Radiation: Maclean’s 1956

I was looking through an old Maclean’s magazine from December 8, 1956.  This article seemed very apropos considering Japan’s situation right now, and the current discussion in Canada of building another nuclear power plant.

Turning the pages of a magazine 55 years old, I see so much of what has changed in our society: mostly the technology, clothing  and to some extent the gender roles in the media. Yet here we are still having the same questions that our parents and grandparent’s  had 5 decades ago-possibly with a greater understanding of the consequences.
