Intro/Background
#1
Atomic history goes back many years, beginning around 460 B.C. when "Greek philosopher, Democritus, develop[ed] the idea of atoms" http://www.nobeliefs.com/atom.htm

It didn't "catch" though and atomic research didn't "take" until the early 1800's with English chemist, John Dalton, determined that matter consisted of "elementary lumpy particles (atoms)". (ibid).

1897, "English physicist J.J. Thomson discovered the electron and proposed a model for the structure of the atom." (ibid).

1900, "Max Planck, a professor of theoretical physics in Berlin showed that when you vibrate atoms strong enough, such as when you heat an object until it glows, you can measure the energy only in discrete units. He called these energy packets, quanta." (ibid).

1905, "Albert Einstein wrote a ground-breaking paper that explained that light absorption can release electrons from atoms, a phenomenon called the "photoelectric effect."" (ibid). 

1911, "Ernest Rutherford thought it would prove interesting to bombard atoms with these alpha rays, figuring that this experiment could investigate the inside of the atom (sort of like a probe)." (ibid). 

1919, "Rutherford finally identify the particles of the nucleus as discrete positive charges of matter." (ibid).

1912, "Danish physicist, Niels Bohr came up with a theory that said the electrons do not spiral into the nucleus and came up with some rules for what does happen." (ibid).

More occurred later with each researcher offering new concepts and methodologies. Other notable researchers include:
German physicist, Arnold Sommerfeld; Austrian physicist, Wolfgang Pauli; Frenchman, Louis de Broglie; Austrian physicist, Erwin Schrödinger; German physicist, Max Born; German physicist Werner Heisenberg; English physicist James Chadwick (discovered the neutron); Paul Dirac; Carl Anderson; Japanese physicist, Hideki Yukawa; Murray Gell-Mann; Yuval Ne'man. (ibid).

"From 1974 thru 1984 the [Mann & Ne'man] theory predicted three more quarks called "charm," "bottom" (or beauty), and "top" (or truth). And each quark has their corresponding anti-quark."

I give you this brief origin of atomic research because, along the way, certain medical events also occurred which can be tied back to experiments of some of these folks (and others not listed, such as those involved in the famous Beagle studies).
By noting the historic record of events associated with atomic research, we may find ways to break through the veil occluding the truth about the health impacts of nuclear radiation.

Que pase bien.
