Radiation safety and risk management, a critical issue in the nuclear age, is an ongoing concern in the field of radiation health risk sciences. It is the particular mission and task of the Nagasaki University Global COE program to explore human health risks from radiation on a global scale and to come up with measures for overcoming its negative legacies. Ionizing radiation is a well-documented human cancer risk factor, and long-term health consequences in individuals exposed at a young age to such events as the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombing are now being followed up. Unique and comprehensive, this book introduces updated radiation health-related issues, including the proper collection and analysis of biological samples, cancer research, psychological effects, fair disclosure, and the effects of low-dose exposure as they apply to future public health policy. Also addressed is the need for emergency radiation medicine in case of accidents.
Críticas: From the reviews: ?This book, the proceedings from a 2008 international symposium hosted by the center, outlines proper collection and analysis of biological samples, the role and significance of radiation-pertinent cancer research, the significance of psychological effects, and a host of other topics including the need for emergency radiation medicine given the occurrence of an accident. ? The book has an obvious audience among protective specialists. ? the audience is considerably broader and likely encompasses clinicians, researchers, and practitioners.? (J. Thomas Pierce, Doody?s Review Service, December, 2009)
