A NEW STUDY REVEALS SHOCKING FIGURES ABOUT THE FATE OF THE CHILDREN OF BRITISH SERVICEMEN EXPOSED TO THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS TEST
Shocking research has exposed the devastating toll Britain’s nuclear tests have inflicted on unsuspecting servicemen in the danger zone. Children born to the 22,000 British troops sent to witness blasts in the South Pacific had 16 TIMES the normal rate of birth defects and the men’s partners suffered 50 PER CENT more ­miscarriages and stillbirths, a new study reveals.
The news comes five months after Prime Minister David Cameron promised to consider setting up a £25million fund for survivors and families.
…….Now a study for the British Nuclear Test Veterans’ Association has revealed the appalling toll on their health and the legacy of damage passed to future generations.
The research showed 36 per cent of veterans report birth defects in their ­children, against a national average of 2.2 per cent.
The figure is nearly 20 per cent for their grandchildren and 13 per cent for great-grandchildren.
MP John Baron, who met the PM for the association, said: “Given the veterans’ unique service, we owe them.”………http://ntvrecognition.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/nuclear-test-veterans-still-waiting-on.html
