Nuclear power is not needed for modern medicine!

Did you know that modern medicine does not depend on nuclear power? All electricity producing reactors in Canada and around the world could be shut down permanently with little or no impact on best medical practices.

Hospitals do not need nuclear power, and never have. Any isotopes (radioactive materials) that are considered medically required can be produced by accelerators or small research reactors. These are different reactors than the kind that produce electricity.

For more info, check out the fact sheet produced by the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility, HERE. At the end of the one-page fact sheet is a link to more detailed information supporting all the facts.
