Strictly observed realistic safety standards are more helpful for the public health than excessive restrictions that would be disregarded. Today’s radiation safety standards are based on the linearExpand
Asbestos, Mesothelioma and lung Cancer: An update
TLDR
The asbestos-related policies should be revaluated on the basis of independent research, and carcinogenicity of chrysotile vs. amphibole asbestos is discussed. Expand

TLDR
Current radiation safety norms are exceedingly restrictive and should be revised on the basis of scientific evidence, and Elevation of the limits must be accompanied by measures guaranteeing their observance. Expand

The global peace is as old as the nuclear weapons (NW)-71 years. It would be an overstatement to describe the Cold War as a long peace since a number of local wars were fought but not betweenExpand
The 30‐year mental health legacy of the Chernobyl disaster
TLDR
The 25‐year review of the impact of Chernobyl on mental health concluded that the psychological consequences, especially for mothers and liquidators, continued to be a concern, and that mental health care in affected regions was not adequate to meet their needs. Expand

Thyroid Growth and Cancer
TLDR
Most papillary thyroid cancers will not have achieved full immortality by adulthood, and remain as so-called micro-carcinomas with a very low growth rate, so the treatment protocols and nomenclature for small papillary carcinomas need to be reconsidered. Expand

TLDR
Volume 1181 of the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences contains unique, valuable data from the 3 most affected counties, and it suggests that consequences of the Chernobyl accident are far more serious than has been acknowledged. Expand

TLDR
The screening-effect, false-positivity and registration of non-exposed patients as Chernobyl victims has obviously contributed to the registered incidence increase of malignancy. Expand
Letter to the Editor: On the Radiation-Leukemia Dose-Response Relationship among Recovery Workers after the Chernobyl Accident

TLDR
One of the reasons why no statistically significant radiation risks were observed for chronic lymphatic leukemia (CLL) by Ivanov et al. (2012) seems to be clear: this leukemia type is often accompanied by lymphadenopathy therefore probably remaining less frequently undiagnosed in the general population. Expand
On the genetic effects of low-dose radiation -
TLDR
Arguments in favor of inapplicability of the linear non-threshold theory to the radiation doses, comparable to those from the natural radiation background, are discussed here. Expand
