April 26, 1986, was a day that would live in infamy: the day of the Chernobyl accident. Several explosions at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant caused a fire which subsequently released radioactive material into the atmosphere. Unfortunately, a good bit of misinformation was then shared, which did little to help the citizens in the Ukraine. People kept their windows closed against the nuclear fallout. There was also a report of iodine helping with radiation, so supplies of iodine were quickly depleted (Jacobsen et al., 2014).
