Nuclear Technology has brought many great benefit to our society. The use of Nuclear power plants, safe and clean power supply. Nuclear in medication field.

In this debate, Pro will argue the evidence that the earth is younger than 10,000 years, and Con will argue the evidence that the earth is older than 10,000 years.

They are safer for one and also thorium is much more abundant than uranium. If the next piece of your argument is that thorium still has to be converted into uranium-233[fissile] to actually be...

Food Irradiation is vital in the twentieth century's produce distribution, growth, and purification. Irradiating food enhances the safety and can prevent illness/epidemics from occurring.
