Detailed Information:
RPHP's current project is a National Baby Teeth Study.The Federal Government no longer collects information on how much radioactivity is entering our bones. Yet this information is crucial for determining whether nuclear power plants and weapons facilities are affecting our health and contributing to America's cancer epidemic. RPHP is conducting a national study of the levels of radioactive strontium-90 in baby teeth. Once RPHP obtains the results, we will run statistical tests to determine whether these levels are higher around nuclear facilities than the rest of the country. For this study to be successful, we need thousands of teeth, so please help. ------------------------------------- The Radiation and Public Health Project (RPHP) is a nonprofit organization established by scientists and physicians dedicated to understanding the relationships between low-level, nuclear radiation and public health. RPHP's longterm mission includes:Research: Studying the links between low-level radiation and world-wide increases in diseases, especially cancer and those affecting the newborn and children and to become the leading, world-wide source of information on radiation and public health issues.Education: Publishing the results of research dealing with the impact of low-level radiation on public health and to disseminate this information to the public, media, policy makers and the scientific community.Public awareness: Promoting public awareness and responsible public policy related to radiation and public health, in the areas of freedom of information...objective medical and scientific nvestigation...institutional accountability...independent oversight...and responsible public health and environmental policy.
