Nuclear and Radiation Safety Issues


Responses of Professionals in the Industry

Many of us who work in the nuclear industry and the profession of radiation safety believe that the public is needlessly fearful of nuclear power and radioactive materials. One of the most outspoken critics of the use of radioactive materials is Dr. Helen Caldicott. This web page was begun as site to allow several experts to respond to Dr. Caldicott's recent remarks that were published in the Los Angeles Times. The first group of links below is related to Caldicott's LA Times article.
