About the Author

Florian Oelck has a master's degree in International Studies from the University of Ottawa.


"This book combines accessibility with the authors' integrity and competence. Written from the perspective of an experienced physician and drawing conclusions from decades of evidence it provides a vital resource for those who look for critical understanding and comprehension." - Ursula M. Franklin, FRSC, Professor Emerita, University of Toronto "Too much of what is written about radiation, and its adverse effects, is conveyed in the language of physics and statistics. Dewar and Oelck teach through stories, each one fascinating, and the lessons they offer come with just the right dose of humility." - David Richardson, Department of Epidemiology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
