The effects of a nuclear meltdown depend on the safety features designed into a reactor. A modern reactor is designed both to make a meltdown unlikely, and to contain one should it occur.

In a modern reactor, a nuclear meltdown, whether partial or total, should be contained inside the reactor's containment structure. @article{osti_, title = {Monitoring krypton during Three Mile Island Unit 2 purging}, author = {Jester, W A and Baratta, A J}, abstractNote = {The Penn State noble gas monitor played an important role in measuring environmental levels of /sup 85/Kr during the purging of the Three Mile Island Unit 2 primary containment.

It filled a gap. Between March 28 and Ap the collective dose resulting from the radioactivity released to the population living within a mile radius of the Three Mile Island nuclear plant was about person-rems, less than 1% of the annual natural background level.

The release of radioactivity at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant resulted in an average radiation dose to the surrounding population of about 8 mrem over a radius of 10 miles and about 2 mrem over a radius of 50 miles from the reactor.

The most fundamental and critical issues surrounding the accident at Three Mile Island are the adverse health effects and the unresolved questions of dose.

The facts are that people have experienced radiation symptoms and have suffered adverse health effects. When Fukushima 1 Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) was torn apart by several explosions, whether due to technical failings in correspondence with the earthquakes, tsunami or a combination of both, it not only dispersed radioactive contaminant but also exposed the bonds connecting people’s lives with nuclear power.

Over the two and a half years since then, [ ]. 11 - Psychological and Endocrinological Correlates of Chronic Stress at Three Mile Island. not only through the time period of the krypton venting (summer ), but also 6 months after the completion of the venting procedure.

Health-related behavioral impact of the Three Mile Island nuclear by: Makhijani's analysis of the Sodium Reactor Experiment estimated the incident at the Sodium Reactor Experiment may have released up to times more radioactive iodine than the official estimates for the Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station release.
