Why fear of radiation is wrong: personally, scientifically, environmentally (Wade Allison) UK (1 News)13.Mar.2015
Wade Allison, Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of Oxford, United Kingdom explains the science of low dose radiation and the disastrous consequences of existing radiation regulations.
Kiyohiko Sakamoto, Chairman, Board of Directors Tohoku Radiological Science Center, Professor Emeritus, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan explains the low level of radiation in Japan from the Fukushima accident and the implications for recovery.
SARI - The nuclear reactor accident at Fukushima Daiichi that followed the earthquake and tsunami in 2011 prompted well-intended measures that have had disastrous consequences. These were not caused by the radiation itself but by the social stress, the forced evacuation, and the ongoing displacement of tens of thousands of people.
A revolution in radiation protection that would lead to safer, cheaper nuclear power (Wade Allison) UK09.Mar.2015
Wade Allison - Much is known of the biological impact of radiation on life. Like sunshine, low levels of radiation can be beneficial and only very high levels in acute exposures can cause death or cancer. Only the extremely conservative advice from ICRP continues to support ALARA as a basis for nuclear safety. This influence, however discredited, still entrenches the bureaucratic structure of radiation protection today. Current “safety” standards are unfounded in science.
