  • I was diagnosed with Graves' disease, an illness of the thyroid gland. Instead of surgery, I was given radiation treatment.
    -- Gail Devers

  • To my mind, the theory of [evolution] does not stand up at all. If living matter is not, then, caused by the interplay of atoms, natural forces, and radiation [i.e., time, chance, and chemistry], how has it come into being? I think, however, that we must go further than this and admit that the only acceptable explanation is creation.
    -- Henry Lipson

  • All living creatures are sparks from the radiation of God’s brilliance, emerging from God like the rays of the sun.
    -- Hildegard of Bingen

  • Scientology is the only specific (cure) for radiation (atomic bomb) burns.
    -- L. Ron Hubbard

  • It was as if she had emitted a pulse of radiation that reached him even where he stood, and it bathed him and it burned him.
    -- Laini Taylor

  • There is no safe amount of radiation. Even small amounts do harm.
    -- Linus Pauling

  • Our knowledge of stars and interstellar matter must be based primarily on the electromagnetic radiation which reaches us. Nature has thoughtfully provided us with a universe in which radiant energy of almost all wave lengths travels in straight lines over enormous distances with usually rather negligible absorption.
    -- Lyman Spitzer

  • For in 1900 all electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths was already known at least to the extent that one could not seek in it the more striking characteristics of X-rays such as, for example, the strong penetrating power.
    -- Max von Laue

  • I couldn't possibly lead the kind of life I lead, and keep the schedule that I do, having radiation or chemotherapy.
    -- Nancy Reagan

  • I will continue to push for doubling the strength of the U.S. Border Patrol, and to make sure that every cargo container that enters this nation is screened for radiation and potential weapons of mass destruction.

  • At my age, the radiation will probably do me good.
    -- Norman Wisdom

  • When I was 41, I found a lump the size of a grape in my right breast. I ended up bald, sick and exhausted from surgeries, chemo and radiation treatments. Ah, but I got to live.
    -- Regina Brett

  • I am a type-2 diabetic, and they took me off medication simply because I ate right and exercised. Diabetes is not like a cancer, where you go in for chemo and radiation. You can change a lot through a basic changing of habits.
    -- Sherri Shepherd

  • Very soon I discovered that if one gets a feeling for no more than a dozen other radiation and nuclear constants, one can imagine the subatomic world almost tangibly, and manipulate the picture dimensionally and qualitatively, before calculating more precise relationships.
    -- Stanislaw Ulam

  • Every place, once unique, itself, is strangely shot through with radiations from every other place. ‘There’ was then; ‘here’ is now.
    -- Sven Birkerts

  • The radiations that pour upon the earth cause the biosphere to take on properties unknown to lifeless planetary surfaces, and thus transform the face of the earth. Activated by radiation, the matter of the biosphere collects and redistributes solar energy, and converts it ultimately into free energy capable of doing work on earth.
    -- Vladimir Vernadsky

  • Direction coupling between the various radiations generated in a nuclear reaction both with one another and with the initiating radiation can also be detected and measured by coincidences; this provides valuable information about the structure of the atomic nuclei.
    -- Walther Bothe

  • In this case, the particle formed has correspondingly less energy, whereas the product nucleus passes into the ground state with emission of the quantity of energy saved as gamma radiation.
    -- Walther Bothe

  • The material particle nature of primary cosmic radiation has been confirmed, although the processes turned out to be extraordinarily more complicated than we had assumed.
    -- Walther Bothe

  • Life is a state of constant radiation and absorption; to exist is to radiate; to exist is to be the recipient of radiations.
    -- William George Jordan

  • The dividing line between the wave or particle nature of matter and radiation is the moment “Now.” As this moment steadily advances through time it coagulates a wavy future into a particle past.
    -- William Lawrence Bragg

  • Cellphone and other wireless radiation should be classified as a "probable human carcinogen."

  • Radar, of course, is what cellphone radiation is exactly like. It can be a similar frequency, it's just much weaker power.

  • Folic acid deficiency does the same thing as radiation.
    -- Bruce Ames

  • The technology used to detect if vehicles are carrying radioactive material is so sensitive it can tell if a person recently received radiation as part of a medical procedure.
    -- Timothy Murphy

  • I am not a climatologist, but I don't think any of the other witnesses are either. I do work in the related field of atomic, molecular and optical physics. I have spent my professional life studying the interactions of visible and infrared radiation with gases - one of the main physical phenomena behind the greenhouse effect. I have published over 200 papers in peer reviewed scientific journals.
    -- William Happer

  • There were schools and hospitals who were ready to take people with undescribed injuries, but not necessarily ready to take people with severe radiation poisoning.
