Ethics and Governance of Nuclear Technology: The Case of the Long Term Management of Radiactive Wastes

LAVELLE S., SCHIEBER C., SCHNEIDER T.

Radioactive waste, remaining radioactive for very long periods up to hundreds of thousands years, introduce a new time dimension never experimented in the field of risk management. This situation led for more than 10 years, to reflections on the societal and organisational

Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Circulatory Disease from Exposure to Low-Level Ionizing Radiation and Estimates of Potential Population Mortality Risks

LITTLE M., SCHNEIDER T. et al.

Although high doses of ionizing radiation have long been linked to circulatory disease, evidence for an association at lower exposures remains controversial. However, recent analyses suggest excess relative risks at occupational exposure levels.
