Three Mile Island ‘survivors’ group links ailments to partial meltdown in 1979. They’re battling health issues and grieving lost loved ones — and they are confident that there’s an explanation for their suffering. Nearly 3,000 people now call themselves “Three Mile Island Survivors” in a private Facebook group. The group, started in November 2016, believes that the partial meltdown of a Three Mile Island nuclear reactor on March 28, 1979, was far more dangerous than has been publicly acknowledged. They link the incident to myriad health issues they or loved ones have experienced. They say most people disagree with their belief. “Most of (the group members) just want the truth,” group administrator Christine Layman said.
