Ros­alie Bertell, PhD (19292012), was a bio­metrist — a math­e­mati­cian who ana­lyzed risks to health from radi­a­tion and pol­lu­tion. In this inter­view she main­ly tells about her research on radi­a­tion and can­cer, which led to restrict­ing X‑rays to diag­nos­tic uses, revealed how above-ground nuclear test­ing had led to ele­vat­ed breast can­cer cohorts, and helped pre­vent the estab­lish­ment of nuclear pow­er plants in sev­er­al com­mu­ni­ties. Unlike Aus­tralia and Ger­many, for exam­ple, the US is still pro­mot­ing and fund­ing nuclear as clean energy.”
