Global Solutions: Increasing Resources
Children of the Cold War Atomic Era and beyond were conceived during the birth of the modern Atomic Age. Some arrived as “at risk” births with presumptive genetic damage, others were suspected due to exposure but either were not documented properly due to faulty dosimeters or simply the lack of governmental tracking mechanisms.
Most unknowingly passed the damage on to their children unaware, only to learn later when they or their parent were declassified, or maybe it was a grandparent. Human Radiologic Experiments, (HRE’s) were conducted by most governments involved in the arms race. Most governments and institutions didn’t have tracking mechanisms in place.
We are left to support one another on a quest to improve our situation. So as not to duplicate efforts, we understand the need for centralized resources.
The need to stay informed is critical for ourselves and generations to come. As an identifiable group and we should harness this to help researchers study and inform us. This is a great place to start…

The Atomic family, includes Veterans, descendants, indigenous people and organizations that represent all aspects of the Atomic tests. Thousands of people have been affected by the tests, and there are many organizations across the world representing these people. LABRATS brings all of these organizations together in one place. We want your stories and your input for our site. Be sure to subscribe to their recently launched online and print magazine ATOM.
StillGlowing.org has chosen the narrower lane of genetic research to focus on and how the global opportunities modern science brings can improve the outcomes for many generations of atomic veterans and civilian casualty decedents.
For broader scope of subjects and resources, please let LABRATS help guide you through the entanglement ionizing radiation has brought to humanity.
