Chernobyl vodka made in exclusion zone may help the region economically

British scientists say the alcohol produced from grain grown in the exclusion zone around Chernobyl is free of dangerous radioactivity. It can be mass produced to help economic recovery in the blighted region around Chernobyl. Prof Jim Smith from the University of Portsmouth hopes it can be sold through a social enterprise with 75% of profits going back to the local community.

The boar on the label is supposed to have 2 heads, no? But jokes aside, they say the drink itself is not radioactive.

I'm sure you can find it in a dimly lit room, just look for the bottle that's glowing

The people who make it say it's safe. Um... Sorry but no. We have independent testing for a reason. And saying "we're scienticians, we know" is the height of arrogance. I'm a scientist. I wouldn't know the first thing about food safety testing. Just because you know nuclear physics doesn't mean you know everything.
