Re: More info on Radiation and People - Southern Urals

...it is indeed a very interesting read, as you say, but some of the conclusions simply say that the Techra results may need to be re-evaluated to account for early g-ray exposures that may not have been correctly accounted for. At time I wonder if this is a "stock" response by researchers, in orde...
