Summary
In the 1950s, the conservative, patriotic Mormon community of St. George, Utah took the full impact of the downwind radioactive dust from atomic tests. Government scientists deliberately lied to the local population. Radiation figures were falsified and children were allowed to drink radioactive milk and eat contaminated food to avoid causing panic. Now the survivors are telling their stories. Months after the most life-threatening tests, Hollywood came to St. George to film The Conqueror. In the ensuing years, around half the cast of 220, including John Wayne, were dead from cancer. To this day, oest-related cancers remain in the community. The bitter irony is that most of the post-war victims of atomic weapons testing are American
