 LAWRENCE LIVERMORE NATIONAL LABORATORY: THIS WEEK AT THE LAB
 LIVERMORE, Calif., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Following is a digest of feature and news stories form Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory which includes a contact name and telephone number:
 RADIATION


Hiroshima A-Bomb Produced More Radiation Than Previously Thought
 Findings of a Laboratory study challenge standard estimates of the radiation exposure to survivors of the Hiroshima atomic bomb. The study shows that the bomb produced up to 10 times more low-energy neutrons at distances of 1 to 2 kilometers from ground zero than previously believed. Estimates of radiation exposure to atomic bomb survivors form the basis for calculating radiation-induced cancer risks in humans, and the general effect of the new study could be to lower the apparent risk of radiation exposure.
