Haemoglobin concentrations, erythrocyte counts, haematocrit values, and mean corpuscular volumes, haemoglobin, and haemoglobin concentrations were determined on a group of miners in a uranium mine and in unexposed persons. There were small, statistically significant differences of mean values from those of controls, but the mean values remained well within normal limits. There was no evident damage to red blood cell formation.... More →

Rev. 2.1
Final Draft for Comment
February 2007

The purpose of this Interim Policy and Guidance Pending Rulemaking for Control and Disposition of Technologically-Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials in Colorado is to provide disposal policy, general guidance and suggested criteria for the control and release of technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive material (TENORM). Radioactivity is naturally present in rocks, soils, surface water and groundwater at trace concentrations. The radioactivity in TENORM is due to a few predominant radionuclides ... More →

As part of its Technical Assistance Programme for developing countries, the IAEA has conducted a series of training courses in prospecting for nuclear raw materials for example, in 1974 a regional course on uranium and thorium prospecting was held in India, and an interregional training course on uranium geochemical prospecting methods was held in Austria in 1975. In September 1977, another interregional training course on uranium geochemical prospecting methods was held at Skofja Loka, Slovenia, Yugoslavia. Twenty-four delegates from Afghanistan, Algeria, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, ... More →

The Fear of radiation has come to the tsetse fly, but in this case it is warranted. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), partnering with the Senegalese government and the United Nations FAO, used a radiation-based Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) to almost completely eradicate the tsetse fly scourge in the Niayes region of this West African nation.

The tsetse fly is a bloodsucking insect that kills more than three million livestock in sub-Saharan Africa every year with the nagana wasting disease, sickens and kills over 75,000 people with the sleeping sickness, and destroys o... More →

The results of a study undertaken by the European Commission on the external costs (environmental and social) of various energy production systems is likely to be influential in determining how the European Union will develop its energy supply systems. The estimated costs for nuclear power from the study will be based on the findings of the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR), with the costs being dominated by the estimated long term (10,000 y) population doses due to radon (Rn-222) released from mill tailings....

Uranium is in everything from rocks to soil and plants to water. It occurs mostly in low levels and is not considered a public health risk. But too much of the radioactive element is a concern even when it's from a natural source, as it is in several water supplies in Kansas, said Don Whittemore, Kansas Geological Survey geochemist. In 2003, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) set a drinking-water standard for uranium at a maximum contamination level (MCL) of 30 parts per billion and gave public water providers until December 2007 to complete monitoring. Not all Kansas communities w... More →

In 1965, the United States launched a small, experimental reactor, the first U.S. nuclear reactor into space. After testing, it was shut down after 43 days of operation, but remains in orbit. Re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere is anticipated in about 4,000 years.

The designed age for nuclear reactors in the U.S. is 40 years. The average age of the 104 working plants is 32 years, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), a part of the Department of Energy. With age is sure to come more maintenance and outages. Aging power plants are being re-fitted with new safety and maintenance procedures springing from NRC analysis of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant damage in Japan caused by the tsunami. Under a phased schedule, NRC is requiring new safety additions for 31 U.S. reactors that are similar in design to the three Japanese reacto... More →
