Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseCars: Or, more specifically, school buses. The school bus of terrified kids picked up by Glenn in the sequel has an extremely low ceiling so none of the kids can possibly stand up. There's no way a real school bus would have an interior like that.

Sure enough, his burns are miraculously healed the next day; and soon after that Glenn's fiancee learns he's been spirited away from his original hospital to an abandoned medical facility in the desert. Traveling there, she does eventually learn that, [[ILoveNuclearPower exposure to the bomb]] has caused Glenn's body to grow out of control and he's become a giant. And, he's continuing to grow at an alarming rate. Even worse, [[YouFailBiologyForever since his heart's a single cell]], it's not keeping up with the rest of him, causing fainting spells, chest pain, the risk of eventual death... oh, and mental trauma on top of the obvious problems of being fifty feet tall.

** In addition, when Carol is asked about Glenn's family in the first film, she states that she herself is all he has. Likely in the days before home video, they were hoping no one caught this.

* ArtisticLicenseNuclearPhysics: The soldier in charge of the team waiting to be exposed to the fallout of the bomb (don't you just love the fifties' callous disregard for safety?) explains that they can't tell when the bomb will explode because they have to "wait for the nuclear reaction to cool off." Clearly the writers had no concept of critical mass.

** However, another glaring example is the official explanation for his growth; apparently instead of cellular division, "old cells" are replaced by "new cells" and in Glenn's case the "old cells" are "refusing to die".
