A 1978 Government Accounting Office (GAO) report on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) efforts to protect the public from exposure to low-level radiation was requested by New York Congressmember Elizabeth Holtzman, in August 1977.
The potential harmful health effects of low-level radiation were recognized and became a subject of national interest.
According to the 15 page report, symptoms attributed to low-level exposure to radiation include, “headache, weariness, dizziness, irritability, emotional instability, partial loss of memory, loss of appetite, cardiovascular effects, electroencephalogram changes, blood chemistry changes, changes in respiration, and possible genetic effects.”
Today there are zero agencies monitoring or measuring radiation to protect public health and environmental safety.
Despite the lack of a protective safety standard and the failure of government agencies to stop radiation, individuals and communities everywhere are organizing to establish strong regulatory barriers at the local level to stop radiation deployments, prevent harm, and protect all life.
