Dear Ministry of Defence,

I would like to know, were, dangerous and harmful levels of nuclear
radiation,
emitted by the detonation, of the various nuclear devices
detonated during the course of the tests, and what were the levels
recorded.

By "dangerous" likely to injure or harm somebody, or to damage or
destroy something.

By "harmful" causing damage or injury to somebody/something,
especially to a person's health or to the environment.

I would also like to know , were, dangerous and harmful, by-
products, produced by the detonation of the various nuclear
devices, detonated during the course of these tests and what kind
of effects, on cellular systems, animal,and enviromental, did the
detonations have,over the short and long term time period.

By "by-product" a thing that happens, often unexpectedly, as the
result of something else.

Yours faithfully,

steve clifford
