Hi all,


A Special Issue of the Dose-Response Journal honoring Zbigniew Jaworowski will be published in December of this year.  Most of the papers to appear in the issue are now posted (prepress versions) on the journal website (www.dose-response.com <http://www.dose-response.com/> ) and can be freely downloaded. These papers are listed below in case they may be of interest. The papers by R. Wilson and by J. Cuttler relate to Fukushima and support the views of Lawrence Solomon (http://ep.probeinternational.org/2012/09/24/lawrence-solomon-evacuation-a-worse-killer-than-radiation/ ) and others (Civil Defense Perspectives, The Aftermath of Fukushima, September 2012, Vo. 28, #6) that more harm than benefit was done by the evacuations carried out.  The Special Issue Introduction paper (not yet posted) by B. Scott and L. Dobrzynski points out that as of March 31, 2012, more than 1600 disaster-associated premature deaths (mainly the elderly and within three months after the evacuations) that are not due to radiation-induced damage or to the earthquake or the tsunami have been identified. Such disaster-associated, radiation-phobia-promoting and stress-related premature deaths among fragile elderly evacuees may increase over time.


Best wishes,
