Fish radiation testIng. Gloved hands of a researcher holds fish which has been dried for radioactivity level testing. Before testing, the dried fish will be powdered. Radioactive contamination may arise from nearby nuclear power stations or natural sources. Regardless of their source, radioactive materials can cause severe health problems during prolonged exposure, the most obvious being the dramatically increased risk of cancer. Photographed at the l'Institut de Protection et de Secrete Nucleaire (IPSN), Saclay, France.
