Radioactive Baby Teeth: The Cancer Link
This important book describes past and current studies measuring amounts of Strontium-90 in baby teeth, and how this radioactive chemical raises the risk of childhood cancer.
The book reads like a mystery, beginning with the discovery of an old ammunition bunker where thousands of baby teeth from the 1950s are stored. It is an easy-to-read account of one of the most crucial science and health issues of the 20th century.

The Enemy Within: The High Cost of Living Near Nuclear Reactors
This book offers substantial evidence of the adverse health effects of radioactive emissions in high risk areas near each nuclear reactor site.
"At a time when both environmental and consumer protection legislation is under attack, Gould's book is a potent and alarming reminder of the necessity of continued vigilance and skepticism in the face of the government's and industry's reassurances concerning the dangers of nuclear power....With a wealth of backup data, Gould raises the critical and unanswered questions on the risks of breast cancer and other hazards of living near nuclear reactors. However controversial, we ignore Gould's warning at our own peril."

Deadly Deceit: Low-Level Radiation High Level Cover-Up
Published in 1990 by Four Wall Eight Windows.
Deadly Deceit discusses the importance of statistical estimates of excess numbers of deaths with regard to man-made radioactive pollution. Practical examples are given showing global effects from Chernobyl fallout in 1986, low-level radiation effects from nuclear bomb tests, and similar effects from nuclear power reactors.

Low Level Radiation and Immune System Damage: An Atomic Era Legacy
by Joseph J. Mangano
This book establishes an undeniable connection between the nuclear buildup of the past and the widespread health problems seen today. While baby boomers were growing up in the 40s and 50s, aboveground atomic bomb tests and startups of civilian nuclear power plants were carried out without fear of public exposure to radioactive emissions. Although the consequences of low-level radiation are still hotly debated, Mangano's research findings emphasize a direct link between nuclear exposure and immune system deficiency.

Profiles In Power: The Antinuclear Movement And The Dawn Of The Solar Age
Dr. Jerry Brown's book, Profiles In Power, presents, in five case studies, the compelling stories of ten 'Davids' who won against the nuclear 'Goliath.' Dr. Brown, and his co-author Rinaldo Brutoco, also profile individuals involved with soft energy alternatives, offering a viable alternative to nuclear technology.
These studies demonstrate how we each can make a difference, by exploring how others have brought about dramatic turnabouts in the American nuclear arena.

Chemical Exposure And Disease Diagnostic and Investigative Techniques
by Janette D. Sherman, M.D.
In any scientific discipline it is rare to find a book that does not oversimplify, and yet can be understood by the untrained. Chemical Exposure and Disease is precisely such a book, making complex issues clear to the general public untrained in medicine and toxicology. This book does not discuss the health effects of radiation. But to truly understand the effects of radiation, it is necessary to also know the adverse consequences of chemical exposure. We believe Dr. Sherman's book is ideal for learning how chemicals effect our bodies.
