The Code Killers:

Why DNA and ionizing radiation are a dangerous mix

An expose of the nuclear industry

by Ace Hoffman

First Published: Fall 2008

"A monumental work" . . . "a wonderful compendium" . . ."superb!" . . . "a million thanks" . . . "a stunning effort and a wonderful resource." . . .

35+ years in the making -- thousands of interviews conducted to research this book! Hundreds of books read -- thousands of magazines scoured! Hundreds of drawings, photos, diagrams, and vital historic documents presented in one place! A unique work! Great for the beginner OR the expert! Bring THE CODE KILLERS to public hearings (and submit it electronically) so you always have the facts handy and THEY DO TOO!

Over 200 copies have already been sent to U.S. Congresspeople and other elected officials around the country. (We are trying to send it to the rest as fast as possible.) But of course, letters from someone in their own district make the most difference, so please ask your Congresspeople to read THE CODE KILLERS when it arrives!


* Rems, Rads, Grays, Sieverts, Curies...

* How nuclear reactors work (and not)

* Radiation effects on the human body

* The nuclear fuel cycle
