Legacy of nuclear testing in Kazakhstan and Algeria

As cool as the civilian/peaceful use of nuclear explosions sounds, it has grave effects on people. As our Kazakh reader Sanchez points out, it has seriously harmed the people of his country, who had to endure hundreds of tests during the Soviet period. In fact, the first time I heard of "Kazakhstan" was freshman year in college (1992). My roommate's father, a South Korean oncologist, was opening a clinic in Kazakhstan to help cancer victims.
