I am just a lowly engineer, but even I can see he is just making things
"What about people who inhaled radioactive material and ate contaminated
food ? Has this induced genomic instability? And the children that have
been born since, or who will be born to fathers or mothers who have been
irradiated. Have they inherited the fragile genomes of their parents?
Are they, perhaps, going to be even worse affected than their parents ?"
" In fact, researchers have been surprised to find that genetic damage,
and above all perigenetic damage, which is responsible for genomic
instability, to descendants is far worse than to parents; and this risk
increases from one generation to the next."
Apparently he made up "perigentic damage", because the first 10 results
for it on a Google search are his writings.
I wouldn't accept anything he says as valid.

Fernex is close associate of Busby. Together, they functioned as the
peer review for Rita Hindin's often cited by James Salsman article that
was heavily dependent on Traprock Peace Center. Does Fernex have any
credibility in the eyes of the members of this list?

Genetic damage from ionising radiation
by Christina MacPherson
Researchers have been surprised to find that genetic damage, and above
all perigenetic damage, which is responsible for genomic instability, to
descendants is far worse than to parents; and this risk increases from
one generation to the next.
In equal doses, external radiation is ten to a hundred times less
damaging than chronic internal radiation, which essentially results from
the oral absorption of radionuclides. These concentrate in organs like
the thymus, the endocrine glands, the spleen, the bone surfaces and the
Genetic mutations from radiation exposure are up to 100 times higher
than anything we have encountered in the animal kingdom -Dr. Fernex,

Organization "What should WHO have done after Chernobyl ?" asked Dr
Nabarro in 2002 when he was Acting Director-General of the World Health
I replied immediately, and then confirmed it in writing: "Convene a
Scientific Working Group on Ionising Radiation and Genetics" like the
one in 1956, and add the words "and Genomic Instability".....
Since 1959, an agreement signed between WHO and the International Atomic
Energy Agency, and then a number of additional legal texts, prohibit WHO
from intervening in nuclear accidents..... Read more of this post
