Energy conversion equation how electricity is generated from nuclear energy pros and cons of nuclear power why other countries think of it as the last option. It's no no news that radioactive radiation is very dangerous. It causes cancer and so many other deadly disease. Worst of all, it causes genetic mutation. You don't just get up and say you want to build a nuclear power plant, you have to consider one factor.
