We have been living in the nuclear age now for over half a century. Since the first atomic bombs were developed, nuclear technology has provided governments with the ability to totally destroy the planet. Yet the technology has been put to positive use as an energy source and in certain areas of medicine. To what extent is nuclear technology a danger to life on Earth? What are the benefits and risks associated with its use?
This resource hasn't been reviewed. Therefore, it might
need lots of improvements. The reason this happened is we are implementing more
features for this website. Therefore, you need to use it with caution.
Technology is always playing a prime role for every countries development, in recent past all countries were concentrating on nuclear technology because of its various advantages. Everything had two sides, nuclear energy is not an exception though.
When nuclear bomb was deployed first time during world war, it destroyed the whole landscape of that state. Even now, people are suffering with radiation which was created fifty years ago. The human power hunger to be the leader of world created many problems.
However, we being a intelligent creature in the world, always learn and adopt from mistakes. The same happened in the nuclear technology enhancement. Seeking to put past acrimony behind, now we have molded a world most dangerous technology to most useful technology.
Since last few decades, the development in making use of nuclear technology has widen its wings. For example, in developed countries fifty percentage of electricity is generated by nuclear power. In medical technology it is useful for killing cancer cells with radiation which are emitted by nuclear reaction.
Although, there are many advantages, the recent studies have identified few disadvantages of nuclear technology. The people who are staying near nuclear power plant are affected by nuclear radiations which in turn affecting human reproductive system. Sorroundings of nuclear power plant are getting polluted by radiation.
To sum up, I agree that nuclear power has many benifits, at the same time it has drawbacks too. So , we should concentrate on how to mitigate side affects of nuclear technology and make use of its power more effectively.
