  • Trade paperback. Condition: Very good. First Printing [Stated]. v, [1], 346 pages. Appendix A-D. Figures. Maps. Tables. References. Index. Ernest J. Sternglass, Joseph J. Mangano, and William McDonnell were members of The Radiation and Public Health Project. Inscribed by Sternglass inside the front cover. Inscription reads To Henry and Jenna The evidence is there, but the public does not know of it. With warmest regards Ernst Oct. 12, 97. Jay Martin Gould earned his bachelor's degree from Brooklyn College and his doctorate from Columbia University. In 1985, Dr. Gould founded the Radiation and Public Health Project, an antinuclear research group. Jay M. Gould was a statistician and epidemiologist whose contention that radiation from nuclear power plants was causing high rates of cancer in surrounding neighborhoods made him a leading figure in the antinuclear movement. , Dr. Gould routinely warned that low levels of radiation from nuclear reactors were far more dangerous than commonly believed and were quietly poisoning Americans. Ernest Joachim Sternglass (24 September 1923 - 12 February 2015) was a professor emeritus at the University of Pittsburgh and director of the Radiation and Public Health Project. He is an American physicist and author, best known for his controversial research on the health risks of low-level radiation from atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons and from nuclear power plants. Joseph Mangano, MPH, MBA, is the Executive Director for the Radiation and Public Health Project in New York and has served the organization since 1989. From the rear cover of this 346-page book: "'The Enemy Within' exposes the startling correlation between deadly diseases and proximity to nuclear reactors. Using data from the National Cancer Institute, state health departments, and the Center for Disease Control, author Jay Gould offers official statistical evidence proving that residents of nuclear counties - the 1,321 counties within 100 miles of a reactor - suffer disproportionately from the interaction of nuclear fallout with industrial pollutants and other sources of urban stress. Gould examines why women in nuclear counties have such a hugely inflated risk of breast cancer, why there are large numbers of premature and underweight births, why AIDS and other immune deficiency syndromes seem to be related more to where you live than how you live. The answers lie in nuclear fallout patterns. In the fifty years since the commencement of the Nuclear Age, over 1.5 million American women have died of breast cancer; prior to 1945 the breast cancer incidence rate had been declining. The anomaly is also true for low birthweights and immune deficiency syndromes. [This book] looks closely at the true cost of nuclear fallout - costs we can no longer afford to pay - and it presents our only reasonable solution: to ban the operation of nuclear power stations, nuclear weapon manufacturing, and nuclear bomb testing.".
