A worrying health catastrophe may be in the making as it was widely reported this week Radioactive dust was sweeping the Algerian desert And the Sahara desert across the Mediterranean. Moreover, scientists say the ominous “radioactive desert dust” is causing a spike in pollution even in parts of southern Europe.
Radioactivity Control Association West (Acro) mentioned Scientists have noticed this phenomenon that occurs since February when Dust is found in parts of France. The samples confirmed what were found to be radioactive particles in the dust created by a large storm that recently swept Morocco, creating huge dust clouds that pick up the radioactive material left over. Previous nuclear tests conducted by France when it colonized Algeria in the early 1960s.
While some scientists claimed it was “not dangerous” – others warned that the remnants of cesium-137 – a radioactive isotope – might require warnings such as staying home.
Quoting from the French NGO that monitors Europe for signs of nuclear contamination, Euronews You reported this week that “Acrow said it had tested the last desert dust it collected in the Jura region, near the French border with Switzerland.”
“Given the homogeneous sediments over a wide area, based on this analytical result, Acro estimates that there are 80,000 Becquerels per square kilometer of cesium-137,” the organization said in a statement.
“This radioactive pollution, which comes from far away, 60 years after the nuclear explosions, reminds us of the permanent radioactive pollution in the Sahara, for which France bears responsibility,” he added.

While the health effects of exposure may be minimal in the short term, we suspect many Europeans are comfortable with such a dangerous cloud of particles hovering over the continent.
It appears that there will likely be more deposits in Radioactive dust is coming:
A fairly dense cloud crosses the Mediterranean Sea covering parts of Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, among othersWhere the phenomenon of “mud rains” is now expected.
And since the storm is affecting the Algerian interior once again, The particles would probably carry some cesium-137 From the site The French nuclear test was conducted on February 13, 1960.
This historic detonation was codenamed “blue jerboa” – and many now point to the deep mockery that the nuclear weapons test was carried out “carefully” and intentionally in a colony far from France, only because of its long-term radiological effects that would show return and haunt the French people.
There are also concerns that radioactive dust could explode as far east as Turkey, with Turkish health officials It is now said that he is preparing Parts of the population to stay home in the coming days.
