We received a report from Dr Basant Pant about a seminar which he organized with the Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) to study the effects of radiation on human health. The seminar was held in commemoration of the 69th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on August 6th 1945.
Writing on his Facebook Page, Dr Pant explained,
Today at 8:15 am Aug 6th 1945, first atom bomb was dropped in Hiroshima leading to 80,000 deaths, thousands of injury, great destruction, and long term effect of radiation.
We all should learn a lesson from Hiroshima, risk of Nuclear war & accident incorporate all human beings, nobody is immune from it so, we should continue to show our concern against its development, proliferation and use.
Today NAST is organizing a special event in this regards and here are some of the slides from my presentation.
“War is Evil; not the countries who fight it”
We would like to extend our thanks to Dr Pant and NAST for organizing this event.
