There is no need to be afraid of ionising radiation – even after Fukushima

Dr. Andrzej Strupczewski, Professor in NCBJ
Fear is dominating practically every discussions on consequences of the Fukushima accident. However, you need not to fear radiation, you need to understand it.   ----


Narodowe Centrum Badań Jądrowych (NCBJ) jako pierwszy ośrodek w Polsce, skorzystało z dostępu do banku danych Agencji Energii Jądrowej Organizacji Współpracy Gospodarczej i Rozwoju (NEA-DATA-BANK).
NCBJ – as the first institution in Poland – has been granted access to data bank maintained by OECD’s Nuclear Energy Agency. Access to the data will help Świerk researchers to more competently evaluate safety of nuclear facilities, including nuclear power reactors. ----
