Effects and Threats of Radiation, 27/10/2015, 11AM

Dr Helen Caldicott, The Helen Coldicott Foundation

Nuclear fuel cycle activities can result in the release of radiation or radioactive material. This session will examine the risks and possible effects posed by such radiation releases on (i) human health and (ii) the environment (water, air, soil, flora and fauna).

During the public session, the Commission agreed that Dr Caldicott would supplement her evidence by providing references to the materials on which certain propositions are based.

The subsequent letter from the Commission to Dr Caldicott and the references to the relevant materials can respectively be found here and here.
