Time: 12:00pm EST
Duration: 60 minutes
Topic: Impact of Recent Studies on Our Understanding of the Risks of Radiation
Presenter: Ken Chaplin (AECL/CNL - Retired)

Abstract
This talk will focus on four areas of recent radiation research:
  • effects on future generations
  • internal contamination from plutonium, radium, cesium, and others
  • external gamma and x-ray radiation causing cancer
  • dose response models.
Research and opinions of John Boice of the National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP) will be highlighted as will a study of the Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF).  The RERF is the organization that has studied the effects of Hiroshima and Nagasaki for 70 years and has provided the results that inform the radiation protection regulations.   
 
Presenter Bio: 
From high school, I have had a strong interest in energy and the environmental, economic, and health issues surrounding energy.  I graduated with a post-graduate degree in Applied Math from Waterloo, my thesis was on solar energy.  I was then an air quality scientist in the environmental industry.  However, most of my career was at Chalk River labs working for AECL and then Canadian Nuclear Laboratories. 
 
At AECL I modelled ultrasonic waves in metals.  This led to an NDT career as a UT3 and ET2 while I was responsible for the “Ultrasonic Inspection Techniques Section”.  I led or assisted on many CANDU and NRU reactor inspections, developed systems, wrote and qualified procedures.  I currently work for Bruce Power on specialized inspection problems. 
My knowledge of the severe health consequences of fossil fuel power led me to investigate the effects of radiation.  I have been giving talks on the subject for several years.
