    The Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation on Oceanography and Fisheries held two meetings prior to the publication of its "Summary Report": the first Presenting a monumental achievement: 50 years of data cataloging the immediate, long-term, and hereditary effects of atomic radiation on the survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs. Authored by one of the key members of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission founded in , this unique work documents the critical findings and conclusions of

    2 days ago  The primary goal of this CRP is to investigate radiation effects on polymer materials commonly used in medical devices by comparing gamma, e-beam, and X-ray irradiation. Specific research objectives This CRP will focus on polymers commonly used in the medical industry, such as low-density polyethylene, polypropylene, poly (ether-block-amide Late-onset effects of exposure to ionising radiation on the human body have been identified by long-term, large-scale epidemiological studies. The cohort study of Japanese survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (the Life Span Study) is thought to be the most reliable source of information about these health effects because of the size of the cohort, the exposure of a (15)/fulltext.

    [en] Over the past few years the United Nations Scientific Committee on the effects of Atomic Radiation has undertaken a broad review of the sources and effects of ionizing radiation. In the present report, the Committee, drawing on the main conclusions of its scientific assessment summarizes the developments in radiation science in the years leading up to the next ://?orig_q=RN Fifty years ago, when the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission came into being, the health consequences of exposure to ionizing radiation were poorly understood. It was known that, under appropriate circumstances in experimental systems, ionizing radiation could be carcinogenic, mutagenic, and teratogenic. However, the applicability of this information to the human species was uncertain, and
