From unbelievable three-eyed fish to all the terrifying pictures of radiation effects on humans and animals, like mutation it's bizarre!

5. Three Eyed Fish
You have seen a three eyed fish on this simpsons before name blinky who lived by the nuclear power plant where Homer Simpson worked. But could one of these mutated creatures actually exist? In 2011, this three eyed fish was caught near a nuclear power plant in Argentina in a local reservoir. A Spanish speaking new website, called infobae.com, claims this resevoir where the hot water from the nuclear facility is pumped, thus leaving radioactive particles in this body of water. Despite the fish not looking exactly the same as blinky, it makes you wonder what other negative ways radiation will impact our ecosystem. Bizarre cases like this rightfully shock residents who live nearby the power plant.

4. Earless Bunny
If you came across a mutated bunny with no ears from radiation birth defects would you keep it as a pet? This little guy, nicknamed the nuclear rabbit, was born near the Fukushima facility and discovered without the trademark bunny ears, making some people wonder what exactly is it? If a bunny doesn’t have it’s ears, does that make it a guinea pig or something? After the blast, Japanese officials ordered that people stay in their homes, don’t turn on the air conditioning and don’t drink the tap water! Maybe this bunny didn’t listen. Experts have been carefully monitoring the area around the site of the meltdown but with this region ever be the same? Some people speculate that it’s possible the rabbit’s mother chewed off its offspring’s ears after birth when it was in distress. What do you believe?

3. Child Baldness
To this day we are still seeing the aftermath of nuclear meltdowns.While most people would expect children to have healthy flowing hair, the Chernobyl incident has created baldness like no one’s ever seen before. Some children in the Ukraine and places near the exclusion zone still suffer from mutations like baldness. Eyebrows and eyelashes completely missing, and small patches of hair grow from this kids head that you see in this photo. This child has her mother apply lotion to her head, hoping some day it’ll grow back. This baldness is unfortunately resistant to treatment and no cure has been found. The USSR wanted absolutely no media coverage of Chernobyl in order to keep the masses of panicking. Medical staffs are still reluctant to blame Chernobyl for the generations of defects in children.

2. Hyperdontia
Also known as Supernumerary Teeth,This rare condition called hyperdontia is an oral condition where people have extra teeth growing out of their mouth. Although scientists haven’t been able to pin down an exact reason for why this happens, many believe it is due to environmental reasons such as radioactivity, genetics and what elements exist in the environment. Having this bizarre condition can result in pain while eating. Also, they’ve been known to fuse with permanent teeth and cause tumors and cysts. Imagine the mutation similar to your wisdom teeth but in a much more extreme situation. The teeth begin to grow after other other permanent teeth have settled in and crowding of the mouth becomes an issue.

1.Cancerous Tumors
Nuclear power plant use energy from radioactive isotopes in order to produce electricity. Like we’ve seen from the 3 eyed fish, they have the capability of releasing radioactive materials into the environment. One of the isotopes released from these power plants is known as I-131 and it can find its way into our water supply, food, and even are milk from livestock that are affected. When the I-131 particles begin to affect the thyroid gland, located in your throat, cancer and horrific mutations become possible. The higher the dose, the more likely the risk of developing cancer. Fish have been found riddled with tumors, like we see in this photo.This wild caught Alaskan Salmon are caught horrifically diseased and internally bleeding. It’s almost like we’re eating Fukushima radiation. It can cause tumors on plants as well as we can seen this photo of a mutated tomato. After seeing all the destruction this power plant has brought, it really makes you consider just wanting to use candles instead of electricity
