Thanks for the information. I think we should pay more attention to the none
cancer effects of radiation. See my views thar I presented at the last IRPA
meeting in Madrid at http://www.irpa.net/irpa11/index.html in 2004.

Happy New Year

There is an article (pp. 48-57) reviewing health risks
associated with fallout from atmospheric nuclear weapons
testing.  The authors seem to be trying to put risks in
perspective in light of the potential fear associated with
the threat of terrorists using nuclear weapons or dirty bombs.

There was also brief mention of non-cancer, radiation
induced, health risks such as cardiovascular disease and
benign neoplasms.

An interesting read.
