With nuclear power being increasingly appreciated and accepted across the world, United Nations health agency fears the health crisis may rise out of nuclear disaster. It said Tuesday that nuclear radiation may lead to cancer death of about 9,300 people, mainly the radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
