         Bob Arnot's biography on Wikipedia:  (Bio says little about 
him and does not specify his area of practice or reveal his education.)


         He appears to be a diet and nutrition doctor.  I am TV-free 
and hence did not see the FOX broadcast cited below, and am assuming 
Arnot was asked about the Japanese reactor(s).  I can't imagine why 
anyone would query a food Dr. about health physics.

         Arnot wrote a book about diet and breast cancer that caught 
a lot of flak.  See this evaluation from the American Council on Diet 
and Health:
