Gofman used his low-level radiation health model to predict 333 excess cancer or leukemia deaths from the 1979 Three Mile Island accident. Studies of the health effects of the Three Mile Island accident have so far (by 2013) not observed any excess mortality. Gofman, December 20, 1994.

Gofman’s 1981 Radiation and Human Health (pp. 788-791) indicates that ionizing radiation causes 6 to 100 times more heart disease, cancer, diabetes, anemia, schizophrenia, ulcers and many other killers (referred to as Irregularly Inherited Diseases ) than assumed by the self-appointed. 788-791) indicates that ionizing radiation causes 6 to 100 times more heart disease, cancer, diabetes, anemia, schizophrenia, ulcers and many other killers (referred to as Irregularly Inherited Diseases ) than assumed by the self-appointed radiation committees. His 1993 paper, Asleep at the Wheel (ww. atical. html), explains how the Hiroshima and Nagasaki follow-up studies were not designed to find genetic health effects in future generations. Thus, claims of no genetic effects from radiation are not valid.

A striking feature of our culture includes the specific set of illusions presented by commercial print and broadcast media which promote a representation of reality through omission, distortion, lack of contextual analysis, and disinforming opinion stated as obvious, incontestable fact. It is always our choice what lens we adopt to view the world and our place in it.

John Gofman was one of the first scientists who offered a clear path to documenting the long-term . His 1981 book "Radiation and Human Health", described this and many other things that are still very relevant to our struggles for public health protection today.

John Gofman was one of the first scientists who offered a clear path to documenting the long-term harm done by radiation using cancer epidemiology. His approach to taking current real-world data on what was happening in communities of radiation-exposed people and projecting likely cancers in the future was a major leap forward.

John W. Gofman, a nuclear chemist and doctor who in the 1960s heightened public concerns about exposure to low-level radiation and became a leading voice against commercial nuclear power, died on Aug. 15 at his home in San Francisco. He was 88. The cause was heart failure, his family said.

Describes the effects of radiation on the human body, investigating the relationship between radiation and cancer, genetic damage, and other disseases, and evaluates specific radiation-exposure situations

Best source of info on the subject that I have found. Almost 20 years old, the "establishment" has had to, kicking and screaming, be dragged to Dr. Gofman's clear analysis. I'd rather have a more recent book of a similar calibre, but, alas... Get your own copy; it's encyclopedic and worth the effort of mastering it. Well-written and clear, the author does not "skip steps".

Nothing has changed. Very recent studies from Germany, for example, continue to show increased childhood leukemia and other cancers around nuclear reactors; unnecessary suffering (surplus pain and death) since this is already known. Bottom line; we must get rid of nukes. No compromise with this makes any sense!

This is for INTELLIGENT PEOPLE WHO MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BEEN SCREWED OUT OF A DECENT EDUCATION, BUT WANT A DECENT LIFE FOR THEMSELVES, THEIR KIDS AND PEOPLE IN GENERAL. If you have a 10th -12th grade education, start with a library book on radiation/nuclear issues from the juvenile section; no shame there.

This is work; working for a better world requires an informed, thoughtful and pro-active citizenry.

Also Highly recommended: "Lifes Delicate Balance: Causes and Prevention of Breast Cancer," by Dr. Janette Sherman; a sophisticated and wholistic analysis.

"The Code Killers" by Ace Hoffman, a lucid explanation of nuclear power based upon superb graphics. As a public service, Mr. Hoffman offers it free online, but the wonderfully produced hard copy will literally last you and your great-grandchildren 100 years.

This book contains infomation which will help you evaluate your chances of getting cancer later in life, from an X-Ray you got yesterday. Yes X-Rays do carry a certain amount of risk, and an intelligent person should weigh the harm X-Rays and other forms of radiation might do, against the benefit one will receive from the prescribed treatment. Your doctor probably will not tell you about this book, its contents, or the dangers of low level radiation.
The book is very well written and can be understood by someone with a good high school education. It was designed for the layman as well as individuals in the medical and legal professions. I recommended it to anyone who is concerned about their long term health and who wishes to understand the risk of getting cancer from any form of ionizing radiation.
Note that the reviewer is an Engineer.
