Radiation and Birds

The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is a wide area around the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster. Because of radiation, it is very highly restricted and controlled by the State Emergency Service of Ukraine. Scientists are granted limited access to perform studies.

One of the areas of research involves DNA damage in birds. Some of them are actually resistant to radiation! This indicates more of the biological intricacies that the Creator designed in his creation, and does not support evolutionary ideas.
It has been 28 years since Chernobyl's nuclear power plant suffered a catastrophic meltdown in Ukraine. People are still not permitted to live near it because radiation levels remain dangerous, but plants and animals long ago pioneered the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. A new study revealed surprising hints that certain birds' internal biological tactics cope well with the harmful radiation.

Publishing in the journal Functional Ecology, European scientists described results from analyses they began in the 1990s.1 For starters, they measured amounts of the two main feather pigments from 152 birds of 16 different species: phaeomelanin and eumelanin.
