    Good morning dear,

    This is one of the most biggest tragedy took place in this city.

    My believe :- even the radiation substances are reduce in the air but never take chance because it is always precaution better than suffering.

    Example:- country with high air Pollution , people are suffering from respiratory tract problem , breathing problem many are suffering from asthma and other lungs problem.

    Radiation :- Can have such a compounds which touch your body enter into one individual blood steams can cause various diseases.

    Human body is made different body composition such as:-

    O,C, H,N,Ca, P,K,S,Na, CI, Mg and others.

    When radiation in air touch our skin, there is always a high possibility to enter into our blood and reach to various part of organ, than can causes huge health damages.

    My view:- Wear back all which is necessary while working is best , i am aware it create uneasiness but avoid life time body damages is better and best as per me.

    Thank you so much for sharing news with us here.

    Best regards,
    SK HKG🇭🇰
