Radiation and human health by John W Gofman( Book )

18 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a very large fund of accumulated knowledge concerning the effects of low doses of radiation on human health. Yet, the information available is not very useful in its crude, unintegrated form. A major goal of this book is to present and analyze the evidence concerning effects of low doses of radiation upon humans, and to demonstrate that a systematic and consistent evaluations of the evidence is now possible, with very useful practical results
Poisoned power; the case against nuclear power plants by John W Gofman( Book )

18 editions published between 1971 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radiation-induced cancer from low-dose exposure : an independent analysis by John W Gofman( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

X-rays, health effects of common exams by John W Gofman( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One-of-a-kind handbook unequaled for practical use by professionals and concerned laypeople. Essentially a usable supplement to Gofman's Radiation and Human Health, it is designed to provide the data needed for evaluating health effects (specifically, risk of cancer) from diagnostic X-rays and to identify opportunities for dose reduction. Easily understood instructions for adjustments and conversions are given. An immense amount of information is organized according to type of X-ray, body part, sex, age, and risk of future disease

Advances in Biological and Medical Physics, Volume 14 focuses on the application of physics to biology and medicine. The topics covered in this book include mechanical, biochemical, and architectural features of surgical repair; structure of normal and pathologic erythrocytes; and cytology automation. The analysis of reported physiologic effects of microwave radiation; spectroscopic methods in biology, with application to neurophysiology; and transmission of pictorial information through the skin are also deliberated in this text. This compilation likewise discusses the apparatus for tactile

Advances in Biological and Medical Physics, Volume 12 covers the significant progress in various aspects of biology and medical physics. This volume is composed of 16 chapters. The opening chapters deal with the principles and application of freeze-etching technique and scanning electron microscopy. The succeeding chapters review the development rudimentary model of the chromosome, the mechanisms involving large number of steps to kinetic studies of multisubstrate enzyme systems, and some biophysical approaches to evaluate radiation effects and their repair. These topics are followed by discus

Advances in Biological and Medical Physics, Volume 15 covers papers on the productive applications of physical science in biology and medicine. The book presents articles dealing with the geometric influence of bone matrix on the differentiation of fibroblasts and information on human repetitious DNA; the complexity of the human genome; and possible directions for future research. The text then describes the problem of biological time. The microcirculatory basis of fluid exchange is also considered. The book concludes with articles dealing with the possibilities for electron microscopy and dif
