Best of 2010: Dr. Janette Sherman on the true magnitude of the Chernobyl meltdown and the staggering health effects of nuclear radiation

This week, we hear a repeat of Dr Caldicotts May 17 program featuring an interview with Janette D. Sherman, M.D. on the long-term effects of the 1986 Chernobyl meltdown. Dr. Sherman has recently completed the translation and editing of the book Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and Nature, published by the New York Academy of Sciences in December 2009, which indicates that nearly one million people were killed by the Chernobyl disaster. Download and read the book for free by following the instructions on this page. Dr. Sherman has been an advisor to the National Cancer Institute on breast cancer and to the EPA on pesticides. She is a resource person and speaker for universities and health advocacy groups concerning cancer, birth defects, pesticides, toxic dumpsites, and nuclear radiation. Dr. Sherman is a specialist in internal medicine and toxicology. She has published more than 70 articles in the scientific literature and also writes for the popular press to provide information to the concerned public. She is the author of Lifes Delicate Balance: Causes and Prevention of Breast Cancer, and Chemical Exposure and Disease. As background for this interview, read the article Chernobyl Radiation Killed Nearly One Million People: New Book. And read the review by Dr. Rosalie Bertell, Ph.D. of the Chernobyl book.

Not sure when they made it available free,
or how long it will be available free,
the free link was not listed in the original May 17 entry: http://ifyoulovethisplanet.org/?p=3043
Last I checked, the harcopy version is still expensive.
