PRA Archive #: 
IZ1072
Description: 

The program features the story of Karen Silkwood, a labor union activist. Silkwood was a worker at Kerr-McGee Plant in Crescent, Oklahoma that made fuel rods for plutonium, which is the most fatal of radioactive substances. After compiling a stack of documentation explaining the dangers of the radioactive substances, she was killed in a car accident and the documents which she was going to present to the New York Times, were removed. The host interviews a Shemis Johannes (sp?), an herbologist who gives information on herbal remedies and preventive measures you can take about radiation. The audio has poor quality.
