If the nuclear plant has an accident that allows radiation to leak, the radiation can make nearby receptors quite ill. Edit: This is a bit of an understatement tbh. If the radiation "leaks" and people nearby are exposed to said radiation, statistically, their chances of all manner of diseases is increased. Mainly cancer.
