After 1962, all nuclear tests in the US were conducted underground.‘The largest health effects appear in areas far beyond the scope of previous scientific and medical studies.‘The scientific and medical literature has studied the effects of atmospheric testing on populations residing in Downwind counties in Arizona, Nevada, and Utah.‘Counter-intuitively, the areas where fallout had the largest impact on the crude death rate was not in the region surrounding the test site, but rather in areas with moderate levels of radioactive fallout deposition in the interior of the country.’ Prior to 1963, many above-ground tests were conducted on US soil, at the Nevada Test Site.
