    Ukrainian medical responder and radiation expert Alla Shapiro reviews the validity of the HBO series "Chernobyl." Alla shares some real-life on-site experiences to explain whether clips from the series are true to what actually happened on April 26th, 1986 and the days that followed.

    Dr. Shapiro received a Medical degree and a PhD degree in Kiev, Ukraine where she was trained in pediatric hematology. After Chernobyl she was one of the first medical responders sent to the most radiation contaminated areas, and headed the field team surveying the medical effects on children in the Chernobyl vicinity.

    In 1989, Dr. Shapiro and her family became stateless refugees, spending 6 months in refugee camps in Italy, before immigrating to the U.S. She completed a residency in pediatrics at Georgetown University Hospital and a fellowship in pediatric oncology at the National Institute of Health. Shortly after 9/11, she became a Medical Officer at the Counter-Terrorism and Emergency Coordination Staff at the US Food and Drug Administration and evaluated drugs that treat people who have been exposed to harmful levels of radiation.

    Dr. Shapiro is currently completing a book manuscript entitled Extraordinary Journey of the Stateless: From the Shadows of Chernobyl to the Lights of Washington.

They used to limit information so the public wouldnt know the truth. Nowadays, they put so much information out so the public would be confused, and in the end, the public wouldn't know the truth.

There is probably one thing she was not correct in 9:42 however she is right in a sense that these people won't survive until this state of being. Artists may had been inspired by consequences of Tokai-mura accident in 1999.

An add for Jack Daniels' "Tennessee Honey" Liqueur opens this video. (What, no "Blue Glow" Moonshine drink?) Sensational dramatics in TV productions is part of the Hollyweird tradition of "can you top this?" "Reality" is a TV show and "Hollyweird Science" is more like "SciFi/Horror" than "the boring stuff that is real life."

I find it interesting to hear a doctor speak on the show and of course much more educated than i will ever be but i would say if a fetus can't absorb radiation then why can't a pregnant women have an xray even in this day and day mris are offered if in dire need? Found that one intresting.

If the fire fighters where not radioactive after being washed then why did they have to bury their bodies in lead coffins surrounded by concrete?

She said that people wouldn't be contagious, not that dead bodies pose no risk. Also, she said it was a common myth that people were contagious, so people would act on that by doing stuff like burying bodies in lead even if it wasn't strictly necessary. I don't know if it was necessary in the case of the firefighters, but a little googling says that dead bodies can pose risks that living bodies do not, depending on contamination levels. But, people with radiation sickness are not contagious.

At 10 minutes she is wrong about the appearance of damage caused by extreme radiation doses (and admits she had only seen a selection of photographs provided by colleagues .) See photographs of the Japanese nuclear technician _Hisashi Ouchi_ who was exposed to an accidental criticality event at Tokaimura nuclear plant, or search for him on YT. He looked even WORSE than the patient she is commenting on. That is probably what HBO modelled the injuries on. Be warned if you search for the photographs, they are some of the most gruesome on the Internet. The man was kept alive as long as possible (requests to be euthanized refused) as the flesh fell off his bones and finally died after 83 days of unimaginable pain. You have been warned.

Those photos aren't actually of Ouchi. It's most likely a movie prop that has been attached to his story. There are no photos of Ouchi, not to my knowledge. If there are, it's not as gruesome as that photo that is commonly thought to be him. So, I'd belive this woman over internet misinformation.

Mika I guess? I still feel confused. I did take a chance to read what the wife actually said. Apparently her baby’s liver had 28 roentgen. But maybe that’s just because of her general exposure while at Chernobyl? That said I’ve seen videos that show the firemen’s clothes in the basement are still radioactive. Why is that radioactive but not the firemen? Ugh I have so many questions!! 😅

Remember, there was almost no available information on radiation back then. It was probably a precautionary measure.
