Alan Waltar, Author of "radiation and Modern Life: Fulfilling Marie Curie's Dream" and James Katzaroff, CEO of Advanced Medical Isotopes Corp., World Council on Isotopes. By 2004, two-thirds of the elements in the Periodic Table had produced at least one commercially utilized radioisotope: 63 for medicine, 27 for industry, 31 for environmental protection. For nuclear medicine, 10% of the radioisotopes were used in therapy and 90% in diagnostics. This report examines the progress in the last ten years.

Book Brief: Alan Waltar, "AMERICA THE POWERLESS." This is an excellent book that is still in print. We encourage people everywhere to read it. There are four cases for nuclear power today:
1) countries going ahead with plentiful new nuclear power plants
2) countries operating nuclear power plants but not adding many more
3) countries getting out of nuclear power
4) countries that don't have nuclear power yet
Reading this book is important to people everywhere.
Alan Waltar -¿Cómo sería nuestro mundo hoy si la radiación no hubiera sido empleada para servir nuestras necesidades humanas? Una manera de apreciar en algo a esta moderna servidora es pasar un día típico con nuestras antenas particularmente sensibilizadas a la conciencia del rol de la radiación.
