“Exposure to even very low levels of radiation is more dangerous than previously estimated, especially for women, children, and during prenatal life,” said Dr. Kathy Nolan, pediatrician, President of Physicians for Social Responsibility of New York and co-founder of Concerned Health Professionals of New York. “Developing embryos, fetuses, and children have immature and rapidly growing organ systems, making them exquisitely sensitive to environmental exposures. Proportionally, they also receive greater doses of contaminants found in air, water, and food compared with adults, putting them at much greater risk from exposure to even tiny amounts of radioactive contaminants. There is no safe dose of radiation during prenatal and perinatal life, and cumulative harmful effects would result from multiple, ongoing exposures.”
