The 10 most radiation-polluted places on the planet

Source: http://brainz.org/ten-most-radioactive-places-earth/

Hanford, CT, USA - former Uranium/Plutonium factory for atomic bomb production --- etc ... with Chernobyl and Fukushima topping out the list at #2 and #1 respectively.

The list of locations are on land and surrounding either the factories for producing atomic materials, the former nuclear bomb test sites, or sites of nuclear power plant accidents.

This source made a somewhat more alarmist view on the list from brainz.org.  However, this one includes a lot of useful links to resource sites.
