Genetic effects of radiation exposure: Lesson from Hiroshima survivors

Mar 21, 2011

On February 27, 2011, when his plane flew over Sendai, Mulvihill thought, “I always remember Japan as hilly and mountainous, but this area is so flat . . . . a big wave could really travel far inland.”

That was twelve days before the tsunami hit Sendai, and John Mulvihill was flying to this year’s meeting held by the Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF).

Mulvihill is a geneticist at the University of Oklahoma, who spoke to SmartPlanet about the genetic effects of radiation exposure. Mulvihill has been doing genetic research on Hiroshima survivors for decades.

The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity, but the one that removes awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside. --Allan Bloom
