This week, we hear Dr. Caldicott’s November 2010 address to residents from the town of Port Hope, Canada. Much of Port Hope was built using uranium tailings from the nearby uranium refinery, posing potentially serious health risks for the town’s population. Dr. Caldicott outlines the medical consequences that residents may be facing. Read two Toronto Star articles about Dr. Caldicott’s activism around Port Hope: November 16, 2010: Sue government over toxic town, activist tells Port Hope and February 1, 2011: Activist urges Ottawa to examine Port Hope residents for radioactivity.
