Asked in Marie Curie
Did Marie and Pierre Curie go blind?
Marie Curie was "almost blind" when she died in 1934. Her death was from Leukemia brought on by her lifetime of exposure to radioactive elements. Pierre Curie was not blind, as far as I know, and was killed in 1906 when he was run over whilst crossing a road and suffered a fractured skull. His body was so weak, again as a result of exposure to radiation, that it could fight to stay alive.
