What are the effects of radioactive pollution on the environment?

Asked by Topperlearning User 6th January 2015, 4:22 PM

Answer:

Radioactive pollution affects our environment. Radioactive wastes can not be destroyed and hence they remain in our environment for a longer period of time. They can lead to the discolouring of trees in the forests. After the Chernobyl nuclear accident, a pine forest cover near the power plant turned reddish brown in colour.

Underground disposal of radioactive wastes may contaminate drinking water which may be harmful for plants, animals and humans.
