Radioactive nuclear waste buried beside 21% of the world's fresh water supply defies common sense

Reasons To Be Concerned

4.  Buried Radioactive Waste Is Forever Toxic

Some intermediate level nuclear waste remains toxic for 100,000 years. OPG defines intermediate level nuclear waste to include resins, filters and irradiated components from within the nuclear reactors themselves.  Some of the intermediate level nuclear waste is almost as toxic and radioactive as the high level radioactive nuclear spent fuel from inside nuclear reactors.

"There is no limitation as to the toxicity, longevity or diversity of radioactive materials to be included in the ill-defined categories of low and intermediate level waste that will be buried."14
