Helen Caldicott Live
“It’s time we had a revolution,” declares Dr. Helen Caldicott, founder of the Physicians for Social Responsibility. “Take your country back!” In this videotape of a 1992 lecture, the gifted speaker, dedicated environmentalist and author of books including If You Love This Planet and Nuclear Madness, details the corporate and governmental forces which are destroying the earth. “The world is dying,” says Dr. Caldicott in this moving presentation. And she clearly and forcefully tells what must be done to stop this.

Dr. Ernest Sternglass Live
Fallout and Breast Cancer
For many years, Dr. Sternglass has consistently lifted the curtain of secrecy on the effects of low-level radiation - demonstrating that “safe doses” determined by the nuclear establishment are not safe. In this hard-hitting 1993 lecture, he outlines his most recent findings including the role fission products in the diet play in the breast cancer epidemic. Long Island and Connecticut are emphasized. Dr. Sternglass, a professor emeritus of radiological physics at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, is the author of Secret Fallout: Low-Level Radiation from Hiroshima to Three Mile Island.

Life, Death and the Nuclear Establishment
Environmental investigative reporter Karl Grossman, EnviroVideo’s program director and author of Cover-Up: What You Are Not Supposed to Know About Nuclear Power and Power Crazy, details who and what is behind the new push to revive nuclear power. To demonstrate the lethal dangers of nuclear power, he uses U.S. government documents which project the number of people expected to be killed or left with cancer as a result of a core meltdown at each nuclear plant in the nation. He discusses the stance of the Clinton administration and discloses the role of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency in pushing nuclear power worldwide.

Dr. Jay M. Gould Live
Dr. Gould, co-author of Deadly Deceit: Low Level Radiation, High-Level Cover-Up and former member of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Science Advisory Board, uses government data (obtained under the Freedom of Information Act) to show that there have been hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by the “routine” operation of nuclear plants. He also demonstrates that there are far more fatalities than those admitted resulting from Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and other accidents. Dr. Gould connects the release of radiation to the epidemic of breast cancer and breakdowns in the human immune system and related diseases, including AIDS.

Toxics and Human Health
David Ozonoff, M.D., M.P.H., professor of public health at Boston University School of Public Health, and Bev Paigen, R.N., present a common sense approach to the toxicology of human organ systems affected by toxic waste. They explain how extremely small amounts of toxic chemicals affect the reproductive, immune and nervous systems and can cause cancer in humans.

Dr. Helen Caldicott at the Ethical Culture Society
In this compelling 1994 presentation in New York City, co-sponsored by the Nuclear Information and Resource Service, Dr. Caldicott stresses how and why the nuclear industry must be stopped - immediately.
