According to scientific tests on behalf of Greenpeace, 30 years after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, people are still exposed to high levels radiation and are still eating contaminated food such grain, milk, mushrooms and fish.

High levels of radioactivity have also been measured in the woods of the forest, often used as a fuel in rural private households.

The Chernobyl plant exploded in April 1986, sending a plume of radioactive fallout across large swathes of Europe.
