Subject: Dr. Jay Gould, author of Deadly Deceit and The Enemy Within,
  has passed away at 90. (RESEND -- TYPO CORRECTION "FAIRY")


Dear Readers,

Dr. Jay M. Gould, radiation research scientist, mathematician, statistician, and author of Deadly Deceit: Low-Level Radiation / High-Level Cover-up (1990, with Benjamin A. Goldman) and The Enemy Within: The High Cost of Living Near Nuclear Reactors (1996), has passed away at 90.  His Tooth Fairy Project and the other important work of the Radiation and Public Health Project is expected to continue.  ( )

Dr. Gould's vision to form a group of independent scientists to study the issues of the health risks of nuclear reactors was unprecedented in the anti-nuclear movement and has become a standard for other environmental movements that want to prove their points scientifically.

Activists involved in Dr. Gould's Tooth Fairy Project have said they will continue to do their best to continue gathering baby teeth for this important epidemiological study, which is testing for the calcium-mimicking element Strontium-90, a reactor-produced isotope that is a known cause of bone and lymph cancers and leukemia.

Dr. Gould died at 7:15 last night (Friday, September 16th, 2005) in New York City.  This author spoke to him a couple of times.  Dr. Gould was a wonderful and warm human being who will be missed by everyone who worked with him.  He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Jane, and by two daughters, Diana and Emily, and two grandchildren.
