that the level of radioactivity in many islands in the Marshall Islands is 10-1,000 times higher than in areas that have suffered nuclear disasters like Chernobyl (Ukraine) and Fukushima (Japan). Over the past 60 years, the Pacific Ocean archipelago has regained its inherent beauty, but the consequences of the nuclear test leave many scars that are hard to heal.

Beautiful Bikini Island is home to the highest levels of radiation in the studied areas. Bikini island residents have been forced to relocate in 1946. Researchers say some people have returned to Bikini Island in the late 60s of the last century, after the United States declared the island safe for resettlement. However, people returned soon to leave because of high levels of radiation exposure.

After the nuclear bomb test ended, the US built a bury of radioactive waste, filled it with a concrete dome. However, these wastes are leaking, affecting water and living land. Researchers have suggested that Marshall people should not be living on this toxic island.
