Re: WHO Fukushima Health Effects Report

I was trying to make a point as to possibly why a 70% increase (from 0.75% to 1.25% over lifetime) for thyroid cancer incidence was not deemed as importance because of the lower mortality rate from thyroid cancers, relative to other cancers.

Re: WHO Fukushima Health Effects Report

Howarde, I am not an MD, or an epidemiologist. Like everything else in life, we have to presume that the results have been reviewed and reviewed again, before being published.

Re: Russian Meteor fell near nuclear facilities

You'll find a way to work your anti-nuclear sentiments into any subject, won't you? Helen, Howard may have an "anti-nuclear" sentiment in his posts, but it's O.K. to question things and ask questions. Anyway, as far as I know, based on what I have read from Russian reports, there was no nuclear fac...

Re: Explaining the nuclear units ?

I read and hear all these units thrown around and though I've tried to read up on them, I still get confused. In particular I keep hearing about sieverts and beqerels, and once in a while I read about greys. (In my readings, I also saw that they used to use rems, but I don't care about those, since...

Re: Excel model for Radioactive decay ?

Well, not sure how many members it handles, etc. but the attached may give you a staring point. (I didn't create it, so don't ask me any questions specific to this model).
