       Between 1951 and 1992 the U.S. exploded over 1,000 nuclear
weapons, both above-ground and underground at the
Nevada Test Site,
            with the radioactive fallout reaching scores of states
                             as seen in red on the map. 

"A-bomb damage, then, is so complex and extensive that it cannot be reduced to        any single characteristic or problem.  It must be seen overall, as an inter-related          array – massive physical and human loss, social disintegration, and psychological     and spiritual shock – that affects all life and society.  Only then can one grasp the       seriousness of its total impact on the biological systems that sustain life and health,  on the social systems that enable people to live and work together, and on the             mental functions that hold these two dimensions in integrated unity.  The essence of  atomic destruction lies in the totality of its impact on man and society and on all the   systems that affect their mutual continuation."
