You can live after radiation - level 3, A12

This article is about radiation. Radiation can be very dangerous to people. If there is a nuclear war and you experience a large level of radiation, you can die within only a few days. That’s the reason why scientists in the US have been looking for a good treatment of radiation exposure. It is a high priority for them.

They have found something new. They found a special drug that you can take one day after being infected with radiation. It’s a great discovery because up until now the treatment had to start immediately after being exposed to radiation. With this new drug, the chance of surviving is 80% higher.

This discovery doesn’t only help soldiers in war. It can also help people suffering from cancer that are getting radiation treatment.
