Radiation and Radioisotopes[WLOs: 4, 5] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3]

Prior to beginning work on this journal, read Chapter 8 from the course text, Essentials of Environmental Health (3rd ed) and watch the video Inside Japan’s Nuclear Meltdown (Full Documentary) | FrontlineLinks to an external site..

As you saw in your pro-con analysis of DDT, some “cures” must be balanced against the negative side effects. Radiation is another such case. In your journal entry this week, think about what you have learned from Chapter 8 and the documentary. Explain in-depth how you find the balancing points for the valuable applications of radiation (e.g., power generation, medical treatment, food safety, or communication) against the potential costs (e.g., illness, disfigurement, cancer, or death). Choose one example of ionizing and one of nonionizing radiation. Explore your thoughts and feelings about this from both an individual and a societal perspective. Do you think change is called for?

Your journal assignment should be at least 500 words in length.
