We hear about nuclear attacks almost everyday. To protect ourselves from catastrophe, we must understand what a nuclear attack is, and how to stay safe. There is a multitude of ways nuclear attacks can happen, but each one can potentially disburse a profuse amount of radiation. Decrease time spend in radiation areas, stay as far away as possible and create a barrier between yourself and the source.
