Radiation and the effects of radioactivity have been known for more than years. International research spanning this period has yielded a great deal of information about radiation and its biological effects and this activity has resulted in the discovery of many applications in medicine and industry including cancer therapy, medical diagnostics, and quality control during manufacturing. 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. Mar 06,  · Let me start by saying that this is the fourth edition of the book previously called "Handbook of Health Physics and Radiological Health". Why they took the "Handbook of" part out of the title is beyond me - those were the two most important words. This is not a textbook, it's a reference book. There's no prose/5(12). Radiation Therapy and You is for people who are about to receive or are now receiving radiation therapy for cancer. Family and friends may also want to read this booklet. This booklet is a guide you can refer to throughout radiation therapy. It includes facts about radiation therapy and side effects.
