over 2,000 nuclear explosions around the world since 1945.
2. Each nuclear explosion releases several hundred grams of the radioactive isotope Caesium-137. This has a half-life of about 30 years, so it is not normally found in nature.
3. Caesium-137 dust gets dispersed in the atmosphere and reacts with rainwater to form soluble salts. From there it is absorbed, in tiny quantities, by plants through their roots.
