Do We Know If Radiation Causes Cancer?

Public opinion about this issue shows increasing concerns, especially in the last 5 years.

Cancers have long and increasingly been associated with radiation, especially with Nuclear Power sources, not just Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima. Dr. Lewis E. Patrie, MD will relate his first experience with cancer due to radiation.

Cancers have long been associated with exposure to detonation and testing of Nuclear Weapons including the “BabyTooth Study”.

Regularly issued denials and criticisms of such reports abound.

Part of the limitations of studies have resulted from inadequate information due to missed opportunities.

What action would this situation justify?

Lewis Patrie M.D. is a member of Western North Carolina Chapter, Physicians for Social Responsibility
