Wade Allison - Radiation and Reason. Radiation is not a big threat to mankind, unlike socio-economic stability, population, water and food supplies. Everywhere, new fresh education is needed to explain radiation to more people in simple terms to remove the stigma.
The world is full of scientists, medical professionals and engineers who have made tremendous contributions to making the world a lot better AND explaining it to the public in an interesting way. Alan Waltar is one such person. Please take time to read each of the slides in this presentation. There is a lot we can learn.
As we reflect back over the day, we are no less than astounded by the degree to which radiation processes have already been harnessed to enrich our life. Recognizing this enormous progress, we can only dream in wonderment over what the future of radiation technology may hold for us and our children. See this article and more at: www.NuclearConnect.org
(COST) (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) Europe - Video about how radiopeptides destroy tumors04.Mar.2015
Award winner: This movie received the AIPES Press and Media Award 2013! The movie on the astonishing effects of radiopeptides in cancer is freely available for educational purposes to students and patients. It explains the application of radiolabeled peptides for cancer therapy in nuclear medicine. After injection into the body the molecules bind to somatostatin receptors over-expressed on tumor cells, whereas normal cells have a much lower density or no receptors at all. Excellent results are being obtained in patients as also shown on the sans in the video.
