|Radiation Information Network's||Plutonium|
In a recent TV movie, radioactive plutonium was used to build a bomb. It must be kept in mind that this is a fictional TV show - entertainment and is not based on science. The show contained many errors about plutonium and the effects of radiation. In reality, the plutonium that can be used to build bombs is very strictly controlled. Plutonium is also not as toxic as the show made out.
