Fascinating article on Chernobyl

This link takes you to a US newspaper's web site on which they have published an interesting article on how wildlife has reclaimed the Chernobyl site. It does beg the question as to what the impact of the radiation will be on the birds nesting on the site.
Great last line from the elderly lady interviewed in her home in the danger zone. "Does she fear the effects of her exposure to radiation? “Radiation? No!” she said. “What humans do? Yes.”
