Radiation and Human Health: Three Years After the Japan Disaster

January 16, 2014

Radiation has long been identified as a serious risk factor in various human diseases. The earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and the resultant ongoing struggles to contain radiation released from reactors there, has brought radiation to the forefront again. This call on Thursday January 16, 2014 at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern will explore the many controversies which persist since the initial disaster: What are the primary risks to human health, of both acute high-level and lower-level exposures? Are there scientifically valid strategies for minimizing harm in those exposed? And how might such disasters best be avoided in the future?

Featuring speaker PSR Board Member Dr. Bob Gould.
