About Us

The purpose of SERV is to provide * radiation* victims *and others* with documentation about radiation exposure and radiation related subjects. Anyone desiring radiation related information is welcome to contact us with requests. No “membership” fees or payment is required and a Web-site will facilitate the distribution of information and documents from SERV.

Other purposes are to create and maintain a repository of documents and various information related to the impact of radiation on people and communities; to study and disseminate, in a non-partisan manner, factual information on the health, social and environmental impacts of radiation on human life; to enable fact gathering by the public at large; to help individuals affected by radiation gain access to supportive resources and assure the preservation of valuable private and government papers of historical importance to the radiation affected community.

SERV is committed to support accuracy and truth in dealing with the subject of radiation and to provide non-biased, factual information to researchers, attorneys, journalists, authors, educators, medical staff, industry workers and the public.

SERV is dedicated to the correction of inaccurate, false and unsubstantiated radiation related announcements and statements currently in use and in the public eye.

SERV is committed to recognize and encourage honest and truthful representation of *radiation, and radiation impacts*, and promote public awareness and public recognition.

SERV will encourage and support the creation of a memorial to at least 20 000 dead and millions of living radiation victims of *the industrialization of nuclear technology in* America.

SERV was incorporated in January of 1998 to be able to *serve* the ever-growing number of Americans who need assistance in the form of education and information and to provide them with vital information important to their physical and emotional welfare.

We have become acutely aware of the healing ability of truth and compassion!

    BEAUTIFUL! Clear! well designed to be simple. A great start.

    I hope one of the things you will add is a link to the page where my work on radiation and gender is posted: http://www.nirs.org/radiation/radhealth/radhealthhome.htm on that page you can find my original 2011 paper “Atomic Radiation is More Harmful to Women” — where it clearly states that radiation is harmful to men; but not as much as girls and women… and other items. None have any copy right, so feel free to cite, link or even re-post on SERV!

    There is a very important 60 Minutes interview with Benjamin Ferencz, a prosecutor at the Nueremburg trials of Nazi war criminals, which contains an interesting perspective on war. Ferencz makes the profound statement that “War makes murderers out of otherwise decent people. All wars, and all decent people.”

    It is worth reading the entire transcript of this interview at: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/what-the-last-nuremberg-prosecutor-alive-wants-the-world-to-know/. The interview helps us to understand why some “otherwise decent people” are willing to contaminate or even kill their fellow countrymen when they think that their actions are necessary and required by their “patriotic duty” to protect their country.

    A consensus is developing for a worldwide ban on nuclear weapons. This was manifested by a series of conferences on the humanitarian effect of nuclear weapons including the one in Vienna, Austria in December 2014. See the conference program on their website at:


    This movement has culminated in the recent United Nations vote to make the use or threatened use of nuclear weapons illegal. There has also been progress towards an international treaty to eliminate nuclear weapons with a vote in the UN expected in September.

  4. Dennis Nelson says:

    On Sept. 20, 2017, 50 nations signed a resolution to make the use or threatened use of nuclear weapons illegal. This is an important step towards the eventual total elimination of nuclear weapons. Daryl Kimball has written a thoughtful essay on this topic. You can read the full essay on the Arms Control Association website which can be found at: https://www.armscontrol.org/act/2017-10/focus/prohibit-not-promote-nuclear-weapons-use

    Good News! The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) has just been awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize. This group, based in Geneva, Switzerland, has been active since 2007 with efforts to pass an international treaty to ban all nuclear weapons worldwide. This effort is a follow on to the already existing international treaties prohibiting poison gas, land-mines and cluster-munitions. Please see the ICAN website at: http://www.icanw.org/ for more information on their activities.
