Reference Girl: Questions worth asking


What are common sources of ionizing radiation? Why do radiation regulators create and use a Reference Individual? What reference individual does our (US) government use now? How is the Reference Individual used? Why change the Reference?

Reference Girl is a project to improve protection for everyone (our species) from ionizing radiation. Please see this short fact sheet at Gender and Radiation Impact Project (GRIP) for answers to these questions about Reference Girl.
