Betreff: [ RadSafe ] Dose-Response Journal Special Issue

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
orse-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,
