Summary San Francisco Bay Guardian reports on health hazards posed to prospective residents of a new housing and commercial development planned on the site of a former U.S. Navy base near the city of Alameda. "There's just one problem: it's a toxic disaster area," the story reveals. A major finding is that the Navy may have blasted dangerous levels of radiation into the atmosphere, dumped radium, and spilt uranium and mercury on the base. The article looks at a mysterious case of missing tons of toxins at the base.
