These could be fatal to the body of the employees working under the Department of Energy. Most employees working under the Department of Energy during the cold war on the 300+ sites across the nation would have succumbed to the illnesses and diseases caused by exposure to harmful chemicals and radioactive substances.
However, the federal government has started several programs whereby the employees of the Department of Energy would be compensated adequately for the illnesses and medical conditions suffered by them while working on the 300+ sites across the nation. Such people would have been diagnosed with harmful illnesses and dangerous diseases that could be fatal as well. However, the compensation would be adequate to help them take care of their health both medically and non-medically.
