This text is about radiation. Radiation can be very dangerous to people. If there is a nuclear war and you experience a lot of radiation, you can die after only a few days. That’s the reason why scientists in the US are looking for a treatment for radiation. It is very important for them.

They found something new. They found a special drug which you can take one day after radiation. It’s a good thing because in the past you had to take a drug very fast after radiation. With this new drug, the chance that you will survive is 80% higher.

This drug doesn’t only help soldiers in a war. It can also help people in hospitals.
