Fallout from Nuclear Weapons Tests and Cancer Risks


Comment

2 of these guys, Simon and Land have misled science and the public over the magnitude of the effects of fallout all their lives. This article is very strange, as if they are tiptoing away from their previous misinformation; as an example check out their work on the Marshall Islands where they apply the ICRP/BEIR risk models. In reality, check out the ECRR model at www.euradcom.org. Internal radionuclides that bind to DNA carry enormous excess ghazard coefficients. The cancer epidemic whicj began in the 1980s and therefore about a global 30% increase in age standardised cancer is the result of the weapons fallout
