Can we live here?

by Sylvaine Dampierre


Terebejov, a small village 200 km from Chernobyl. Despite the irradiations, the level of radioactivity in the region was too low to justify evacuating the local families. 
Living there means constant measuring for radioactivity… from the bilberries and mushroom that thrive in the forest, to the milk for the children. A team of scientists have chosen this village to try and improve living conditions there. 
How can one live with such an allpervading threat?
