The full report from the National Cancer Institute on thyroid doses to
the US population from nuclear weapons testing 1950-70 is now posted
on the NCI web site: http://www.nci.nih.gov. Click on "what's new."
I suggest first examining the summaries, maps, etc. Do not go to the
full text unless you are prepared to spend significant time there.
I think you will find the map of thyroid doses by US county to be
quite helpful in teaching radiation biology. I have imported it to my
graphics software and produced a very nice teaching slide.
