Although radioactive materials and radiation are dangerous, the fear of them is magnified and distorted by a lack of understanding, on behalf of the public, of the risks and issues. There is justifiable fear of radiation and accidents such as Fukushima, Three Mile Island, and Chernobyl. The fear of radiation can be exploited by terrorists and adversely impacts policy possibilities. This fear, however, can be mitigated by a program informing the public, which will allow for more informed decisions by policymakers. Furthermore, this program will ensure that the public understands the risks and issues and is less susceptible to hysteria.
