About the product

The wide readership of this book by individuals, government officials, scientists and medical specialists is due to concern about the possible hazards of natural and man-made sources of radiation. This publication presents the consequences of exposures to radiation by the use of radiobiological research and results of epidemiological studies; summarizes and evaluates sources of human radiation exposures; discusses principal features of radiation risk perception; and gives a brief summary and indication of perspectives.
