death by dust
Any one breathing near a leafblower after Chernobly is in TROUBLE.

Your life expectancy is reduced.

Any one drinking MILK after Chernobyl ingested radioactive isotopes that landed on the grass cows ate.

Leaf blowers also stir up lawn chemicals, which are endocrine disruptors/
estrogen mimickers.

Do not breathe dust if you do not know what is in it.

98% of the Radio Active isotopes in the dust in Nevada deserts are from Chernobyl.
(Taken from samples at surface and 2 inches deep. 6 inch deep samples are negative.)

The fallout from China testing and from US testing in 50s / 60s is not more than 2%.

yes - most of this is uncontroversial, yet not very well known.
I heard that polycarbonate (very hard clear plastic used in Nalgene bottles, and blue truck delivered water jugs) is what is believed to leach endocrine disruptors in substantial levels. Opaque plastics except polyvinyl chloride tend to be better.
