Radiation Exposures by Nuclear Facilities

Evidence of the Impact on Health



Proceedings of the International Workshop on the German Society for Radiation Protection (GSS; Gesellschaft für Strahlenschutz e.V.) on the University of Portsmouth, 9 - 12. July 1996, Portsmouth, England, supported by Deutsche Umweltstiftung, Germersheim, and the Royal Society.

48 articles, 400 pages, many figures and tables, ISBN 3-9805260-1-1. EURO 49,oo.

A change of paradigm has occured in the science of radiation biology in the last few years. This has been caused by two extensive studies on occupationally exposed persons which confirmed that no threshold exists for effects, not only at the cellular level, but also in complete organisms, and that the low dose induction of cancer by low LET radiation is real.

The results of the 1996 international Workshop of the German Society for Radiation Protection at the University of Portsmouth, England, are gathered in the present volume. For the table of contents please turn over.
