    The R2S Podcast - Episode 4 Part 2: Health Effects of Radiation with Prof. 'Gerry' Thomas

    The R2S Podcast - Episode 4 Part 2: Health Effects of Radiation with Prof. 'Gerry' Thomas

    Nuclear Power is the way out of the destruction wrought by our excessive need for electricity. Yet, the public fear of a meltdown and of the possible radioactive fallout is a block to wider political acceptance.

    I talk to Professor 'Gerry' Thomas, a Molecular Pathologist and the Director of the Chernobyl Tissue Bank, one of the worlds largest collections of studies around the health impacts of radiation.

    When it comes to Radiation, the biggest thing to fear is the fear itself. Join the discussion as we explore what exactly happens when you're exposed to radiation, how the numbers of fatalities has been blown out of proportion, why radioactive cancer is the least of our cancer concerns and what to do in the very unlikely event of a meltdown.
