Surviving a nuclear attack

Nuclear war – it's becoming a reality. So much so that one week from today The Center for Disease Control will hold a briefing on how you could survive a nuclear attack.

People in public health will attend to discuss important planning info and things we need to know. Like, if a nuke drops, did you know you have to shelter in place for at least 24 hours? It reduces exposure to radiation. Also, don't use hair conditioner. It binds with radioactive material.

The CDC says a detonation is unlikely, but it would be devastating, so they want to plan and prep just in case.

On the Factor to talk about the ‘what ifs’ of a nuclear attack is Dr. Eric Rohren, a professor of radiology at Baylor College of Medicine.
