I met Dr. Cohen at one of the Annual Waste Management meetings in Tucson
long ago, and had the great pleasure to sit next to him during dinner and
discuss issues related to radiation exposure from nuclear facilities, and
Radon exposure pathways. He was an individual of incredible insights and
energy who published so many seminal scientific papers, and various vital
and detailed review papers on the shortcomings of the LNTH, and valuable
perspectives regarding low-level radiation exposure vs. other societal
He was truly a unique individual who persevered in stimulating a reasoned
discussion of radiation risk despite the dogmatic opposition by many vested
interests against his views on there being no evidence for the LNTH.

Thank you for letting us know. I am very sad to read the news. Bernie Cohen
was a great man with a lasting impact, a critical mind and kind and open.
We have lost a dear friend.
Sincerely, Ludwig Feinendegen.
