Michel Gay: On 15 December 2016 in Marseille (FRANCE), Michel Gay was honored to receive the Yves Chelet Prize awarded by the French Nuclear Energy Society (SFEN). The Yves Chelet Prize rewards "the author of objective and educational media works for the dissemination and promotion of nuclear science and technology".
Mohan Doss, Medical Physicist, XLNT Foundation: Extreme irrational fear of things that are relatively harmless or even beneficial in small quantities is a serious problem, as it would make people flee the imaginary threat potentially making them run into real danger. Too many people have Radiophobia, fear of small doses of radiation. The Linear No Threshold (LNT) Hypothesis encourages this phobia in U.S. regulations. The XLNT Foundation is dedicated to getting rid of (Xing out) the LNT hypothesis in order to enhance public health. Eliminating the LNT hypothesis will help rejuvenate nuclear power industry (which has been throttled by radiophobia) thereby improving the quality of life globally. It will also have a tremendous positive impact on human health by enabling major progress in the war on cancer, as described in the Flyer below. Please share the Flyer with your friends and colleagues.
Radon, Lung Cancer and LNT Model (Thormod Henriksen, Biophysics and Medical Physics Group, University of Oslo)18.Nov.2016
Thormod Henriksen, Biophysics and Medical Physics Group, Dept. of Physics, University of Oslo: This is an update (2016) on radon and lung cancer. It is also a discussion on the rise and fall of the famous LNT (linear no threshold) theory. The theory has caused much anxiety and prevented a reasonable use of nuclear power, which is essential for long term prosperity of the human race, preservation of wildlife habitat, biodiversity and healthy environment. This outstanding research and teaching group at the University of Oslo presents this in a way that is interesting for the public worldwide.
Understanding Ionizing Radiation, A tribute to Zbigniew Jaworowski (Bobby Scott - Ludwik Dobrzynski)27.Aug.2016
Zbigniew Jaworowoski, Bobby Scott, Ludwik Dobrzynski: “Chernobyl was indeed an historic event; it is the only nuclear power station disaster that ever resulted in an occupational death toll, albeit a comparatively small one. A vast environmental dispersion of radioactivity occurred that did not cause any scientifically confirmed fatalities in the general population. The worst harm to the population was caused not by radiation, and not to flesh, but to minds. Dr. Jaworowski was the Founding President of Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy - Poland and took a firm position on "Climate Change."
