Dr. Caldicott
Thank you for such an informed and well documented verification of how harmful the effects of radiation are to both humanity and to our environment. We need many many more such as yourself, and for myself and those whom I love and know-my most sincere thanks and gratitude for your efforts. I salute you madame.
