I am reading Apples Are From Kazakhstan. My plan was to post an entertaining Youtube video about golden eagles or the very artificial city of Astana. But I came across this documentary put out by Al Jazeera instead. It's about the 450 plus nuclear tests the Soviets performed in a small area in eastern Kazakhstan called the Polygon. Be advised that some of the birth defects shown are very disturbing. The bullshit comes from the Russians, who blame the cancer and disease on a lack of fruits and vegetables in the Kazakh diet.
