M. Alex Brown, Ph.D. radiochemistry: Medical isotopes are a class of radioactive isotopes used by hospitals to monitor the body’s functions and destroy cancerous tissues. They’re different from x-rays and CT scans that use accelerators to generate radiation. As of 2012 nearly 40 million people every year receive a diagnostic procedure with a medical isotope in what’s estimated to be a $5 billion/year industry, according to world-nuclear.org. Radiation therapy extends to the treatment of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, HIV, liver cancer, thyroid cancer, breast cancer, and more.
notrickszone.com, P. Gosselin: Germany’s once highly promoted “Energiewende” (transition to green energies) and the country’s feed-in act have been given a grade of “F” by one of the country’s top economists, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Hans-Werner Sinn. Top German economist Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Hans-Werner Sinn says supplying Germany’s energy needs with wind and sun is “disillusionment”.
Mohn Doss, Medical Physicist in Diagnostic Imaging. The ALARA concept, As Low As Reasonably Achievable is base on the linear no-threshold (LNT) model assumption and / or low--dose radiation cancer concerns. Do mutations increase linearly with radiation dose? When radiation dose increases, at low doses, mutations decrease. Cancers do not increase linearly with mutations. There are many more reasons to conclude: Mutation model of cancer is not valid. See for example slide 6 / 13.
David Kramer: The first US production in 30 years of molybdenum-99, the parent isotope of the most widely used medical radioisotope, is expected to begin within weeks after federal regulators approved a manufacturing process developed by Wisconsin-based NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes. NorthStar received $25 million in matching funds from DOE for development of the neutron capture process and $14.8 million of an expected $25 million total for its accelerator approach.
Das Kernkraftwerk Beznau 1 darf wieder in Betrieb genommen werden. Die Axpo hat nachgewiesen, dass die im Stahl des Reaktordruckbehälters gefundenen Einschlüsse keinen negativen Einfluss auf die Sicherheit haben. Das Eidgenössische Nuklearsicherheitsinspektorat ENSI hat den Nachweis geprüft und akzeptiert.
