Nuclear power plants in Switzerland

Second field study in the environs of the Swiss nuclear power plants Gösgen and Leibstadt
In my publication I stated my suspicion that the radioactivity from Chernobyl fallout as well as these normal, well-functioning Swiss nuclear power plants were responsible for the deformities I had found, and that these disturbances in insects should be studied by local scientists. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] The Swiss Government took up this suggestion; the ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in Zurich gave the assignment to study the health of true bugs in Switzerland to J. Jenny, to be presented as a dissertation. I was happy to contribute to Dr. Jennys study by painting deformed true bugs he gave me. As his publications began appearing before his research had been completed — I realized that his research was, incomplete and lacking.
