CHAPTER I

INTRODUCTION:

The researcher finds the topic about nuclear interesting because it is one of the issues that our country is facing. She learned that a senator pursues the opening of the nuclear power plant. She wanted to prove that the nuclear has different effects to the people and environment. She wanted to know if the nuclear can really be harmful. The researcher will conduct different studies to come up to a definite conclusion. She is going to conduct researches in the internet. She will read books, magazines and newspapers and review previous articles. She will watch news for current issues about the topic and movies related to it. She is also going to conduct interviews and surveys about the opinions of different people. The topic is about the effects of nuclear to everyone. Nuclear is different forms. There are what we call nuclear weapons, nuclear power plants, nuclear fission and fusion. The nuclear fission is the process in which the nuclei of atoms split into two or more fragments under bombardment by neutrons. Nuclear fusion is also called thermonuclear fusion. Nuclear power plants are powered by nuclear radiation using nuclear fission as heat that produces electricity. Nuclear weapons are commonly bombs that cause large destruction.

THESIS STATEMENT:

“Nuclear results to destructive and serious problems.”

SPECIFIC QUESTIONS:

1.What are the effects of nuclear to humans?

2.What are the damages of nuclear to animals and surroundings? 3.Is nuclear really the best solution to energy shortage?

SIGNIFICANCE OF STUDY:

The researcher wants to give information to everyone especially now that the nuclear power plant is proposed to be open. She wanted to give a little help to persons near the power plants and let others know the bad effects of it. She wanted to prove that nuclear are very harmful to all of us.

CHAPTER II

THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK

1.Indian nuclear workers 'deliberately poisoned'

BANGALORE, India (AFP) – Workers at a nuclear power plant in southern India were treated for poisoning after drinking water was deliberately spiked with radiation, senior government officials said Sunday. Routine tests showed 55 employees from the plant in Kaiga in the state of Karnataka had increased levels of the radioactive element tritium, which is used in nuclear reactors. B. Bhattacharjee, a member of the National Disaster Management Authority, said someone had inserted contaminated water into a water cooler, according to the Press Trust of India. The employees had not suffered any ill effects and had returned to work, plant officials told AFP. Atomic Energy Commission chairman Anil Kakodkar, speaking on the Headlines Today television network, blamed the sabotage on "an insider who has played mischief". Kakodkar said security was "fool-proof" and there was no chance of an outsider gaining access to the station. The Nuclear Power Corporation of India, which operates the country's civil nuclear facilities, said in a statement that preliminary enquiries revealed no radioactive leak or security breach. "It is possibly an act of mischief," the statement said. State ministers assured local residents that their health was not at risk. The Kaiga plant was shut down in October for annual maintenance and is due to reopen shortly.

The news was included by the researcher because she believes that it is a proof that nuclear really dangers the health of the people that was affected by its radiation. It...
