There have unfortunately been many nuclear disasters in history, and that means there are some locations that suffer from nuclear contamination. Whether it’s because of the illegal dumping of nuclear waster of the Somali Coast, the Mayak Production Associaction in Russia – which has been the site of multiple nuclear accidents – or the Hanford Nuclear Reservation right in Washington, USA, these places are affected by nuclear decay. WatchMojo counts down ten places in the world plagued by radioactivity.

  1. Fun fact:
    All humans emit a small amount of radiation.
    Not enough to be dangerous though.

    Humans also glow slightly in the dark but too faint for us to see.
