Have the after affects of the atom bombs in Japan ended?

    Nope. There is still residual radiation around Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This radiation will continue to cause chronic radiation poisoning in people who live in or near those cities for a long time. Since many of the radioactive elements released in the explosion have long half-lives, it will be a very long time before the extra radiation there goes away completely. Humans can tolerate a little radiation, but if they are exposed to it constantly, it will cause tissue damage and cancer. Unfortunately, the Japanese government has sugar-coated the effects of exposure to residual radiation, and many people have suffered the consequences.
