SUMMARY

Reviewed in New England Journal of Medicine, February 14, 1991: "Strongly recommended ... excellent." This book provides proof that even at the lowest possible doses & dose-rates, exposure to ionizing radiation is carcinogenic, contrary to speculation that "repair" may provide a threshold. Additionally, in an open, checkable, step-by-step analysis from raw data to conclusion, Gofman shows that risk per dose-unit is much higher than the radiation community's 1990 estimates, & that ionizing radiation may be the most important single carcinogen to which vast numbers of humans are actually exposed -- medically, environmentally, occupationally. Gofman also includes chapters on Chernobyl-induced cancers, radio-iodine-induced thyroid cancer, latency & hormesis. Gofman is a Ph.D. nuclear chemist (1943), & a physician with an illustrious track-record of discovery, careful analysis, & correct forecasting in health research. His new findings in "Radiation-Induced Cancer" are essential input for policies toward cancer prevention, radioactive waste handling, nuclear power revival, "safe-dose" assumptions regarding radiation or other mutagens, conflict of interest in research, & the problem of retroactively altered databases. Reviewed in Choice, January 1991: "Thought-provoking...an important addition to the debate on the health effects of low-dose radiation."John W. Gofman is the author of 'Radiation-Induced Cancer from Low-Dose Exposure: An Independent Analysis' with ISBN 9780932682895 and ISBN 0932682898.
