Christopher Busby is an expert on the health effects of ionizing radiation. He qualified in Chemical Physics at the Universities of London and Kent, and worked on the molecular physical chemistry of living cells for the Wellcome Foundation. Professor Busby is the Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk based in Brussels and has edited many of its publications since its founding in 1998. He has held a number of honorary University positions, including Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Health of the University of Ulster and is currently Guest Researcher at Jacobs University Bremen, Germany. In his book Wings of Death (1995) he argued that the radiation risk models employed by national governments were unsafe for internal radionuclide exposures like those from Uranium weapons and Strontium-90, and he showed that the global cancer epidemic which began in 1980 was a consequence of the atmospheric nuclear tests of the 1960s. He followed this in 2007 with Wolves of Water, which examined cancer and radiological pollution of the Irish Sea, work funded by the Irish State. He has made several epidemiological studies of radiation effects, most recently in Fallujah, Iraq. Busby currently lives in Riga, Latvia.

The latest surge in radiation at Fukushima nuclear plant may suggest not only additional water leaks at the site, but could also mean fission is occurring outside the crippled reactor, explains Chris Busby from the European Committee on Radiation Risk. September 02, 2013 08:0927
Environmentalists point to various dangerous consequences of using fracking technology, but none can be compared to the issue of radiation exposure and radioactive contamination of the development areas it poses. August 28, 2013 14:1413
I recently pointed out, this operation has to go on forever - a long sickness, but at least not a sudden death. However, this week begins a new development in the potential sudden death department. August 20, 2013 07:5119
Fukushima is a nightmare disaster area, and no one has the slightest idea what to do. The game is to prevent the crippled nuclear plant from turning into an “open-air super reactor spectacular” which would result in a hazardous, melted catastrophe. August 07, 2013 20:3038
Christopher Busby, a chemist from the UK, bemoaned the media’s lack of explanation on the true cause of the explosion in Texas Wednesday. He told RT the blast posed a threat to firefighters because of "hallucinogenic properties" in airborne chemicals. April 19, 2013 04:2760
