They sometimes try and do things they are not trained to do. My experience of
nuclear scientists is that they are trained to understand how to take things
apart i.e. they are reductionists. Where they tend to fall down is
understanding how complex things work i.e. emergent properties of chaotic,
non-linear systems.

The nuclear industry and the wider social systems it fits into is much more
complex than any of the physical systems nuclear scientists work on.

Unfortunately the people who hire nuclear scientists and the nuclear 
themselves are generally unaware of this.

Similarly, the subtle, emergent effects of electromagnetic radiation on
biological systems is beyond their experience horizon.
